The Cave Zone

We’re in our C - Cavern - Area, the "Dark Side of the Volcano"! 
Underwater caverns in Ustica are mostly very friendly, as not too narrow, only few have a sandy bottom and just a couple are exclusive to deep/tec divers.
Though, you still need to be certified as a cavern or cave diver to enter any overhead environment. And if you're not certified yet, you can enrol into a training program and take the chance to explore these fascinating sites, safely and with respect for the delicate environment.
Let yourself be guided by experts and qualified cavern dive guides to get the most and live the Cavern Experience  with Mare Nostrum Diving.
Here is a list of the underwater cavities scattered in different dive sites around the island that we may enjoy together.
