Description for the dive shop Under Hundred - Italy

The base ( PADI Resort n. S-21837 ) is located in a fenced area where all your needs will be met: it's possible to rinse out equipment, hang it up for dryng and recovering for the night. Divers and friends can rest on amacs between their dives, away from people and noice. The Dive Centre is not organized to support a big number of divers, Roberto guides not more than 4 or 5 divers per dive. If divers are more another divemaster come on board or more dives are planned to avoid too much divers per dive. Dives are scheduled at 9:00 am and 3:00 pm, more dives can be planned at 11:30 am and 5:00 pm. Usually it take 2 hours per dive thanks to the short distance to the dive sites, the fast boat and the very small number of divers on the boat.

UNDER HUNDRED : HAPPY TO BE "SMALL". Marina and Roberto are married since ten years, together since more than the double. Their love for the sea started before, but this was dued, to their home city, Napoli. Passion became a profession in 1997 with managing a diving center in Kenya. With the years they moved to different locations around the world: Africa (Kenya, Tanzania and Egypt) South America (Honduras, Brazil, Argentina) , and diving centres in Sardinia, then Campania and just for case Sicily. Working in Sicily started by a lucky chance, love for the sea met an amazing place like S.Vito Lo Capo, where the sea itself is the main attraction and where a sleepy diving centre was waiting to be awuke. Marina and Roberto did it. They did it following an idea, not a "new" idea but simply a good idea. And the good idea was to bring the standard from a small diving centre on the sunny African beach to S.Vito.
The location is quite the same: the base faces a sandy white beach and is situated under a pine wood that keeps it cool even during the hotest days in august. From the jetty, close to the base, with a fast rubber boat we reach many of the dive sites on the North-Oriental Sicily coast. This area is a paradise for divers: walls, shoals, caves, wrecks at different depths and for all the levels of experience. And experience is the factor that makes diving " enjoyable ".
A dive to be " enjoyable" needs to be on one side within the divers experience limit, on the other side it has to exceed those limits just enough to improve his experience. This is the target Marina and Roberto are following. And there is no place, better than S.Vito Lo Capo and his coast to reach this goal. UnderHundred Diving Centre is here, right on the beach, open from April to October, waiting to guide you without hurry through the beautifull dive sites between Zingaro Reserve and Capo S.Vito .
