Friendly people, good quality gear. Skilled. We, (experienced) family of four, were accompanied by two divemasters who were skilled and paid attention.

Had an awesome dive with Antonio. He was very careful and always made sure that the group stayed together underwater. Antonio took his time during the briefing and checked with everyone when our last dive was to make sure we still mastered the basics.

We only did one dive with Antonio and really enjoyed it. Good Equipment, getting the time to fit it. Nice Briefing with No Rush. Short boat Trip. Relaxed dive. Just how a Holiday should be.

DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT DIVE HERE. Matter of time before they have a serious injury, a lot of the reviews seem to be of people inexperienced. If you are, please do not dive, you are not insured. I booked a try dive for my girlfriend and a fun dive for myself, now I know this wasn’t a DSD course now but I didn’t realise at the time. There was zero pre dive medical form filled in and no medical questions asked. The brief was in broken English and the DM was obviously in a rush to get in and get out. He wildly underweighted my girlfriend and had to drag her down. I queried this but he tried to be little me in front of the students. I only have around 70 dives so I bit my tongue. We went to a shallow location and he ran through the skills with the two none divers in our group of four. Me and him being three and four. I was just generally having a little look around for things of interest and didn’t take an active interest in my group. My GF could not clear her mask properly and she surfaced. Obviously distressed he did nothing to calm her and I reassured her, she mentioned for me to not show her the skills as I am not an instructor (PADI rescue) I should have cancelled the dive there for me and her but I didn’t. We went back down to the bottom at about 2m and ran through clearing the mask again. Again I trusted the instructor to be in total control and care of my GF, then we set off on the dive. I was buddied with a none diver who luckily had good boyancy and trim and it was quite pleasant. I was constantly checking on my GF who was 5-10m away with the instructor. I had to monitor the none diver with me and watch her air for her then it all suddenly clicked. We were perhaps 10-15m under the surface further away than the instructor could react and I was looking after his student. I quickly finned to the instructor and signaled I hit 100bar which was what the dive was finishing at as per the brief. He gave me an “ok” then passed my girlfriends hand along to me. He then went with the other student and set off. Me and my GF were lagging behind by 10-15m as I wanted to just check she was ok. I looked at her air and she was at 50bar. The gauges showed this in red which made her assume she had no air and she went into a panic and tried to shoot up. I dragged her down as we were at maybe 10m but no depth gauge was provided by the dive shop in any of the kits, again I didn’t think anything of this at the time. She said after the dive that the instructor never checked her air mid dive to her knowledge. I checked mine and my buddies pre dive and they were 180bar which was light, again the signs were there that this was not a proper operation So I had an underweighted none diver low on air in a full panic at 10m. The instructor? Perhaps 20m away with the other student heading back to shore. My GF’s mask completely flooded and I saw in her eyes she was in a full swing panic. I dumped my air and grabbed onto her as firmly as I could. I tried to dump her air to find that she had none in her BCD and was positively boyant well under the surface. I got the instructors attention and he signalled me to come to him. I said no and he signalled more violently, we went up slowly and surfaced, ignoring him, Swimming back on the surface. I’m seething with rage at this point and when we get back in the shop I lay on the table everything that went wrong on the dive. I refused to pay and asked for his instructor number, he told me that they don’t have names and number in Italy, and refused to tell me his name when I said I’d spoken to a school in the UK that I trusted and was going to report him to PADI. He then said he was SSI so I told him to give me his SSI credentials then he changed his mind again and said he was NAUI which is the number he gave me Antonio 16 22 86 Honestly I think he was just messing me around and I told him i know what dive centre he owns/works from so lying won’t help. His face dropped when I said this and so I can tell he was lying.

Antonio was a great and experienced guide (retired navy diver). He showed us some great hiding spots of eel and octopus. He checked up on us plenty of times during the dive. One diver had a slight equipment malfunction towards the end of the dive that was not life treating and replaced the piece right after the dive. Quality of marine life and coral is spars, but that's not the fault of the dive shop. All in all, can recommend the dive center.
