We were looking for a place that would do a dive trip but also let us spend a few hours on Capri after. Most places do tours to Capri, and a few do dive trips, but we couldn't find any to do both. Marieangela and crew were so accommodating and great hosts. She prepared homemade food to eat en route and fresh fruit for the ride back from Capri. The boat is a dive boat, so nothing fancy, but it was perfect for what we wanted.

Came on a family holiday on a hot hot week in August and the snorkelling trip with my two boys (11 & 16yrs old) was a perfect activity to do. We travelled out on the dive boat and did two snorkelling sessions with the lovely Anne guiding us. She made sure that we knew what fish and sea creatures we might see and gathered star fish and urchins from the sea floor for us to look at and hold. They spotted variety of fish, octopus and sea cucumbers. The boys enjoyed the whole experience - many thanks.

My husband and I love our diving but because this wasn't a diving holiday for us and due to having very restricted baggage allowance we did not bring any dive equipment except mask and snorkel. However once here we found the sea so tempting we decided to look for the diving center we had found on the internet. After a bit of searching and asking for directions we finally located it. The centre is Padi affiliated and we met the owner Marieangelina who was very helpful and friendly. We went back later to check out the equipment and again a staff member was happy to show us anything we wanted and answered any questions we had. We booked for a two tank dive each which was €220 in total including the hire of equipment. I was a little apprehensive about not having my own dive kit however the centres equipment was excellent. On inspection everything looked very well maintained. Their boat was very good with everything we needed at hand. There were 11 of us in total including crew and I felt that this was comfortable. We were the only divers the other 6 punters were snorkelling however one young lad did the Padi experience diving course. Which , judging by the smile on his face when he had finished was both successful and enjoyable. Our dive guide Andrew was helpful and knowledgable giving us an in depth pre dive plan for each dive, including info about the site, some history and what to look out for and avoid. The dives were good if you have never been diving in Italy before and want to tick a box. we saw some lovely little critters including various nudibranch's , star fish,octopus, scorpion fish and a hermit crab as well as the shoals of local fish. The second dive (I won't give too much away ) was very interesting and historic. Thank you to this fantastic little centre for a great service.

In June this year I was in Sorrento, Italy and decided to have a dive with the Futuro Mare dive shop. Upon enquiry I was told that if I went with them on a certain day they would be diving Punta Campanella, a protected marine area/marine reserve, which was only allowed 7 times a year, so a opted to take this opportunity in the hope that there would be something a little 'extra' to be had diving this site. The staff of the dive shop were most helpful in kitting me out and soon we were on our way to the boat with a total of 12 guest divers plus 2 dive guides. So far so good. I was to dive with 2 women from the UK, one who had about 40 dives under her belt the other 60, who also held an 'advanced' ticket as well as a 'rescue' dive card. I have logged 700+ dives. Our dive guide gave us a good briefing to proceed to do what seemed was going to be an easy dive. The plan was simple - enter the water, form up as a group, check we are all OK and descend to a platform at 12m for another check and then proceed to do 2 circuits of the sea mount gradually ascending from a maximum depth of 20m as we went. The surface conditions were very calm, almost glassy, just with the odd chop from a passing boat, no current and good visibility of around 18m. But, things did not go to plan as our 'advanced/rescue' diver was in trouble right from the start and couldn't seem to get her act together despite one on one help from the dive guide. Watching from the 12m platform she seemed to not have enough weight, so the guide gave her more, this did not solve her problem of being totally 'out of control' with her orientation in the water. After waiting with the other woman for sometime at the 12m platform I 'requested' from the guide that were going to proceed with the dive plan on our own, which we did without incident, the dive guide gave us the OK and that he would return to the boat with the 'advanced/rescue' diver. The dive. Perhaps I have been spoilt but considering that this was a protected/marine reserve the marine life was somewhat disappointing... in truth there is more life to be seen in the river estuary where I live in Australia! OK, there were a few Barracuda and a few small fish but beyond that it was lacking. Shame, as the terrain was quite spectacular as the sea mount had very steep walls and as I said the viz was quite good. Anyway, once back on board the boat I asked the 'advanced/rescue' diver if she was OK and the nature of the issues she was dealing with... only to be told that upon entering the water she became totally disoriented and very nervous due to the 'rough' surface conditions! Her exact words being that she had never dived in such rough seas before. i was speechless! I asked where she normally dives and was told that Sharm El Sheikh and Wraysbury pond in the UK. Looking on the bright side... lucky for me I didn't need to be rescued!!!!! Back to the day of diving... now this bit did make me sad... there we were doing our surface interval when more than half the divers, the 2 UK women and one of the dive guides began to smoke... and worse still most of them threw their cigaret butts...yep, into the water OF THE MARINE RESERVE!!!!! Anyway, for the second dive we moved to a spot at the base of some cliffs where amazingly I saw a couple of moray eels and 1(one) nudibranch. I am glad I did the dive as I can tick the 'dived Italy' box and yes, it was only a one day view at one spot...but then it was what it was.... and I came back alive and didn't need rescuing. As a tip to other divers - when you are diving with people you don't know, try and flush out their experience beyond how many dives they have done. Other than that it was a pleasant day.

Enjoyable dives with excellent staff. I spent 2 mornings, 2 dives each day with Mariangela and her Futuro Mare team enjoying the warm waters just off the coast of Sorrento. Although, as with the majority of the Med, sea life is not as abundant as other dive sites, all dives were well controlled, safe and relaxing, resulting in a memorable way to beat the mayhem of the 'land-lubbers' and wallow in the wonders of the ocean depths. Thank you Mariangela, very much appreciated!
