I was visiting an old friend in the Region. She is fascinated about scubadiving and insisted me, to come with her to il faro diving und try the first immersion - I come from the mountains, so water isn´t my element and I was a bit nervous -. The immersion was awesome and I felt great. I understand why my friend is loving this. Mario is a kind of "fish" and the staff were great. I recommend you definitely this school, not only because of the wonderful location, also because of the people working there. Great Job and Thanks to Eve, Fede, Crristina, Matti and Mario for this!

Extremely disappointing, even more so if compared to similar boat tours done previously. The tour is done in a very small boat which is driven fast so that you can barely enjoy the view. The equipment included in the very high price was mostly broken or damaged and we thus couldn’t use it all once on the tour. The personnel was really unfriendly and rude to us all, as if our presence was bothering them. Both the driver and guide were mostly taking on the phone or between each other, not to us, and they were never explaining us what we were seeing, where we were stopping or heading to, as you would imagine on those tours. Finally, the stops were only two and even if not too short, it still makes no sense to stop only twice on such a long tour. To sum up, poorly organised and badly carried out. Just to compare, we had just gone on a similar (with exact same length of 4 hours) snorkelling tour in Castellammare del Golfo. We paid 35€ euros (not 55 like here) each to see all the caves and beaches of Zingaro Reserve, stopping for 3 40-minute baths on top of this, and in the price there was even wine and fruit included! Definitely DO NOT recommend them at any point!

Response from 418mario, Proprietario at Il Faro Diving
Responded Aug 24, 2020
Thank you for your review, we appreciate it a lot. Our tour is well known and appreciated by our customers since 20 years as you can see by reading all of our previuos reviews. We clearly remember you and your family and we remember also that you destroyed a part of our boat worth 280€ and, for it, we didn't even asked for a refund. Our boat, that can accomodate up to 10 people, that day was exclusively reserved for you and your family according to the COVID - 19 legislation which state that only people belonging to the same family can stay together. The time spent in the water doing snorkelling was extended at each snorkelling point since a member of your family was unable to snorkel and , instead of, appreciating our professionalism intrying to teach him how to snorkel you wrote a review that has nothing to do with what we do since many years with passion. We thank you anyway for your imaginative advice.

We have been here for 10 days to scuba dive in this fantastic sicily-spot. Here you will find extremely professional people that will guide you though the whole experience. The center is clean, well equipped and extremely close to the boat that usually takes you to the diving spots. Mario is one of the most experienced and professional diver we have ever met across the world. He is going to take care of your dive-experience, guaranteeing safe and enjoyable dives. Il Faro also offers unique trips closeby by boat (Taormina, etc) and experiences like dolphin searches as well. The sea here is full of life and extremely scenic (basaltic rocks full of ravines) and it is really unique, extremely different from other places around the world and in Italy. Either if you are new to diving or and experienced person, this place cannot be missed! We will come back very soon!
