It was our worse dive experience ever (the four of us). This was mainly because, on the phone we were told that we were going north, close to Portoferraio for a beautiful dive. However, after only being on the boat for 5 minutes we were told that we would lay anchor and dive in Procchio itself. This was a very... More

Great experience for my boy who joined family's divers! Professional guide and perfect equipment in the right location. Hermitage hotel scuba diving was the right place to dive. Don't forget the coastal track to the west hidden seaside just above the diving center. Instead the Procchio diving was not so orfanized at a first glance. Enjoy.

Wrote to several dive clubs on Elba and Riccardo is the guy who got back the quickest. He made everything easy from A-Z working me into a multi-level group without a hitch. Definitely the clud to dive with on this gorgeous island.

Ricardo and team were very very helpful. They picked us up from the hotel for the dive, gave us extra layers of scuba gear and helped us acclimatise to the cold conditions. Given the weather conditions, few of us decided to cancel our second dive and the team was professional not to charge us (despite our promise of 2 dives).... More

As we had only two nights on Elba, I decided to stay at Airone Hotel which Riccardo arranged as well. This hotel is next to Diving in Elba shop at Portoferraio. Did two dives with Fabio and... More

I arrived in Elba via a Windsurf Cruise ship for 8 hrs. I had arranged with Riccardo, the dive shop owner, to have someone pick me up, which they did in a timely manner and drove me 5 min to the dive shop across the bay. Upon arriving at the dive shop next to a upscale hotel motel, I met... More
