Our diving centre is located on the port belvedere of Ustica, from here it takes less than a minute to reach the boats for the morning dive. We usually plan two dives in the morning (8 am and 11 am), the dive sites are chosen daily considering our divers’ experience, preferences and weather conditions. Our two roomy rigid inflatable boats, equipped for scuba diving, allow easy and quick access to all diving and snorkelling sites of the marine protected area of Ustica.
Meet the team of Orca Diving Ustica
After meeting at the diving centre in the morning , you’ll be able to leave your personal belongings safely, before heading to the dock where you’ll set up and check your gear. Our team will take care of the loading and unloading of the gear, you don’t have to carry anything, you’re on holiday!
We leave for the first dive, after a short boat ride (max 15 minutes) to the dive site, you’ll receive a detailed briefing by your guide in either English, French, German or Italian.
The dive groups are small (1 to 5 divers, exceptionally 6) divided by level, experience and preferences. The dives are led by our accredited guides and normally last around 50 minutes.
Between the morning dives you will come back to the dive shop of Orca Diving Ustica for the surface interval. We will gladly offer you various snacks, fresh fruits and cold/hot drinks for you to enjoy whilst chatting about the dives with other divers and our knowledgeable and friendly staff. After nearly two hours of surface interval, you’ll jump in for the second dive on a different site. Once back at the dock we will take care of rinsing your equipment.
The diving activities usually end around 1:00 pm, giving you the possibility to have lunch and explore Ustica in the afternoon, or go for a third dive around 3:00 pm, or a night dive in the evening.
