What to see

The diving off Sicily may not yield many sightings of large pelagic marine species unless you head further south to Lampedusa where you could spot some oceanic shark species, sea turtles, dolphins and a rare manta ray. Overfishing is a prevalent problem in the Mediterranean but divers can still have an enjoyable time especially with the interesting seascapes and shipwrecks.

At most dive sites, moray and conger eels are often seen poking out of crevices together with lobster and shrimp. Amongst beds and walls of gorgonian sea fans and sponges, find groupers, sea bream, clouds of anthias and also octopus. Closer to the reefs, look for critters like colorful nudibranch, flying gunards and crabs.

Dive Center

Highlights

  • Waste no time getting underwater with Evasioni Blu Diving; all the dive sites are mere minutes from the port of Ustica
  • Vibrant orange polyps, deep red gorgonians, pastel pink hermit shells and neon purple nudibranchs - you'll be surprised with the rainbow of colors beneath the waves
  • Find yourself floating inside a cloud of barracuda or investigating what goes on beneath atmospheric rocky overhangs and caverns
  • This green dive center is a champion of Project AWARE values, making it a top choice for environmentally-minded divers

Description

Evasioni Blu Diving Ustica is strategically located at "Cala Santa Maria", the charming fishermen's harbour of Ustica, just a few steps away from our diving boat. The village center of Ustica island and the majority of the accommodations, bars and restaurants it offers are within walking distance from our dive center.  

The dive center is fully equipped with bathroom and shower, changing room, personal equipment storage space, multimedia classroom, rinsing zone and a terrace with comfortable relax zone.

Beneath the waves you can admire vibrant orange polyps, hermit crabs and alien-like nudibranchs of all shapes and colors. In the deeper blue, you can look forward to coral walls, wrecks and schools of bream and barracuda. 

Every dive is just a few minutes' navigation away from the port of Ustica. So sit back, relax and get ready to dive! During your surface interval, expect refreshing drinks and Sicilian snacks.
