“Awesome experience: diving with the whole family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

We did this amazing 'thing' on the anniversary of our daughter. It became a birthday she (and we) will never forget. None of us had any previous diving experience, but this wasn't any problem. We were welcomed by a staff of three, so with the four of us, that was almost a one to one guidance. The boattrip in itself was already very nice (wild see, good music and stories about the surroundings). We saw some caves before entering the diving spot. There we got clear instructions before getting into the wet suits (which was a funny experience). Once in the water, we felt completely at ease guided by the Sicilian but perfectly English speaking Carmelo and Peppe and the Dutch Silla. They even had a surprise act celebrating the birthday of our daughter. We had a great time and we can recommend this to anyone, who is in for some nice adventure. Grazie e ciao.

“Excellent service and great equipment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

I'd love to express my thanks and gratitude to the team of Sea Spirit Diving Centre. They taught us Scuba diving and did amazing job in explaining a lot of technical details to us, everyone was very attentive and careful. Once they realized we can dive ourselves, they did give us some freedom to enjoy the waters. With our friends who did not have any experience at all, they carried a very professional briefing and were very supportive.
The organization and equipment was super good, they also cut us some fruits and let us enjoy some swimming and snorkeling in a cozy bay nearby our diving place.
So definitely 5 stars.

“Truly excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

My sister booked some dives with Sea Spirit as part of a surprise birthday package for me. They were excellent from day one, asking her all the right questions so that when I arrived in Giardini Naxos, everything was ready. Service starts with a pick up from the hotel then straight to the boat. All the gear is ready and you can suit up at leisure on the trip out to the many dive sites. The tourist sites of Taormina and Isola Bella look totally different from the sea; certainly a view you won't get anywhere else.

The dives are pretty, rather than spectacular, but it was great to see the Greek columns (shafts) and a triangular piece that looks as though it would span two columns. Visibility at depth wasn't great but it was still possible to pick out octopus, lobster, moray eels etc. The best visibility is in the chimneys and swim-throughs which are a delight. Worth taking a torch for the many caves, too.

The dive leaders are excellent: calm, experienced and helpful. The hospitality is also top notch: melon, water and fruit juice between dives and a warming glass of Mandorla to finish. I would recommend this company to anyone and will certainly use them if I return to the area.
