Diving Taormina

Explore diving Taormina

Characterised by its many swim-throughs and maze of rock formations, diving the east coast of Sicily brings you true exploration of the Mediterranean. 

The beauty of light rays shoot down from the surface reflecting off coloured sponges, starfish and Light bulb sea squirts! On your way round, keep your eyes peeled for octopus and moray eel hidden in their dens.

Having the best of both worlds, you also have the opportunity to experience a sandy landscape that houses a variety of life, from wide-eyed flounder and hidden sand crabs, to sea snakes and flying Gurnard!

You may even come across a Seahorse, hiding in the Sea grass or attached to a sheltered rock.

When to dive Taormina

The best period to visit Taormina sites are from the beginning of April until the end of October.
