Don't let seasickness ruin your experience!

Some people, often without knowing it, might suffer from nausea and discomfort caused by the motion of the boat. If you think you may have this condition, research if you can take tablets for seasickness to make the best of your experience.

    Highly Recommended!

    I've been diving for 15 years... with dry suits in the San Juan Islands of Washington State to Tee shirts in Bonaire and Roatan, The GBR, The Coral Sea and Poor Knights Island, NZ. My dive with DIve Master Vittoria on the Banco Santa Croce site was a Top Three Dive for me. With Tuna feeding on schools of sardines back dropped to beautiful Mediterranean coral... this dive had it all. The Professional, experienced and fun shore crew at Punta Campanella Diving Center made this a perfect day.
