Your voyage starts from the dive centre and Capo Galera. The check dive is completed and then away you go. There are 2 itineraries run on Hande sailing either north or south from the dive centre. Set the compass north and you will reach the massive Punta Giglio at the mouth of Porto Conte. Here the highlights are the submerged caves at Falco, Ghosts and del Pozzo. There are also dives at Cala Barca and the 16th century sunkon galleon. If you are heading south, you first reach Bosa before moving down to Capo Maragiu and Buggerru. Stop at Carloforte where the old Ligurian dialects of the past are still spoken. Whichever itinerary you chose, you are sure to escape from the tourist trail and discover an authentic experience that few get to see as well as inspirational diving.
Thanks to their years of experience, the Capo Galera team know every nook and cranny of the coastline. They have a wealth of dive sites to visit but the unmissable stops include Ghost's Cave and Falco where the light streams in to create an unparalleled atmosphere. Stalactites cling to the caves, twisting into marvelous formations whilst rock arches create a natural playground for divers. To the south the diving is no less alluring. Pullitone is a submerged rock monolith whilst Mal di Ventre is home to turtles. Pan de Zucchero rises up from the sea bed and is a haven for all manner of marine life.
Divers or snorkelers will love the brilliant blue waters. The visibility is excellent - from the boat itself you can see the sea bed dropping away. The conditions are usually calm making this a fabulous destination for divers of all levels including beginners. No matter if you have never dived cave systems before, the Sardinia Discovery is an ideal entry point for these breath taking dives.
As you discover Sardinia you will be welcomed by the friendly locals. From the bows of the beautiful Hande, take in the ancient settlements and local traditions between dives. Both the northern and southern itineraries deliver first class diving in this stunning Mediterranean island and there is no one more knowledgeable to be your guides than Capo Galera.
