I’m a 52 year old lady who doesn’t swim but decided to try scuba diving for the first time. Everything was explained to me in full before we set out which put my mind at rest. I paid 80 euros for it and it was well worth it. Ciara was very patient with me throughout and I felt very safe with her throughout the dive. It was amazing, peaceful and beautiful down there. Throughly enjoyed the experience and would highly recommend them. Thank you so much 😀

We had 2 lovely dives with Bluforia into the Bel Torrente Cavern and on the Bel Torrente coast. Super to get a taste of cavern diving (you go up into air chambres inside the cave so its allowed without cavern training) with ‘just’ an Open Water cert. and on the Belt. coast the underwater landscape is beautiful. Mille grazie to all, for the cool experience!

Our experience with Bluforia was OK but not great. My wife and I did the "Bel Torrente Cavern" + "Coastline" dives one morning in early September. The price was 145 euro per person, inclusive of equipment rental.

The pros:
1) Friendly staff.
2) Very prompt. We arrived 10 minutes late for our 7:20am appointment time and everyone was already ready to go. Sorry for being late.
3) As someone who hasn't done any cave diving before, I felt that the Bel Torrente Cavern was a unique, interesting, and safe experience. I quite liked that "dive", which is mostly spent at the surface inside the caves.

The cons:
1) They provided me with a very cheap rental mask that kept fogging up no matter how much I spit in it. I usually dive with my own mask, but didn't bring own this trip because we hadn't planned to dive. The mask provided was the same cheap snorkeling mask that the local boat tours provide. Perhaps this is somewhat my fault for showing up 10 minutes late and not being able to select a better mask, but I just assumed that they would provide a reasonable quality mask when you're paying 145 euro for two dives. Luckily on the first dive our dive master happened to be carrying a spare of the same low quality-mask, so I was able to switch halfway for slightly better though still mediocre visibility. I requested a better mask for the second dive into the cavern and they found another, higher-quality mask on the boat that was broken so could not be adjusted, but luckily it fit well enough and was at least clear if not a bit uncomfortable.

2) The first dive site - the coastline right outside of Bel Torrente Cavern - wasn't particularly interesting. It was basically some shallow rocks without many fish. It felt like this site was chosen largely out of convenience, as the trip had two groups of four that wanted to dive Bel Torrente Cavern and one group needed to kill time while the other was inside. Perhaps that dive site is typical of what the area has to offer, but I have to imagine that there are more interesting dive sites along the coast that aren't just right outside of that cavern. For 145 euro I would have expected better dive site selection for the non-cavern dive, rather than just picking something that's simply logistically convenient.

3) Our dive master for the first dive, though nice, was not active in looking for cool critters. They spent most of the dive doing tricks with bubbles or swimming on their back to look up at the surface of the water. It felt as if they knew the dive site was not particularly interesting and were not putting effort into trying to make it more interesting by looking for and pointing out wildlife. We did ultimately see an octopus, which was the highlight of the first dive.

Professionally run technical and recreational dive shop with a family feel. A week of diving in Cala Gonone went without a hitch. The staff was friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. DANIELE, GABRIELE, LEWIS and the rest of the crew went above and beyond to ensure I had a safe and enjoyable experience.

Diving with the Bluforia team is really an amazing experience.
Every dive has been a pleasure, the dives to wreck KT12 and Nasello as well as the cave dives Galleria, Bel Torento and Brooklyn.
The equipment and preparation of the dives was excellent.
But the team and their enthousiasm, experience and friendliness is really outstanding.
Thanks for giving me an excellent holiday.

Joined Bluforia in two dives today, it was very nice that we could plan it so last minute. The cave dive was an amazing experience, never saw such caves before while diving. Everyone was super friendly, spoke perfect English, and everything was super organized. Would join them again!

You know you're off to a good start when the dive centre has a prime location with easy access from accommodation in lovely and hilly Cala Gonone.
Under the management of owner Daniele, the dive centre operates professionally and efficiently. The staff members are friendly, helpful, and create a welcoming atmosphere. The entire operation, including the dive centre and dive boat, is meticulously organised, tidy, and equipped with well maintained gear.
With experienced skippers at their disposal, they provided great support for diving the renowned caves accessible by sea. They made life easy and enjoyable with their land and boat based support for multi-stage and DPV cave courses. Daniele, in particular, has a wealth of technical and cave diving knowledge and experience and is happy to patiently and enthusiastically share advice and guidance.
Overall, Bluforia Dive Center offers a great diving experience, combining convenience, professionalism and expertise.

We had an amazing experience with Lewis at Bluforia in Cala Ganone. I cannot recommend him highly enough, he is the perfect person to teach diving. So professional, knowledgable, clear and patient. He is very responsible, will not cut corners, and you will feel very safe with him. He will give you honest feedback and be very encouraging. Hope we can train further with him!

Amazing diving school, my husband and I did two morning dives, the nearby cavern, though an additional expense was well worth it for that close to cave diving experience. The team at Bluforia also recommended a wreck dive of an old fishing vessel, plenty of sea life to see, the instructors (and dive master) were really friendly, talkative and helpful. A very multinational team, British, German, French and Italian (that we met), almost all visitors keen for a dive in the area will find the help they need at this diving school. Also, amazing convenience right on the sea front, driven to the boat which had our prepared diving kit ready to go. Having rented our fair share of diving kit over the years, this school is top for comfort and quality so far, we’d highly recommend.
