The Island is located in Isola delle Femmine (Palermo-Italy), a small fishing village, characterized by a singular islet at the top of which is a 17th century tower. Since 1997 it has been an oriented nature reserve (R.N.O.) both terrestrial and marine managed by L.I.P.U. The seabed surrounding the islet is fascinating. During guided dives we will show you charming walls, shoals and caves.
The Island has been operating in the field of diving since 1994. The teaching methods followed are the P.A.D.I. and P.S.A. There are many diving points, suitable for all divers, easily reachable by diving boats. The center operates throughout the year and provides customers with complete diving equipment. It will be possible to deposit the material and use the center's maintenance and repair service.
The proposals of the The Diving Center Center proposals are:
You will have the opportunity to dive to observe the marvelous seabed surrounding the small islet of Isola delle Femmine, a nest preferred by a numerous and very cheerful seagull colony that will keep you company before and after diving, especially in the spring months.
The play of the rocks that give rise to these depths will allow us to plan splendid dives to the most varied depths, thus offering ourselves to the more experienced as well as beginners.
Already a few meters away you will have the opportunity to admire the fascinating shapes and the incredible ability of mimicry of the octopus, the lightning-fast dart of the silver bream, the swaying and wary suspicion of small morays, the numerous forms of hedgehogs and starfish, the extremely sensitive and very delicate spirographs.
If you have the pleasure of peering into the smallest one, you will not miss the appointment with the tiny and colorful nudibranchs. On the shallow depths instead you will have the opportunity to admire the majestic movements of our wonderful groupers, the safe progression of snapper and sea bream and if their curiosity assists us ... it may even happen to feel observed, look up and, not believing in your eyes, find yourself the object of attention of a whole bunch of very agile amberjacks.
Along the walls it will be easier to meet the helpless and timid lobsters and on the inhabited sandy bottoms we will take you to admire the haughty pinna nobilis. To notto speak of the marvelous fans of yellow and red gorgonians, of the elegant sea roses, of the falsocorallo and of the endless Posidonia meadows in which numerous other forms of life find refuge.
If you are a lover of photography, there will also be opportunities that will allow you to create suggestive color games and to capture those fleeting moments that will be offered to you by all the inhabitants of the seabed. We will take you to admire the most beautiful dive spots located at various depths and therefore for all tastes and the different and subjective experiencesacquired.
