The team is super nice and well organised, easy-going and professional. They know the dive sites really well and know how to help you looking for interesting marine life. I did my Advanced Open Water with Alina and our five dives together were perfect: super clear communication, solid briefings, and relaxed atmosphere underwater. I did other dives (including my refresher) with Carmelo Sr, Carmelo Jr, and Amy, they all really took the time to give me advice and helped me finding very interesting animals.

The overall diving area spans over several types of habitats, from sandy bottoms with seagrass patches to beautiful swim-throughs and canyons, each hosting different animals and algae. If you know what to look for, life here is really stunning. We saw plenty of beautiful Mediterranean parrotfishes, painted combers, several species of sea breams, clouds of damselfishes, giant weevers, groupers, and also two beautiful flying gurnards.
What fascinated me the most was, however, the amount and diversity of the invertebrates: sea stars, “false corals”, sea hares, dotted/leopard sea slugs, octopuses, sea cucumbers, the impressive Pinna nobilis, and orange and yellow cup corals lining the swim-troughs’ walls. Of course there were many more, one more reason to return and dive again with this knowledgeable, friendly, and professional team. Highly recommended.

Ciao Chiara!

We are so happy you enjoyed yourself and it was a pleasure having you on board. Alina loved experiencing the Advanced Open Water Course with you, commenting on how dedicated you were to learning and to keep improving on your skills. We are passionate about advancing your diving skills and the Advanced Open Water Course is perfect for this! It really allows you to sharpen in areas you feel you need work on and to fine tune your skills. With its many adventure dives to choose from, you can really decide what part of diving fits you, whether it be navigation or photography. There are such a wide array of skills to be learned in diving that it is impossible to stop learning.

We really hope to hear from you soon and have you back for some more adventures under the sea!

Best wishes,

From the Sea Spirit Team!

I had a great day with Sea Spirit Diving Resort! Even though we could not get to the blue cave due to a strong current, we saw a lot of marine life during our first dive. The canyons south of Isola Bella were by far the best part of the second dive. Alina, our dive master, always gave plenty of briefing before and after. The entire crew was nice to chat with and always available to help and answer my questions. The equipment was in good shape and fruit, biscuits and drinks were provided between the dives. I will certainly dive again with Sea Spirit!

My 12 year old daughter had a wonderful time as a first time diver enjoying the local scenery with Alina. A fantastic experience for a novice. I suspect that she will want to take further training in the future.

We took our two children, 9 and 10, on this snorkling excursion and we couldn't have had a better experience! Luca was so amazing with the kids! Showing them, with his expert eye, all of the wonders below; which they never would have spotted without his help. It made the experience so full for them. We found the entire crew to be helpful, friendly, educated and caring. I highly recommend this company!
