Spent a full day diving with the guys at Tavolara Diving at the beginning of July. The dive centre itself was very well organised and well equipped, with a nice courtyard area to prepare your equipment before and after the dives. It's conveniently located right beside the port in Porto San Paolo, which itself is a nice little town, and close to a large parking area. The staff were all very friendly, enthusiastic and professional, and the resident black labrador (Reb) was always up for a tickle.... I have a just basic level of italian, but before each dive our dive guide Andrea was very attentive to make sure that everything was clearly explained and well understood during the dive briefing. The dive sites around Tavolara were stunning with tonnes of marine life and interesting rock formations to navigate. I had intended to do just two dives that day but was easily convinced to stay on and do a third later that evening towards sunset. I'd happily recommend Tavolara Diving to anyone who is thinking about diving in the area.

I went to this diving school to learn how to dive and get a certificate. I was super happy with how welcoming and knowledgable teachers are.

In general whole crew had a very nice attitude and culture :) I recommend it as it helps on so many levels especially for beginners with zero previous knowlegde and a lot of fear. They helped me feel more secure and the exercies and the deep water dives went prefectly!

I highly recommend this school.

In addition the area is very calm and pleasant to spend time before and after the dive.

Tavolara Diving Center is on point, these folks know exactly what they are doing. Andrea and the team are professional and ready to show you the experience you are looking for. My wife and I did our Nitrox course and opened up the season at Secca de Papa, it was amazing! Hope to come back soon and complete the PSS Deep Diver 40M.

Cheers,
Samuel and Jamie

We had a great experience diving Tavolara Island last week. Our dive master, I believe his name was Filipe was fantastic. Super nice, fun guide. We had a great time and I would highly recommend Tavolara diving for a fun day under the water.

Loved the experience, no time wasted out on the water. All the dives have great results, from big grouper to moray eals and snapper, we saw it all. Diving around the marine reserve of tavolara and molars is spectacular landscapes, thousands of fish and some lovely corals. Great time all round!

Mi husband and I had not been diving for 8 years. When we arrived at the centre we were a bit rusty, but everyone made us feel very welcome and very safe from the first dive. All the staff members are very nice and very professional. They answer all the questions you have and they help you. I don’t need to describe the actual dive because I guess you already know that Sardegna’ sea is beautiful! We really enjoy the experience and I recommend heartily this diving center. You can start organising your trip remotely because they always answer to emails, fast, and that is a bonus.

We had a very nice time with the team from Tavolara Diving Center. Everyone is super nice and helpful. As a beginner diver I was very lucky to dive with diving instructors that took care of me and took their time to explain everything in detail.
The diving center offers dives at many different interesting dive spots so it never gets boring. We enjoyed our dives a lot.
We completed 6 dives in total. If we come back to Sardinia, we will definitely go back to Tavolara diving center for more beautiful dives with a friendly and professional team.

We had a great time here. We did 5 dives, the sites are beautiful, the visibility was amazing and we saw many beautiful creatures. The center is located close to the dock so it's very convenient.
The staff was extremely friendly, patient and comprehensive. It was a real pleasure and reassuring to dive with them. Thank you very much and see you hopefully soon!

I pass my Openwater in only 3 days thanks to Tavolara Diving. The team is really competent, attentive and hospital. Special comments for Stefano who makes himself available to explain me the diving theory and for Davide (Domina ;) ) who has been the best teacher you could wish for!
Thank you for this fantastic experience, see you soon!
