We were a group making 7 dives in June 2019. Friendly welcome from Laura and Alberto. Laura is fluent in a number of languages. Large comfortable RIB dive boat. 15l tanks with double taps, 220 Bar pressure. A nice variation of dive sites between Vulcano and Lipari islands. Good attention to safety. We ended our trip with a very enjoyable boat ride to discover some of the hidden treasures around the coast of Vulcano. I would recommend Saracens to anyone looking for a reliable and friendly dive center.

Albert and Laura run a good dive center. Albert doesn't speak too much English but has enough to get by and Laura is fluent if she is around. Definitely felt safe diving with them - which isn't always the case. While we were with them there were other punters who could translate anyway. Saw some impressive underwater sights (volcanic cliffs hitting the sandy sea floor). Lots or morays and small fish. Well worth a trip. Hint: The Google map position of the center wasnn't accurate one our phones. You need to go right round the South West end of the Black Beach to find it - past the Mari del Sud resort

An excellent 2 days diving. Alberto is a very good guide and although he didn't speak English we managed to communicate through other guests fine. Was my birthday on the 2nd day and as it was Alberto's wife's birthday too they treated everyone to champagne and cakes on the boat. A great experience and stunning dives.

This is a great diving centre run by a team who seem to have a real love for the sea and the sea life around the islands. The instructors are both excellent with young children putting them at ease in the sea. The equipment is in good condition. Slightly difficult to find if you are coming from Sicily for the day but very well worth it.

Excellent dive center. Pleasantly surprised by the condition and availability of oboudovaniya. All included in the price of 50 euros. It is a pity that only one dive.
