I wanted to complete my PADI Open Water certification whilst we were overseas on honeymoon. Enter the Nike Dive Centre in Taormina - what a great bunch of people! Knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. I managed to complete my certification in 3 days without cutting corners (I was constantly checking that what I learnt from the videos & literature was being... More

Very friendly staff and easy dives in the Isola Bella Natural Reserve, i would say you come for the dive you stay for the atmosphere, Sicilian way. On the dive site experiences, i had quite some fun especially around the isola bella. I did it few times with different guides and each of them had their own way of doing... More

I am a diver of over 10 years and we visited Taormina on our honeymoon. My wife had dove a couple of times many years ago so little or no experience. The staff seemed very helpful and courteous (they, or at least one of the guides, is new as of early 2014). I explained I didn't have my PADI card... More

My boyfriend and I made a last minute trip to Sicily and, of course, had to visit Taormina. The town is spectacular. The beach is beautiful. The diving...meh. I had read about Nike Diving and with its convenient location, decided Why not? We hadn't planned on diving during this trip, so we came without anything- computers, log books, any idea... More

Warm and friendly dive centre on the beach of Isola Bella Natural Reserve. Franco and Corinne run one of the best organized centres I've ever dived with, and I've dived all over the world. The atmosphere is one of diving with friends. The staff is skilled, very polite and friendly and each and every one is a relaxed, capable dive... More

During a recent stay in Taormina (my first), I came across Nike Diving right alongside the very beautiful Isola Bella Natural Reserve. The atmosphere there was very welcoming and friendly, and I was greeted warmly by the owner upon arrival. He went through the various diving options they had with me, and I booked a 6-dive package (which I later... More

Nike Diving Center has a very convenient location in Taormina, as it's just down the cliff by cable car, uphill a short-ways, and then down the steps to the beach area. I'm rating Nike a C- because I feel they were somewhat dishonest. (They'd get a poor rating or a 'D' if it hadn't been for the friendliness of the... More

Having dived in many places around the world I have to say I really enjoyed my experience with Nike in Isola Bella. My guide Jan was experienced and very capable. Nice crew working for these guys overall and the equipment is good. Would recommend.

On a cruise this summer, we stopped for a day at Giardini Naxos, Sicily (near the town of Taormina). The waters of Sicily are so beautiful, my son (age 11) and niece (age 13) wanted to try and learn scuba diving. Nike Diving Center is a small, friendly dive center that offers a short resort course (1 or 2 hours)... More
