The weather was not suitable for diving so I went on the half day snorkelling trip. The organisation and timing was a bit haphazard but we all got started and off not too late. The boat used is a zodiac type which has minimal shade cover and when the wind blows too much this has to be taken in (so... More

I did two dives with Cetaria in Zingaro National Park. I booked dives via email and arrived to Castelammare del Golfo port. Cetaria has a small shack (soft-drinks, coffee and toilet, but no shower) by the port. Its a bit difficult to find but they will send you a map. There were no briefings nor trying rental equipment (quality was... More

My daugther and I did one dive last week. My wife and other daugther snorkled. Having dived all over the world this is the least informative and least prepared. Staff are nice but do not focus on safety. Equipment is old, meters do not work, masks are horrible and better ones can be bought from beach booths/salesmen. We did one... More

Myself, husband and 3 children all went on the snorkelling boat trip to zingaro. The boat was comfortable and stopped off at 3 different locations for snorkelling. After each swim we were given fresh fruit, and either water or ice cold white wine. We all had a really great time, especxially on the return part of the trip when the... More

Well, my subject says it all. I can only add that if you are in Scopello it is really worth to take a boat trip with Cetariaas they are friendly, welcoming and professional. The trip departs from the famous Tonnara di Scopello, and during the boat tour there are many occasions for a plunge in the crystal clear water, where... More

I expected a bigger boat but after all it was a great day. The captain brought us to the reservation where we were able to dive. On board we could enjoy fresh fruit, water and wine.

Vittorio and his team were amazing! We were a mixed group of certified divers, kids planning to get certified, and others too young or too old that just wanted to snorkel. Every one of us got personalized service. After spending a bunch of time getting organized, fitted for wetsuits and the like, we went out to the boat. The crew... More

It was first time for me to try diving and I felt nervous. However, the instructor was calm and professional which was very helpful overcoming the weird feeling of breathing under water. We meat in the office and tried out equipment and headed to the diving beach, located at some castle with a amazing view. We were there in the... More
