Elena`s and her staff’s knowledge of San Pietro`s dive sites are invaluable. The Island has 29 different sites, and depending on the weather; they`ll know the best dive on any given day. In the summer months, the sea temperatures remain consistent between 19 and 25 Degrees Celsius, making Isola Di San Pietro one of the best diving destinations in the Mediterranean.
With several wrecks dotted around the Island, and a vast array of caves and caverns just waiting to be explored, the Island’s home to morays, Slipper lobsters, octopus, red coral, wreckfish, bream, conger eels, stonefish, barracudas, crabs, lots of nudibranchs and large schools of groupers. The area features pristine waters and fantastic visibility and interesting swim-throughs with enormous granite rocks, wrecks, caves, and overhangs.
Why I Love San Pietro’s Dive Centre & The Dive Sites
I’m a PADI dive instructor and have been diving for over twenty years. During those years, I’ve been lucky enough to live, work, and dive in numerous parts of the world. The Indio Pacific, Indian Ocean, Atlantic Ocean, Red Sea, Multiple Gulfs, and of course, the Mediterranean.
I’ve seen many beautiful locations and met many wonderful people, I’ve also seen how many of the world’s dive sites and the experiences provided by the dive centers have changed during that time, and unfortunately! It’s not always a change for the good. Overpopulated dives by commercially-run dive centers, inadequate training and most disturbing, damage to the environment caused by the actual divers themselves.
The Island has only one dive center. Owned and ran by the very friendly and professional Elen. Sincerely, I honestly believe that you will not find a more welcoming and enthusiastic dive instructor anywhere. They limit the numbers on dives to only five divers! You’ll have the dive sites to yourselves!! No decent line queues or overpopulated dive sites here. It all adds to that personal touch and leaves you with the feeling that the dive is all about you and your dive buddies.
