Diving Palau Sardinia
There are 40 dive sites to be visited around Palau Sardinia and the Archipelago of La Maddalena and the Reserve of Lavezzi. You may wish to check out our gallery for some photos of the dive sites in Palau Sardinia.
Diving Palau north Sardegna is in a strategic location for scuba diving in Sardinia diving the northern part of Sardinia, we can easily reach all the dive sites in the Archipelago, while Lavezzi (Corsica) is just 12 miles from the harbour. Most of the dive sites can be reached in a few minutes or maximum 50 minutes. The presence of many islands and islets in the area offer us sheltered places to dive.
Diving Maddalena Sardinia in the Archipelago and Bonifacio Strait is a wide shallow bottom area, the waters between the islands are no deeper than 70 meters. Such an extension of shallow and well lit bottoms, swept by currents, represent a perfect cradle for rich and diversified marine life. You will dive along enormous granite rocks, drop offs, overhangs, swim through, caves all covered by spectacular marine life, sea fans, sponges, tube worms. Those incredible landscapes offer habitats to a large variety of fishes, molluscs and crustaceans like moray eel, stone fish, breams, conger, barracudas, groupers, octopus, crabs, lobster and lots of nudibranches.
Most of the sedimentary bottoms are covered with prairies of Posidonia Oceanica, a superior plant with flowers and fruits. The Posidonia Oceanica are huge nurseries to different species of fishes, crustaceans and molluscs.
For the wreck lovers there is the Angelika, a cargo ship lying in between 15 and 21 meters to a world war II bomber engine sitting at a depth of 22 meters.
Nearly all the dive sites are suitable for any level of certification.
The water temperature varies from 15 degrees celcius in early Spring and between 19 to 25 degrees in Summer and Autumn.
Our daily dive trips start at 8h00. We leave the port early as we want to be the first at the dive site. We go out for two dives with a 1 hour surface interval, small snacks and drinks will be provided on board. We return to Palau by midday so you have the rest of the day for other activities or for a third dive.
We are proud to offer to all our guests a 5* service on board. All the diving equipment is prepared for you and changed over for your next dive and also packed for you.
