WHY FARO DIVING CENTER

WHY FARO DIVING CENTER?

FARO DIVING REPRESENTS EVERYTHING THAT A RECOVERY OR TECHNICAL SUBCONNECT MAY WISH.

SCUBA DIVING

Ionian sea: it’s impossible to find a better place than Mediterranean area. Thanks to our staff long experience, our strategic position in Stazzo and our nautical vehicles, Faro Diving center covers the stretch from Catania to Messina giving to our guest the greatest scuba diving in the Ionian sea.
And still, thanks to our deep knowledge of the area with 26 scuba diving points, two Protected Marine Areas and ten incredible wrecks, you will be spoiled for choice.
THE STAFF
Thanks to our professional guides that will lead you in diving excursions with a maximum of 6 people, you can enjoy the better scuba diving points.
In high season, our team is made up of 4/5 trainers and 3/4 Diving Masters. Our team is completed by a staff speaking different languages.

LOGISTICS

Our center works in two areas: Stazzo and Capomulini, both of them strategically located in order to cover the stretch from Catania to Messina.

  • Stazzo is a solution that overturns the concept of effort that diving generally involves and it will make your vacation more relaxing and pleasant.
  • Capomulini represents the extreme comfort in the choice of a 4 stars hotel, designed and created for the most demanding clients.
THE BOATS

Fast and safe techniques made up for the Mediterranean sea, designed for overturning diving as less hard as possible.
THE OPERATIVE CENTER
Faro Diving center provides incomparable solutions of comfort and functionality. When getting to Faro Diving you can directly transfer your diving equipment from your car to our center. Nautical vehicles are parked at the harbor in front of our center that also works as point of boarding/disembarkation, and still all the operations of packaging cylinders and rinsing equipment take place here. Showers for the guests are outside our center. For those who book continual dives we give the possibility to leave the diving equipment and the cylinders on board. Cylinders are carried on board through the external stairs of our boat while the staff rinses them by using our rinsing machines.

OUR FLEET
DESIGNED TO GIVE YOU THE BEST OF NAVIGATION!

Fast and safe methods suitable to our sea, designed to make diving as less hard as possible.

testimonials

Ho fatto un immersione con degli amici poco tempo fa, da ripetere assolutamente. Il diving è posizionato in un angolo di paradiso, super attrezzato, confortevole sia per i sub che per i non sub, Mario, il titolare, una persona eccezionale, disponibile e professionale. Consigliatissimo !

Vincenzo O

Location comoda in un contesto molto particolare (porto romano) ai piedi dell' Etna di cui si vede il cratere più alto. Cortesia, professionalità e disponibilità le principali caratteristiche di Mario titolare del diving e del suo team. Cercherò di tornare per fare un immersione

Glupa

Mario ed il suo staff fanno si che ogni immersione avvenga in massima sicurezza ma senza tralasciare il divertimento! Ti accompagnano in questa magnifica esperienza guidandoti con professionalità e aiutandoti ad osservare meglio la flora e la fauna mediterranea. Imperdibile anche l'escursione per avvistare i delfini al tramonto, un'esperienza davvero emozionante!
