It also offers the best diving knowledge for each dive site, thanks to the presence of instructors and expert guides who have been operating for years on the southern part of the island.

The Diving Center SUB NOW is located in Marina di Campo, loc. La Foce, south of the island of Elba, in one of the best places on the island adjacent to the “Ville degli Ulivi” village, the “Del Mare” camping and the “La Foce” camping, a few meters from the beach.

The equipment is located in a pine forest adjacent to the campsite along a side road that leads directly to the Hotel Marina 2 and the Elba Aquarium.

During the summer, the SUB NOW Diving Center organizes guided diving excursions, SSI courses of all levels, also offering snorkeling activities in the best places on the south coast of the island.

The center offers daily daily and afternoon excursions, morning dives with double immersion and night dives are organized with a minimum of participants.

The diving is also an instructor training center collaborating with valid didactic directors.

The diving center remains open even during the low season giving the possibility especially to diving schools to rely on us to organize weeks or weekends full of fun and the discovery of the beauties of the island in complete tranquility.
