We dove with Silvana and Salvo's Dive Centre for 3 days doing 6 dives.

From the very beginning as we contacted them to book before we arrived in Favignana the lovely Silvana was very helpful and gave us lots of options when to dive and booked us in no problem she is very friendly and spoke English no problem but I chose to practice my Italian and she laughed but understood me!

Their Dive Centre is ideally located right on a little peninsula and in a quaint little harbor where their Dive Boat and Dinghy / Rib are also moored so its so easy to go do the dives by boat. Their dive center is well equipped and Salvo always happy to help he even came up with a replacement pressure gouge when mine started leaking too and for free to use it!! In other words they and we became great friends over the 3 days we spent diving with them.

Their Instructors and Dive Master and in particular Emilio and Govanna are all very nice and helpful and very experienced deep divers too ;) Their dive sites like Toro reef and Cala Fondale are amazing reefs and walls full of lobsters and stingrays and Barracudas even a large Spanish Dancer made an appearance too!!

They kept our dive gear overnight and their washing areas are ample for all divers to do pre and post preparations. Their prices are very good too.

Always smiling and happy to help and suggest dive sites according to our experience and they delivered a fun and safe and easy time scuba diving for us in a family atmosphere :) I'm a PADI Staff and Tec Deep Instructor, TDI and SSI Instructor too but my partner and her daughter are only Rescue Divers and we can totally recommend Silvana and Salvo's Posidonia Blu Diving Centre whether you are experienced or just a beginner.

Thank you for a lovely time diving with you and we will be back for sure :) Grazzie mille Silvana e Salvo <3 xx

I called from the airport half awake, under slept, and Silvana totally understood my English. We had three days of diving scheduled in no time, including a refresher that Emiliano did in English and Italian. Their gear rentals were great and we had no issues with any of it, even their mask sealed against my thick mustache. Crew and dive master were professional and helpful, I guess that’s why Montalbano calls their crew for help sometimes. But seriously if you want a great experience either beginner that’s freaking out to submerge or an experienced diver, look no further. They work like a family and take care of their clients. We saw plenty of amazing sea creatures during the dives, and I’ll most certainly be back!

We found Posidonia Blu Diving Center via TripAdvisor recommendations while planning our family trip to Favignana, and we were not disappointed!
Originally, we booked one dive, but our teenage kids loved the experience so much, they decided to take a course.
Everything worked just perfectly: beautiful turquoise sea, lovely weather, practical location, and not least important, relaxed and friendly yet highly professional and well'organised environment.
Our Italian skills unfortunately almost non-existent, and those stuff members who could not speak English were actually making an effort to communicate with us, while there were several staff members who spoke fluent English, French, Spanish, etc.
Special thanks to Massimo, Silvana and fantastic Sofi for taking us successfully through the PADI course and making our holidays fun!

This quaint dive shop was recommended to us by our host at the b&b where we stayed in favignana. My two friends and I had heard about the great diving sites in the area and were eager to check them out. None of us are certified, and our levels of Italian varied.
Posidonia is easily reachable by bicycle or car. When we arrived Salvatore, his lovely wife and the hilarious boat driver Serafino welcomed us warmly. I was kindly provided with a wet suit and all the gear I would need for the dive.
Our instructor was very attentive and patient with us. He gave us each a mini-lesson beforehand and made sure we understood thoroughly. We each went separately and he held our hand nearly the entire time underwater and made an effort to show us all he beautiful wildlife, pointing out barracuda and octopus and hard-to-see animals with a flashlight. The site was stunningly beautiful.

After the dive he offered me a coffee and biscuit and pulled out one of his reference books. He patiently went over each plant and creature I saw, making sure I understood all the terms.

I couldn't give you a single complaint about this experience if I wanted to- they were extremely professional, attentive and friendly. I dove previously with club med this year, and I can honestly posidonia is 100% more professional and organized.

I would recommend this place to anyone experience or non-experienced in scuba diving. You will not regret it!!!!!

Grazie ancora per la bellissima esperienza! Per noi è stato un gran piacere conoscervi e non vediamo l'ora di tornare!

After one week sailing arround Sicily, we spend one week more on this wonderful island. lucky me, silvana is grown up in switzerland and we spoke (of course) in our home-language. for her husband salvo (owner and dive-guide of the dive-base) must it sound strange :-)

perfect equipement, perfect organisated dives and very sympathic dive-guide's. clear water, very nice beaches and of course the italian food we wan't missed. to spend the time @ favignana, i recommend to dive with posidonia-blu....by the way: silvana and silvo also offers some nice rooms to rent.
i come back this year for one week diving...relaxing...and meet silvana & salvo again.

I walked in without having scuba dived before and not speaking any Italian and walked out a week later with my advanced PADI Open Water certification, some underwater memories I will never forget and some new friends. Highly recommend Posidonia to anyone looking to scuba dive in beautiful Favignana.

My partner and I lived on the island for a week and made ​​contact with the diving center. They helped us with a very good living the last days and we began our advanced course with them. Massimo was our instructor, a wonderful person and diver! The whole team was friendly and helpful. They are serious, helpful and very good teachers. The water is crystal clear and you will get to experience several of cool dives! We could not be more pleased, recommend everyone visit this divning center! /// Robin and Jonna from Sweden.
