If you’re looking for a professional and fun divingcenter, Nautilus is the place to be! Stephanie and Vinny are kind and organised and make sure everything runs smoothly. Stephanie arranged our accommodation as well, which was very nice, tidy and equipped. Such a lovely garden, with a lovely lemon tree! Vinny drives you to the best places to dive and makes sure there’s hot tea and cookies when you come up and back to the boat. Surface interval is definitely fun that way; relax and think back on your dive! The guides are brilliant; they show you everything there is to see and there’s always time for a chat and a laugh. Meanwhile they make sure your equipment is set up and taken care of. Thanks to everyone at Nautilus for a wonderful time!

Great relaxed diving trip. The diving is well organised with the team sorting everything for you. The boat is great to dive from and in excellent condition. The instructors are flexible matching air consumption to dive length. My daughter and wife had not dived for 3 years due to Covid and they made to feel comfortable. Well located in the centre of town. Thanks to alll

Absolutely perfect for our first bubbles as scuba divers. The whole team is welcoming, caring, and dynamic They managed to perfectly adapt to our needs - including those of the children, who could not all dive to the same depth. The center is ideally located, halfway between a small and quiet beach for protected environment sessions, and the port where the center's boats will drive you in Maddalena archipelago for deeper dives. A big thank you to the whole team.

Just finished an excellent dive experience with Nautilus Diving Centre in Palau, on the beautiful island of Sardinia. The pre-trip organisation was perfect : Stephanie was very responsive and proposed a great programme for our family, answering my many questions along the way ;-) We had two (adult) qualified divers needing a refresher, plus two young teens keen to do their Open Water qualification. She put together a programme that allowed us to dive together throughout, which was great. Our OW instructor was Brittany, and she was brilliant with the boys (aged 11 and 14): funny, well organised and rigorous with safety at all times. They had a great time learning with her and I was particularly impressed that it was just them in the class with her. My husband and I did our refresher with Angus: cheers mate! All of our OW dives were done from the zodiac rather than the bigger dive boat, which was fine and a fun trip out each time. The service really is 5-star: all our equipment was taken care of before and after each dive, so we just had to give it a final check. No lugging tanks / weights / suits around in the hot sun! The diving itself was excellent for the Mediterranean: good visibility, gentle current, plenty of marine life to explore and observe. One of the sites was quite busy (to be expected in August I guess) but the second one was quieter. Overall: 5-star service from a great team. Highly recommended.

Fantastic dive centre, highly recommended for any visitor to Palau and the Maddalena Islands! Very professional, very good equipment to hire and very good guides. We loved our time here, and were impressed with the quality of the diving. You could tell it was a protected area with the seagrass meadows and numerous fish! Thank you Nautilus crew!
