Diving in Sicily

Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, separated from Italy by the Strait of Messina. It is one of the five autonomous regions of Italy and, to the eye, is the ball that the Italian boot looks to be kicking. It also has a group of surrounding smaller islands, known as Regione Siciliana.
The coastline is a treat for divers thanks to its endless variety. There are small archipelagos to explore, revealing dazzling marine life, while the underwater scenery is second to none. Not only will you find secret bays and coves to dive, there are cliffs, rocks and stacks all lining up to make your dives more exciting.

A volcanic island crowned by Mount Etna means you can also find volcanic rock on the sea floor, as well as granite and basalt, and with 30m (98ft) visibility you can enjoy the dramatic topography in all its glory. You won’t be short of dive sites here, there are six Marine protected Areas in total, ensuring you have the chance to discover a pristine underwater world and with lots of small islands to explore, many divers opt for a liveaboard trip to make the most of Sicily’s endless variety.

Wildlife in Sicily

Unfortunately, in the area around Sicily, overfishing is a problem and that can lead to a lack of certain types of fish that should be common to the area. This is also an area where you will not run into bigger underwater inhabitants unless you go all the way south. You will still find plenty of life to behold. Fish like groupers, sea bream, anthias, nudibranch, and flying gunardsare common. As well as other types of life like octopus, moray and conger eels, and crustaceans like crab, lobster, and shrimp.
