Capo Galera

Could you create a website for my Diving Center?

This is the question I asked my friend Michele a few years ago.
We were sitting in the veranda of the villa sheer above the cliff, in front of us two good beers, farther out our sea with the sun setting behind Capo Caccia...

This is how the Diving Center and the web met the first time. Years have passed and things have changed. Also the web site, of course, but not the passion and the enthusiasm that guide us, that are always the same.

As ever the sea is magnificent, there is enough gear available to dive the Titanic, the instructors have more experience in diving than a Top Gun pilot in flying, the lobsters are highly social as usual and so on…

But more, the Diving Center Capo Galera has something very special, magical: it’s located on a peninsula in the middle of the gulf of Alghero, surrounded by Mediterranean maquis, in a white villa on the cliff. Even if the town Alghero is only fifteen minutes car drive away, you feel far away from everything; the diving boat is rocking in the bay, and you are there with the other divers, in front of the fire, to tell and hear stories of the sea.

Everyone who lives here knows that beauty never gets boring: come to Capo Galera and you will understand why.

What our Divers Say

Settimana da sogno!
Abbiamo trascorso, con mio marito, una settimana per fare immersioni e deliziarci gli occhi con i meravigliosi scenari che la natura offre in questo posto incantato! nulla è stato al di sotto delle nostre aspettative! Gaddo e la sua equipe sono molto accoglienti e professionali: le immersioni sono studiate e preparate nei minimi dettagli, ci si sente assistiti dall'inizio alla fine. La "location" è impagabile! Tramonti mozzafiato e scogliere a picco in un mare cristallino; tutto condito da pace e serenità.


Excellent dive centre and dive instructor
I stayed at the centre with my wife and two kids. I did two morning dives and my daughter did a discover scuba diving session. I'm a marine biologist and a formal diving professional and I have to say this was a really excellent experience. The diving centre manger Gaddo was very welcoming. The instructor for for daughter was excellent. The diving was superb by mediterranean standards. I'm going back to this centre for sure.


We will be back
Unfortunately we only had one afternoon for our kids to do their first diving experience in the sea. Otherwise we would have signed them up for the whole open water diver course. The equipment was excellent, the briefing and instructor was very thorough and the location is fabolous. We already booked our holiday for next year. Give it a try!


Diving trip
Great place! Great staff! Great equipment! Funny but also really engaged owner☺ We had a pleasure to be accommodated in Capo Galera by 4 nights. 3 days diving. Dive spots as well as Capo Galera dive center are the best at Sardinia. You can expect good quality and well furnished apartments with the amazing view (the best located dive center I've ever seen), well organized staff and a lot of fun not just because of diving in the caves or along cliff walls of Capo Caccia with plenty of fish! Hoping we can back to you next season! You really change the diving market.


Amazing & fully professional
I've never before met such a professional diving center. Equipment, organization, the owner passion and overall atmosphere created by Gaddo and his team was amazing. Definitely it was worth to stay there. I didn't have a chance to see all the caves, but definitely I'll come back.


An incredible diving experience
The incredible competence and friendliness of the staff, coupled with the truly stunning diving areas which bless the nearby sea and coastline, contribute to making diving vacations on Capo Galera a truly marvelous experience. I obtained the Advanced Open Water Diver and the Nitrox certificates in my most recent stay and the instructors ensured it was fun and enjoyable, whilst maintaining high standards of thoroughness and professionality. I recommend Capo Galera both for neophytes and veterans of scuba diving.


Posto da sogno
Location incredible a pochi gradini dal mare. Immersioni tra le più belle del mediterraneo tra grotte e coralli nell'Area Marina Protetta di Capo Caccia. Lo staff è giovane e cordiale e con piani di immersione adatti a tutti i livelli. Sono molti anni che faccio immersione nella zona e con loro riesco a scoprire esperienze sempre nuove! Spero di riuscire a tornare anche l'anno prossimo.


Good communication, especially as we didn't speak a word of Italian! Felt completely safe with these guys, kit is of a high standard and they pitched the dives according to our experience. Laid back and welcoming team, who also provided a gluten free lunch! If we're ever back in Sardinia I would not hesitate to use them again! Grazie!
