Activity description

In the shadow of mighty Mount Etna lies a watery Eden, resplendent with wildlife nourished by a legacy left by a turbulent volcanic past. Explore Catania's hidden basalt caves and vibrant aquatic forests courtesy of Jonio Pro-Dive.

On the shores of eastern Sicily, Catania still bears the scars of a life spent at the mercy of Etna, but with every rumble of the active volcano follows a reward - a bounty of nutrients that has resulted in one of Europe's busiest coral communities. A technicolour of fish, fauna and marine mammals, the shallow cave systems around the Sicilian coast are the ideal nursery for beginner scuba divers.

Introduction to scuba diving
Following your instructor from the coast to submerged landscapes, beginners have the opportunity to experience scuba diving without the need to take a boat or descend to depths. The ideal way to build your water confidence and get to grips with the kit, excursions are organised in small groups of 10 to ensure in-water supervision.

Dive sites
Located a stone's throw from the dive centre lies some of Sicily's most popular dive sites including Grotta Jonica, Grottadell'amore and the Arco Grande. A set of grottos and underwater arches, shallow depths of 12-15m are easy to navigate and offer multiple chances to spot fishcolourful corals and even an octopus if you're lucky!

Night dives
As the rest of the reef is asleep, the marine landscape comes alive with bioluminescent nightlife. Riding from the deep on the reefs 24/7 rota, night dives are perfect for beginners and experienced divers alike.

Le moniteur était très sympathique, il nous a accompagné pour notre première plongée et nous a appris les techniques. L’eau est un petit peu trouble mais nous avons pu voir pas mal de poissons et étoiles de mer. A faire !
