Roberto was very flexible and nice to us, we dived 1 h and we hadn't made any reservation, he waited for us to get cash at the end (he doesn't take paiement by card). Very calm, kind and funny instructor ! We won't forget !!

We spent a wonderful day with Giulia and Roberto, who took us for our first dive in the mouth of a crater opposite Pollara. They're really sweet and relaxed, yet extremely professional, which meant we could feel truly safe and have fun. As a bonus, they're really committed to protecting the biodiversity of the islands- we wish them the best for all their projects and highly recommend them!

Giulia and Roberto did a great job with our large group. The snorkeling and diving were great, and they were very gracious and accomodating

In July my boyfriend and I went several times scuba diving with Roberto, the owner of Muciara Diving Center, located at Santina Marina on Salina.

Roberto and his colleague Giulia, both Italians, are very friendly. They have been working together on Salina for years and thus know the Aeolian islands and locations for diving very well. Giulia, who has also studied marine biology, speaks excellent English and also Spanish. Roberto’s English may not be perfect but it is good and we did not have any difficulties to understand him. He also has a very good sense of humor. Roberto informed himself about the level of diving we had, our experience in diving and also asked us when we had last been diving. With Roberto one feels very safe. He takes time to explain where the dive will occur, what we may see, etc. After not having dived for 6 months, I felt beforehand a bit uneasy about a certain move. Roberto was there to explain again, repeat if necessary and added a couple of exercises under water. That all worked perfectly.

Since it was unusually windy for the season and the current strong, the sea did not allow us to go diving on Salina one morning. To make the dive possible, Roberto and Giulia changed the plans and took us by boat to the coast of Lipari where we had an excellent dive.

Roberto and Giulia take care to choose locations where everyone on board, independent of their diving level (e.g. beginners and experienced divers diving 50m deep) can have a sensational diving experience. Before coming to the Aeolian islands I had already heard that Salina was a wonderful place for diving.

The prices of Muciara are very good. We had forgotten to take something to eat with us. Giulia told us not to worry and made a delicious pasta for us, free of charge.

Muciara diving center was recommended to us by the owner of our hotel at Salina. He knew the place because his sons also went diving there.

You can find Roberto on his boat, carrying the inscription “Diving Boat", at the harbor of Santa Marina. If the boat does not happen to be there, you can also call Roberto on his cell phone. His cell phone number can be easily found on the internet.

We had great fun! I'd love to come again.
