Nice experience with lots of fish and nice people

The snorkeling was very nice. We were given an explanation about all the fish and were allowed to hold starfish. The rest of the group only did the diving but was friendly and pleasant. Because the water was somewhat cold (end of June, 20 degrees) we were given a wetsuit. Lorenzo showed us the way while snorkeling and was attentive throughout the activity. In the end the snorkeling itself took half an hour, but there was time to snorkel longer. The collection and delivery went well and was well organized despite the short time between booking and booking. The boat was covered with toilet and food and drinks.

Great experience with a super kind guide who has a lot of fun explaining everything. We went snorkeling and even saw dolphins on the boat! We were under water for at least 1,5 hour and saw beautiful fish and starfish. The water is extremely clear. I would certainly recommend this experience! Easy to reach from the centre of Catania. This was one of my best experiences during my holiday in Sicily.
