Dive Sicily is a small dive center and offers safe diving around Naxos and Taormina in a very friendly atmosphere. There’s also some day tours to sites further away.
All dives are boat dives, sometimes with a short stop at a cafe for the surface interval. It was my first time diving in the Mediterranean and I was positively surprised by the variety of marine life there. The area also offers some sites with archeological interest. All in all very enjoyable at a good price.

Had the most brilliant experience here with Alex, Marta and Natalie. Excellent diving, and the staff made gaining my open water diving qualification both easy and fun to complete. Hosts very personable and friendly, and enjoyed our lunch with them every day after our morning dives. Thoroughly recommend either learning to dive or build experience in the water with dive Sicily. Can’t wait to come back to visit and dive again!

Alex, Marta and Natalie made sure we had a great time helping us through our open water referral. Through the course, Alex was a fantastic teacher, making sure we knew the required drills inside and out. Once qualified, Marta made an extra effort to make sure the beginners in the group felt safe and enjoyed the dives. We all thoroughly enjoyed and will be back one day I’m sure!

Joined Alex, Marta and a diving group from Manchester for a great couple of dives today. Well organised, well run. Safe and enjoyable day, led by a very knowledgeable, friendly, calm and experienced team who made me feel very welcome.
Thankyou all for a great day!

DiveSicily is great. We were very grateful to Alex, Angelo and Kay. We completed our open water certification and couldn't of been happier with the experience. I have had a not so good experience in the past in Cambodia with a military-type dive instructor in horrendously murky waters.. But the crew put me at ease and we had a great time! they are flexible with times and very, very helpful!!
We can't wait to go back :))

We booked a "fishing trip" for 6 adults. We paid extra to have a chef and server, who would cook the catch of the day and serve Prosecco during the trip. It was very clear to us when we saw the fishing rods and lines that even if the Giardini-Naxos were crowded with fish it would have been impossible to catch anything worth eating on the fishing lines provided to us as they would never have been strong enough to pull in anything but the few small mullet fish we did catch. Yes, we understand that there is no guarantee we would catch fish. Alex asked "what did we expect?" When you pay extra for a chef and server, you expect that there will be a chef and server. You expect there will be enough provisions to provide a simple lunch should the fishing not be successful. I assume Alex intended on doubling as a chef. Alex showed us a fish that he supposedly caught earlier and had saved to cook - the fish was what we call at home "Junk Fish". Not edible. Marta was certainly not a server. The extent of her serving was pouring some sort of alcohol fruit drink into small plastic cups and leaving it on the table. Marta then cut some Italian bread, topped it with a spread and ate it herself. I have never met an Italian in all my life who ate in front of you without offering their guests first. We were offered nothing. At the end of the trip Marta showed me the Prosecco from the refrigerator. Well, Marta, what good did it do us if you didn't serve it to us? Fishing trip this was not. When you book a fishing trip you expect to have the equipment for a fishing trip and certainly not anchor near divers and snorkelers as anyone who has any experience fishing knows that you don't fish near swimmers, divers or snorkelers. I expressed my disappointment to Alex very shortly into the trip and he asked that I give it a chance, which was a mistake - we should have asked to turn back. We did ask to end the trip one hour early, so they headed back at a snails pace, pulled the boat near the dock, but would not allow us off until we paid the balance. I expressed my frustration and anger, but there is not much you can do when you are held captive. The cost was supposed to be 600 Euro. We paid a total of 400 Euro. I am sure Alex or Marta will respond to this review with a rebuttal defending their fishing trip and I'm sure you will read an opposing viewpoint on this day. However, if you decide to book with Dive Sicily just take a careful look at the condition of the boat and equipment before taking off from the dock.

My daughter and I travelled to Dive Sicily to complete our open water qualification in July 2013.
Communication was excellent with Alex, the owner, and we were promised an extra free dive in the Blue Grotto, loads of free underwater photos and free log books. When we arrived, after a friendly hello from Alex ( who was late in arriving) we were left sitting on the beach while he was very attentive to a group of university students who were on a course there. We waited and waited patiently for our dive which we eventually had in the very shallow area immediately next to the beach.The fins we were given were the wrong size and they did not have any more for us . The BCD jackets were also the wrong size and again we were told sorry but that they did not have our size ( small!) We had a very long wait again for the 2nd of our 2 dives that day, which was again in the shallow area, right next to the beach. The next day we were hoping to be taken out into deeper waters. On our 1st dive that day after an extremely long wait we did go out on the boat to a deeper area . This was with the other university group so we had to stay on the boat, just the two of us, whilst the students did their dive first. This dive was with Alex this time and was good. However, again the BCD did not fit properly and this spoiled the dive slightly. Our last dive was a joke. Again it was in the shallow beach area and it was supposed to be compass training. However, we did no compass work at all and just swam about for 15 minutes and that was our final dive. We were very disappointed as we had travelled from England to do our course and expected more to be honest. We had no photos taken at all and when he asked he said sorry he had no camera with him. We had no extra dive as the current was too strong! which is strange because others were still diving and we had been told this dive was in a sheltered area good for beginners. We also were given no free log books .When we mentioned that we were a bit disappointed with 3 of our very shallow beach dives and felt we should have had deeper dives as this was was an open water course, he said that technically the beach area was in open water! I believe the 3 beach dives were about 6 meters at their deepest and the boat dive 12 meters at the deepest. Also they took ages to send our details to Padi. Overall our experience was very poor and he was more interested in giving the university students a good time. We spent hours just sitting on the beach waiting for him to find a little time for us!!
I know others having given good ratings for this company,but I felt that others should be aware that not all people have had a good experience with Dive Sicily.
