Reservé mi inmersión una semana antes del viaje cerrando una fecha y una hora a la que yo debía estar en la plaza de Mondello. En la reserva advertí que era Advance de PADI. El día que habíamos quedado no aparece nadie y los llamé por teléfono. Tras sucesivas llamadas apareció uno de los monitores 45 minutos después y me dice que hay un error porque se equivocaron y pensaron que yo iba a hacer un bautizo. Entonces me dicen que con ellos no puedo ir pero que al día siguiente me llevarían gratis a una reserva natural a hacer la inmersión por la tarde. Esa misma noche me mandan un mensaje por WhatsApp y me dicen que han mirado la meteorología y no va a haber visibilidad y que por lo tanto se suspende la inmersión o se pospone unos días. Ya no me podía quedar más días en Palermo así que les dije que buscaran otro destino para la inmersión y ya no supe más de ellos. Mi sorpresa fue cuando llamé a 3 clubs más de Palermo y me dicen que al día siguiente iban a ir a esa misma Reserva Marina y que si había visibilidad, pero ya no tenían plaza para mi. En resumen, esta gente, me dejó tirado, haciendo un día de más en Palermo por ellos y sin ni siquiera contestarme. Si no quieres sorpresas en tu viaje con el buceo NO CONTRATES CON ESTA EMPRESA. I booked my dive a week before the trip closing a date and an hour at which I should be in the Mondello square. On the reservation I noticed that it was Advance of PADI. The day we had no one appears and I called them on the phone. After successive calls one of the monitors appeared 45 minutes later and tells me that there is an error because they were wrong and thought that I was going to make a baptism. Then they tell me that I can't go with them but that the next day they would take me free to a nature reserve to do the afternoon dive. That same night they send me a message on WhatsApp and they tell me that they have looked at the weather and there will be no visibility and therefore the dive is suspended or postponed for a few days. I could no longer stay in Palermo so I told them to look for another destination for immersion and I didn't know any more of them. My surprise was when I called 3 more clubs in Palermo and they tell me that the next day they were going to go to that same Marine Reserve and if there was visibility, but they no longer had a place for me. In short, these people left me lying, doing an extra day in Palermo for them and without even answering. If you do not want surprises on your trip with diving, DO NOT CONTRACT WITH THIS COMPANY.

Me and my girlfriend had a fantastic time diving with Palermo diving trips on our last trip in Palermo. Excellent service on both the diving experiance and also at the time off the booking. We contacted them late on our trip and only had one day before our flight back to Sweden and they were able to squeeze us in the next day. Very good at English and they offered to drive us back to our hotell after the diving trip. We are looking forward to our next trip to Sicily and we will definitely book another trip with Palermo diving trips. :)

I had the unfortunate luck of having poor visibility and weather on my dive, so my dive in itself wasn’t fantastic. However, the guys were patient, friendly, and professionals. One of them speaks English, German, Italian and I believe a little French, too. They’re expensive for the south of Italy (€60 for one dive); in Puglia I paid €60 for 2 dives, had a supply of snacks and water and dived in from a boat. My only advice is to ensure you’re diving with great visibility, otherwise it defeats the purpose and dampens your mood. Oh! Also, you go into the water from the rocks, so ensure you’re prepped for that! I believe they sometimes use their boat, too? So discuss that with them beforehand. And if you’re using your own equipment or mixing between yours and theirs, ensure you discuss that with them before hand, too. (For instance my regulator couldn’t connect to their tank), so had to use theirs; which were at least in good condition. They were also the only diving center which replied and were reliable to book for the first dive! The rest either only offered classes or didn’t reply. However, they did go dark on me after trying to schedule a second dive with them - I’m sorry if I was a difficult diver.

Had a terrific day, thank you so much ! It was our first time but we felt very secure, Alessandro and Giuseppe showed us the ropes with patience. Clear water, colorful fishes, you won't regret it!

Me and my boyfriend wanted to go on a diving trip while visiting palermo and we could go directly one day after we contacted them. Communication was fast and smooth. They are very nice and helpful people. Everything was adjusted to our level of experience, since we are not experienced divers. Would recommend diving with diving trips palermo. We had a great day, Thank you! .
