Owner description: Capo Galera is a professional diving center, located near Alghero, but nevertheless far away from everything, in a white villa on the cliff. A unique place where you can live the sea as nowhere else. Even if the highlights of the area are the countless underwater caves and caverns of The Protected Marine Area of Capo Caccia, be prepared to be amazed from the beauty of the Mediterranean marine life at its best! And for those who do not dive yet, there's no better place to take your first breath underwater!

“Overall one of the best dive centres...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

In a dive centre we're normally looking for two essential things and not all dive centers achieve them....!

A)- An approach to safety and a professionalism in relation to equipment, the guides etc that you can rely on.
b) A relaxed atmosphere on the boats and around the dive centre.

We spent a week at Capo Galera in October - and this place scores very highly on both of these. In addition to this it has a couple of features that means it really stands out:

1 - The opportunity it provides for cavern and cave diving. One of the dives - the "Fantasme" (ghost cave) is up there in the once in a lifetime experience.
2 - A superb location, overlooking the bay - as you can on the website..
3 - Great Food - and great chefs!! - and comfortable accommodation options.

Tips if you're going there..

Be sure to bring a good torch - a lot of caves to be explored!

It's a bit of an expensive taxi ride from Alghero, - so see if you can share taxis or explore the option of hiring a car.

Do go visit Alghero - seafront battlement structures - and plenty of places to eat/drink coffee etc.

I've dived quite a bit in various locations and this place and Gaddo & Fede and colleagues in the centre are amongst the best - so I recommend it. Liam
