We are crestfallen by this bad review, especially because it was based upon a total misunderstanding in regard to the prevailing laws of this protected marine area. The public is able to read in the “Disciplinare del Parco Nazionale – Area Marine Protetta dell’Asinara” found in www.parcoasinara.org, that all the dives in the interior of the protected marine area can be only executed by authorized personnel, with authorized nautical transportation, belonging to authorized Diving Centres. Furthermore by the agreement made by all the authorized Diving Centres of this area and the Harbor office of Porto Torres, people are not allowed to fill tanks through other entities; this was agreed to have more control over the, sadly diffused, illegal and unregulated fishing in the interior of the protected marine area. Additionally, on the basis of the Law 81/8 (regarding the safety in the working area), the air used to refill the tanks can be only utilized by the clients accompanied by Diving Centres. We are not able to refill tanks for personal uses. Obviously none of us has discouraged or prevented anyone from diving in the dive sites out of the perimeter of the Protected Marine Area. Please, before writing comments based upon invalid information, we invite you to consult the various local laws. Plus, we would like to precise that between an inexperienced scuba diver and an instructor with much experience, the same rules apply. Our professionalism has to remain intact, we must follow all the safety procedures. This is the only way we can offer fun diving experiences with full respect of our environment. Asinara Scuba Diving.
