Sea Spirit Diving Resort offers dive sites of varying difficulty for all levels of experience. All dive sites are only a few minutes away, therefore only a short navigation is required. Taormina’s sea beds are rocky so this gives us good visibility, ranging from 10 to 30 meters during the whole season from May to October. The different spots start from the Naxos Calcara. Here you see one of the first signs of the Greek colonisation of Sicily – the Roman Columns. The dive sites follow along the marine park of Isola Bella, past the beautiful bay of the blue cave to finally arrive to the rock ‘du Zio Innaru’ next to the bay of Taormina Mazzarò. The morphology of the coast and the seabed is unique in its kind and one can come across many different types of flora and fauna. For example, the ‘Posidonia’, a typical Mediterranean underwater weed. With its leaf development a high amount of oxygen is produced that also contributes to the consolidation of the seabed and beaches, protecting them from erosion. But mostly this sea grass is the ideal environment for juvenile fish.
Colourful Mediterranean Sea fans and Pinne Nobilis, which is the biggest Mediterranean clam, will appear throughout your dive. Dive into history of the Roman columns at the Capo Taormina and in the marine reserve’s beautiful island with its steps and walls studded with sponges and astroidies (small sea daisies), ending with the blue cave and the amazing shrimp cave. You will encounter a variety of fish species of the Mediterranean such as: groupers, moray eels, brown meagre, greater forkbeard, crabs, lobsters, eagle rays, octopus, goldline fish, saddled bream and much more. An unforgettable experience.
