In a splendid peninsula, in front of the protected sea waters of Molara and Tavolara Aquarius is celebrating the start of its 20th year in operation.
The area is famed to be one of the best areas to dive in the Mediterranean Sea thanks to the majestic Tavolara and Molara islands and the protected waters full of giant groupers, barracudas, eels and a large variety of organisms like nudibranches, sponges and briozoas. The area has been recently declared the richest in the Mediterranean for Biodiversity.
Inside a beautiful area formed by pines and eucalyptus in the residential complex "Le Farfalle (Butterflies) in Capo Coda Cavallo, just a few steps from the beach where divers embark.
The dive sites in the Marine park are located between 5 and 15 minutes of navigation, giving the possibility of single dives if requested. Whoever decides to stay at the beach, while the group is diving, can enjoy the panorama of Tavolara, crystal clear water, and the ivory sand. The bay has 2-protected areas in the sea perfect for casual diving and for children. The beach has available all typical services (kiosk, pedal boats, sunbeds, and umbrellas).
Within the centre there are several well organized spaces such as the classroom for educational activities, locked areas for the scuba equipment and small private boxes to store personal belongings during the dive.
The dive centre includes a platform to prepare for diving and 20 square meters with 3 sweet water tanks for rinsing equipment. There are practical locked areas for drying the personal wetsuits and 30 private baskets to pack the rest of the scuba gear overnight if required.
