Who we are
Sea Spirit Diving Resort in Giardini-Naxos Taormina was founded by PADI Course Director Carmelo Sgroi in 2012. We are a registered PADI 5 Star CDC Dive Resort so you can be assured that our quality of training and service meets PADI standards. In 2016, 2018, 2019 and 2020 Sea Spirit received the PADI Award for outstanding commitment in the diving industry.
Our resort is situated at UNAhotel Naxos Beach in Giardini-Naxos, Sicily, Italy. We are located 100m from the beach and only a short walk from many hotels.
Our boats depart from the main harbor of Giardini-Naxos Taormina, only 10/15 minutes from each dive spot.
Our new boat – Sea Spirit 1 – is a beautiful fibreglass boat measuring at 12m long by 3.8m wide. It is approved for the transport of 22 people. The boat has been modernized to offer our guests a large space for dressing-up and for moments of relaxation! The tanks are loaded on specifically made benches designed to hold tanks in place for a secure and safe set up. A large space is provided below each seat where each diver can store any equipment necessary for carrying out the dive. Access to the sea takes place from the stern via deep water entry. We have a strong and convenient ladder for returning back onto the boat. Hot water is always available on board and it is also possible to recharge torches, mobile phones and small electronic equipment. Between one dive and the next, the bow can be used as a sunbathing area and allows all guests to relax and enjoy the day! Sea Spirit 1 is equipped with 2 volvo penta 380 HP turbo diesel engines, 250lt water tanks, an MCH 16 TPS Coltri compressor for easy refilling of tanks, bathroom, showers, kitchen, compartment for storing equipment and rack for 40 tanks.
Sea Spirit 2 is a 7.80m diving raft (Lomac) with a roof and has an outboard motor 200hp. Both boats have a fully-kitted first aid kit and pure oxygen tank.
We are available for diving 7 days a week during the season (April – October) and are able to offer very flexible dive packages and training courses.
Giardini-Naxos has many restaurants and bars so there is plenty of choice for dining out and evening entertainment all within walking distance. Local supermarkets, banks and shops are also located on the main street. A regular bus service runs between Giardini-Naxos and Taormina.
Sea Spirit Diving Resort is the only official PADI 5 star CDC Dive Resort in Giardini Naxos / Taormina.
A great opportunity to improve your diving skills or to approach the world of scuba diving in the pool or at sea.
