Having never dived before we happened upon the “baptism of the sea” offer from Bluforia. As absolute beginners this experience was everything you could ask for. Prior to diving we received an introductory lesson to diving explaining the basics and what to be aware of when diving. Following this we got our gear and went diving and it was truly a fantastic experience. Our instructors Marcelo and Mariona were incredible patient and insightful and eased any and all anxieties. We walked away from this experience eager to dive again. If you are even tempted by diving we highly highly recommend this experience and recommend BluForia. We are very excited to see our pictures! Thank you so much!!!!!

Great dive, shallow, but nice caverns and rocks formations to see. We were told life isn't really abundant in this region but were quit lucky finding quite a few nice examples: a ray, grouper e.g. Our guide Gabriele clearly knew what he was doing, so in all quite a great experience.

We completed our CCR training at Bluforia with Dani and Gabri really helping us to learn all aspects of the new equipment. They were extremely knowledgeable and we were able to do a lot of great dives with them during our course. They have top of the line equipment to rent and the guides are all really great. We've had such a good time with the whole gang throughout the course.

Definitely recommend to dive in the cavern or on the KT 12 wreck! Great experiences!

I got the chance to join bluforia for a cave dive and a wreck dive.
Since it had been some time since the last dive, I did a refresher dive the day before.
It was very well instructed, also catering for personal needs, in theory and in the water. As I sometimes have issues with pressure equalisation, the instructors made sure the dive sites are suitable and took plenty of time to go down and equalise, so I could safely dive.
I really felt in excellent hands, starting from the equipment to the instructions and information given to the quality and professionalism of the instructors.
Overall a great experience that I would repeat anytime!

All equipment is well maintained and of very high quality. We were totally impressed by the very professional, responsible and friendly staff there. We really felt very comfortable.
I cancelled the dive with another dive center a few days before, because I felt very stressed and pressured. In contrast, the dive instructors at Blueforia gave me a great feeling of security and didn't put me under any sort of pressure at all. The dives in the crystal clear water were therefore wonderful - many thanks to you, you guys are doing a great job!

We had too many (4) unexperienced divers with only 1 guide, which was a very bad decission from the management of Bluforia. There were 2 other groups consist of only 2 divers (who were all (very) experienced!!) with 1 guide. Totally unbalanced division of the groups. It ended up in the 2 (parents) of us needed to go back to the boat after feeling very uncomfortable and so failure of trying to descend in a relaxt way. As I was very uncomfortable, the guide stayed with me the first 10 minutes, while my husband (buddy) drift off and ended up descend and rise too quick which ended up in nosebleed, while our 2 young childeren descend and rise all by them selves the first 10 minutes. We needed to decide to let the guide go only with the 2 childeren, to let them have quality time at least. We payed for 4 peopel for 2 dives got a little refund of € 30, but 2 out of 4 didn't go seeing anything of the underwater area at all. They should have let us go diving with 2 guides so 2 divers with 1 guide as they knew we were all unexperienced in open water, but they didn't. My childeren had a nice time as they were at their first open water dive (after they passed their exams in Holland). This ofcourse is worth a lot for us, but we would definite choose another company who gives you the right number of guides to come along according to your experience.
It is a pitty because those guys are friendly and the equipment seems good enough.

Good Morning thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. I would like to share a few items missing for your review. On booking, we always ask if family groups would like to stay together which you were happy with so we gave you a private instructor, not a divemaster to give you the best experience, 4 people to one guide in the industry is actually seen as a comfortable level should everyone be at the level they claim to be. We always ask for inexperienced divers who have been out the water for some time to complete a refresh with us as we did find out through instructors chatting with you that it had been some time since you had been in the ocean and you had told us that you had completed a refresh in your home country a few weeks ago so were fully happy to go straight out on our boat dive which was planned for sites no deeper than 15M in the section we can take for Open Waters, You had a private instructor for the day only guiding your family while the other guides took the other guests. 4 Guests to one guide is very normal and 2 buddy teams we feel is a comfortable number as when good training is given then this is perfectly acceptable.. many centres actually operate at 6+ to a guide. On the boat, that day was one other group with 3 people who are all at an advanced level so wanted to go deeper, and an instructor completing an advanced open water course with 2 guests. At the level of open water, we expect divers who have been refreshed to be able to descend down a line in perfect visibility but sadly we feel this is something that was not practised on your refresh, had you let us know your lack of comfort with descents we would never allow you to opt-in for a boat dive but we can only go off what we are told which is that a refresh was done recently and the family wanted to dive together on a side suitable for Open Water Divers. We did offer a shallow shore dive in the afternoon which was refused and the refund was taken. We gave the refund as we did feel sorry that you hadn't received good training during your refresh but this isn't something we do commonly as with all dive centres you are paying for your space on the boat for the day and if you choose to miss dives then that is your choice. We do hope you get back in the water soon and I do feel in future it is best, to be honest with the dive centre about your level and take a shore dive to build your confidence as offered. All the best Team Bluforia

Great dive spot between fishes, wreck, caves (or tunnels) and others!! Of course water is clear and warm!! Crew is really professional yet easy going so the experience is really fun and safe! Boat super easy to dive from. The KT-12 dive really worth it, massive wreck in crystal clear water…you see it from 20m. Recommend the dive Center, the dive site and the area in general…you can plan several days between beaches, boat rental and dives to adjust with weather.

Finally, after it was not possible for a long time, we were able to travel to Cala Gonone to the Bluforia dive center.
A great, family atmosphere awaits us as soon as we arrive. It was like coming home.
We were able to do a few dives, from leisurely to challenging. Always with a guide for a small group.
Many thanks to all employees for the pleasant days we were allowed to spend there.
We miss it and will be back.
