Lampedusa

Lampedusa Island is the southernmost point of Italy. Because of its remote location, it is perfect for a quieter getaway and you are more likely to encounter large pelagic marine life while enjoying some great critter finds.    

 

Malta

The Maltese Islands' clear blue Mediterranean Sea is ideal for scuba diving. All three Islands offer some unique diving experiences with an abundance of reefs, caves and wrecks that make diving here some of the most interesting in the Mediterranean.

The calmness and clarity of the sea makes for excellent visibility whilst the risk of encountering dangerous fish is extremely low, creating the ultimate conditions for first time divers and beginners. For the more experienced divers, there are plenty of challenging dives to choose from.

 

Ustica

Located 60km north of Palermo the Marine Reserve of Ustica is home to incredible natural gems right below the water’s surface.

The seabed is made of black lava stone, and is a diverse underwater beauty that reveals itself via exploration of up to 30 different dive sites, most of which are for divers of all levels.

Another highlight of Ustica Island is the numerous caves that exist within the seaward plunging cliffs of the island, such as Grotta Verde, Grotta Azzurra and Grotta dell’Orro. The grand variety of volcanic rocks spread out around of the island are also interesting feature not to be missed. For wreck diving enthusiasts there are several World War II wrecks waiting to be explored near to Palermo, such as the wreck of the Secca della Colombara.
