Full description

Have you always wanted to experience what it feels like to breathe underwater, immersed in absolute silence broken only by your breath?

Then the Baptism of the Sea in Tormina is the activity for you.

Put on your mask, wetsuit and gav and let the instructor guide you down to a depth of 5 metres. You will not only experience the incredible sensation of breathing underwater during the30-minute dive, but you will also discover the underwater world and fascinating creatures such as the starfish in the protected Mazzarò Bay in Taormina!

What we will do

The meeting is at 15:00 at the Taomina dive centre, where we will be welcomed by the instructor, who will offer us coffee before giving us a briefing on the world of scuba diving.

During this first introductory part, we will learn the basics of diving. The instructor will explain what happens underwater and give us some information on how to compensate for pressure.

Afterwards, we will put on our wetsuits and walk towards the dive site, which is about 50 metres away. Here begins the best part of the experience: in total safety and in the company of the instructor, we will dive to a depth of 5 metres.

We will be able to put the notions we have learnt into practice and experience the unique sensation of breathing in the still silence of the depths of the protected Mazzarò Bay. In addition to these incredible emotions, we will also be able to admire the rich marine flora and fauna of this protected strip of Sicilian coastline, including schools of fish, seaweed and starfish. We will remain in the water for about 30 minutes.

Finally, we will return to the diving centre after an hour and a half in total.

Who it is aimed at

The activity is intended for everyone from the age of 8.

No previous experience or licence is required, but you must be in good physical condition and have no respiratory diseases. Scuba diving is not suitable for people suffering from asthma and claustrophobia.
