Some people, often without knowing it, suffer from the oscillating movements of the boat, this causes nausea and discomfort, ruining a magnificent experience. If you think you may have this condition ask your doctor if you can take tablets for seasickness.
Once you arrive at our diving centre located in the Marina Grande area of Sorrento, you will be welcomed by our staff who will assist you getting ready for your incredible days diving ahead. Learn about the dive locations, and if required you can hire the equipment from us. We will then set off by boat to the first dive site of the day.
Not too far from our dive site you will find one of Sorrento’s main attractions; the Baths of Regina Giovanna, an antique Roman Villa with a natural pool which is perfect for some interesting dives. Diving in this location is easy thanks to the minimal currents & good level of visibility. After we have finished here we will head over in the direction of Vico Equense, to the Santa Croce Bank.
The Santa Croce Bank is a dive site appreciated all over the world thanks to its spectacular beauty & biodiversity. Once below the waterline, divers can expect to see many different species of fish, amongst them grouper, snapper, dog fish & large eagle ray. Red sea fans up to 18 metres, axinelle sponges, and if you are really lucky, you can witness a game of catch between tuna and shoals of anchovies! In general, this dive offers an unforgettable experience, with breath-taking underwater scenery and the amazing marine wildlife on display. The tour will terminate back in Sorrento – after approx. 4 hours
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.
