Half day excursion with a try-out dive
Have you ever been fascinated watching documentaries of the colourful underwater world?
Have you always wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater?

At Zingaro Diving Center, we do understand that your first introduction to the underwater world has to be an unforgettable experience.
We ‘ll let you enjoy a lovely day on our boat. You will be individually assigned to a professional Instructor, who speaks your language. You will dive in the shallow, crystal clear waters of Sicily, under the direct and personal supervision of a professional.
A safe, exciting and unique experience!
