Scuba dive in Ustica is GREAT ...
It is not comparable to the red sea, of course, but is still one of the best places in the mediterranean sea. In fact, Ustica was the very first protected sea-area in Italy.
And it is not difficult to go there at all. From the port of Palermo You have daily connections, both normal and fast boat.
And there is a very good scuba diving school there. It is the www.orcasub.it diving center (they are based in Palermo, Milan, and Ustica). And they can arrange all the accommodation for You, in the hotel You prefer; and all the rest ...
Good luck for that!
