Born and raised in the Ognina Sea in Catania, I started the first underwater breaths in my fantastic Sea in 1992.
In 2009 I became a PADI instructor and for about 15 years my passion has turned into work, I deal with diving at 360 degrees every day of the year.
Come with me to discover the Etna volcano under water, between underwater lava flows and biodiversity of the Ionian sea!

Esperienza fantastica e il team di Vincenzo è molto professionale e ti aiuta a scendere sotto acqua e a compensare senza che neanche te ne accorgi. È adatto a chiunque.

Indescrivibile! È stato così bello che a breve farò sicuramente il corso per il brevetto con loro, non solo sono tutti gentilissimi ma anche super preparati! Se ci fossero state 10 stelle gliele avrei date ma purtroppo ce ne sono solo 5 🤣 a prestoooo ❤️❤️

Wer immer schon mal tauchen wollte: dies ist DIE Gelegenheit dafür. Eine super Erfahrung für uns als Anfänger, wir wurden geduldig eingewiesen, Erika und Andrea haben so gut auf uns aufgepasst und gehen ganz genau auf die Stärken und Schwächen ihrer Gäste ein. Besser kann man sich nicht betreut fühlen. Vielen Dank für dieses tolle Erlebnis!

We first got a clear and understandable introduction for the diving session. During the actual diving session, two of the instructors guided and supported us (a group of three people). We were about five meters deep in the ocean. We could see rocks, fish, sand and sea ​​urchins. The things we could see were not that colorful. It was my first time diving in the ocean and I really enjoyed learning and practicing the basics. The instructors were very friendly and helpful.

Friendly staff; wasn't as colorful underwater as I expected. I had problems with ear equalization - the staff reacted well and one of them stayed with me to help.

Super expérience avec ErIkA qui était notre monitrice aujourd’hui. Les explications étaient très claires et ErIkA a prit le temps de nous mettre à l’aise et en confiance. Nous étions en semi autonomie lors de la plongée ce qui était vraiment très agréable. ErIkA n’était jamais loin de nous et nous regardait souvent pour savoir si tout allait bien. Nous avons commencé par un endroit peu profond pour tester le masque et notre capacité à respirer sous l’eau avant d’ensuite aller plus loin pour visiter une grotte formée par la lave. La plongée a durée environ 40 min ce qui est très agréable. Une vraie sensation d’avoir le temps et de ne pas être pressé, ce qui est super ! Nous avons pris un réel plaisir et nous recommandons fortement ce club de plongée. Encore merci ErIkA pour ce moment superbe !!
