I took the open water diver course at Sea Spirit dive shop. I have dived twice before but I have always been scared of water, so it took a lot of courage to sign up for the course. The registration was mostly done through whatsapp with Cilla and she was very flexible and patient during the whole process.

The first day of the course started at an olympic size pool and the day 2 was supposed to be at the sea. However, it took me longer to learn all the skills on the 1st day, and my instructor talked to Cilla, the manager so that I could have one more day of learning and practicing at the pool.

Michael, my instructor, was very thorough and made sure that I learned everything that were necessary at my own pace.

Other instructors and operator were also very encouraging and supportive (thanks Swan and Luziano!) I am so glad that I chose Sea Spirit!

Everyone at this place is so friendly and they really want you to have the best diving experience. I recommend Sea Spirit to anyone who is interested in diving or taking PADI course in Giardini Naxos and Taormina.

Sea Spirit is a banch of highly professional, funny and helpful people who will make your time in Taormina an amazing experience. Together with my boyfriend we took part in their daily programme - I was diving, he was snorkling. It was my first „fun dive” after making an OWD week before (in my homeland), so I was a bit scarred and had problems with a back roll into water, but the whole team was very supportive and help me to enjoy the dive. I highly recommend Sea Spirit to anyone who wants to dive near Taormina. And it is a great advantage that you can make a trip together with your non-diving friends as diving and snorkling trips are made from the same boat.

On July 10, 2022, I went diving with Seaspirit. The preparation procedure is quite easy because they send you a link to fill out all the information in advance, saving you time on the day itself.

The staff was helpful with fitting and making size recommendations, and the equipment they utilize is all new.

We headed to the diving location in Taormina, close to Isola Bella, after getting the gear adjusted. The instructor and I were the only divers that day, which was great for me.

On our two dives, we observed numerous little creatures, including fish, eels, sea stars, and even a small octopus.

We also looked into a few of the island's underwater caverns.which was fascinating and thrilling.
There were some snacks and drinks to enjoy in between, and after the dive.

Afterwards, we went back and cleaned the equipment. The day ended at the scheduled time.
I thought they were great and would definitely recommended them!

Sea Spirit is probably the most professional diving school of Sicily where Divemaster and Dive Instructor candidates from all over the world meet to prepare and pass their exams. Extremely talented, professional and nice dive instructors and perfect set up for training in a 50m pool next to exercises in the sea. Divers that “just” want to see the aquatic life of mainly Isola Bella Marine Park are also very well taken care of. Can’t wait to come back with my children for more diving. Highly recommended, I enjoyed every moment.

It was an amazing experience. The crew was very frendly and professional. Our guide was Amy. She was great. First she showed us some skills and than we explored the nice spots. Amy always made sure that everyone felt comfortable. I can just recommend it.

We did our „open water diver“ certification as a family with our 11 year old son. It was a really great experience. Sometimes I thought my son would quit (cause of the awful required mask skills), but our instructor, Amy, was so calm and confident, kind, positive, and radiated so much enthusiasm that she always captured him (and me). Even when things got tough.
We always felt super comfortable and safe with Amy. The whole team was very warm and welcoming.
The bays around Taormina are beautiful, we saw a lot above and under water. We will definitely be back!!!

The only thing I don't recommend is the mandatory OWD exercises in the pool in October. That was really too cold.

I had a great time over the last few days exploring the oceans surrounding Isola Bella. The oceans are super blue, and there are lots of great rock formations and marine life to see and enjoy.

The highlight of the trip would be the staff who were super knowledgeable, fun, and took the time to carefully explain and educate the group.

Amy made the trip super fun and was always very friendly and helpful. Swann was very patient in the pool when it came to practicing, and Filipi gave some really useful and practical tips in the ocean.

Would highly recommend and will definitely be back next year.

I went to Sea Spirit Diving Resort for my PADI IDC and it was an amazing experience. The organization is impeccable and the marine area is beautiful. The staff is available beyond measure and extremely united. I couldn't ask for anything better. I suggest this diving center for whatever your aspiration is, to discover scuba diving, to enjoy the seabed for pleasure diving and above all for courses!
