I went to Sicily last April and wanted to dive in different spots around the island. While in Ortigia (Syracuse), I called Capo Murro to get some information about them and reserved one dive for the next day. It was a great experience from beginning to end! I even had the fortune (the privilege, really :o) ) to be the first client to use their new shuttle service: they offer free transfer from Ortigia to the diving center in Ognina, which was really convenient for me. After around 30 minutes we arrived at the diving center where Fabio immediately took care of me and provided me with all the gear I needed, all in an excellent condition by the way (the BCD was even new). Once on the boat, Linda, the instructor went through the geography of the diving site, the different sealife we could see and of course all the safety checks. The dive itself was great, the different spots they have are inside a protected area (which they are really keen on preserving), so once underwater it is not crowed at all and there is a lot of life to observe. Once back at the center they have everything you need to rinse off the equipment and take a shower. I really recommend Capo Murro, not only for the dives but also for the people there, very friendly and professional. So, if you are in Syracuse or if you are staying in Ortigia (beautiful place by the way) and you want to dive there, be sure to contact Capo Murro, you won't regret it!

A morning out diving with the Capo Murro diving centre when we visited Modica after an abandoned trip on the north of Sicily. Haven’t open water dived for a few years and effectively had a personal guided trip with one of their instructors Andrea who was very courteous and spoke excellent English. Onshore facility was tidy with good standard equipment with emergency equipment on the rib. Safety briefing and checks were also good. Weather wasn’t great which meant we were limited to one dive, but I had a good time and would certainly recommend and use them again. Only niggles were the lack of response to my initial enquiry email which meant I felt I was chasing them to take my business and in finding the place as the map on the website was not usable on my phone.

My wife and I did our homework into various dive centres and this seemed one of the best, although we never received any response to our emails ... however, we popped in to discuss as we were passing by from a trip to Syracuse. Not the easiest to find but we persevered and asked a couple of locals so eventually got there! We both only qualified the year before so were quite nervous about doing our first recreational dive, but we were assured that we would be ok and we would be accompanied by an instructor and there would be no hurry. We then booked a date in advance and turned up for the early morning dive... When we arrived for the drive it was very busy with a large group, but eventually we managed to find someone who spoke English - they were then so incredibly helpful with hiring equipment, dealing with all we needed and calming our nerves! We only wanted to dive a few meters to get used to it but were very wary of holding up the rest of the group. However, we were presented to an amazing dive instructor lady who said she was coming out with us specifically. She spoke perfect English and was so reassuring, helping with every aspect. The dive was beautiful and exactly what we were after and wanted, and without hindering the rest of the group as the three of us were diving on our own from the main boat. We would thoroughly recommend, good equipment, excellent customer service and support which really reassured us to continue with diving while thoroughly enjoying it. So huge thanks to Capo Murro Diving Center and our fabulous instructor!

By far the best equipment I've ever seen in a diving centre. All the regulators were brand new and all the BCDs were technical BCDs. I've seen so many Diving C. with wetsuits in poor conditions, this is definitely different, a very enjoyable dive and a fun staff. Possibly the italian staff getting to friendly with my girlfriend, but they are way to chatty and friendly, what else should you expect ;-) ? I have to admit, we did have a briefing on the boat about our dive and where we were going but no safety information about the oxygen tank and/or which signals the onboard staff would have used to draw our attention and call us back. The latter can definitely be improved. A good experience overall!
