- Portofinodivers team

I enjoy my stay at portofinodivers, as a diver I met a full service for good price and a team who perfectly knows my technical needs, as an instructor I really liked the all-inclusive package, easiest organization ever, just need to give the email to the student

Stephane Paziente GUE Instructor

I highly recommend Portofino Divers to all of my students and friends. Fantastic environment below and above the water : world class reefs in the protected marine parc, impressive wrecks all around, a more than excellent and capable dive centre familiar with our style of diving, good Italian food, .... i can't get any better. The Portofino team and logistics are amazing and it makes teaching or following any GUE course really feel like holidays, Hope to be back soon !

Peter Brandt GUE Instructor

If Portofino Divers hosts my classes, I know everything is ready and we will have fun and efficient days. The optimized logistic allow to forget the car for the whole duration of the course by reducing down-times. The level of professionalism is outstanding and Bruno and his team makes teaching and learning very easy. Days here are just perfect: Cool diving, great people, italian food. 

Irene Homberger GUE Instructor

Diving and teaching at Portofino Divers is great fun. There’re numerous fantastic dive sites for every level with awesome wrecks and a beautiful marine park nearby. Joining Portofino Divers means having all you need close by. The very well organized dive center and the nice accommodations are located in the charming harbor of Santa Margherita Ligure, in the midst of the Italian Riviera.

Henning May GUE Instructor

I have visited Bruno at Portofino Divers many times, both as a student and as an instructor. The dive facility is very well organised, efficient and a very relaxed place to learn and teach. The diving available is also excellent. Shallow sites for skills, and then really amazing wrecks and reefs for the experience parts of the class. This makes it a great place to go and dive for fun too. Thoroughly recommended!

Richard Walker GUE Instructor Trainer

Teaching at Portofino Divers is an easy endeavor. There is easy accommodation just above the dive center, great logistics that allow for beach entry or boat diving training sessions, all gas fills and rental gear available at hand and the professional staff that are anticipating all yours and your students needs. And above that you will experience great Italian hospitality of your hosts and relaxed atmosphere in one of the most picturesque towns in Liguria.

GUE dive training
  • All the costs for diving logistic, both training and experience dives, required for each specific course are included in the packages
  • For Fundamentals and Rec1 training programs, all the diving equipment is available to the students for rent free of charge for all the duration of the class, except drysuits, primary light systems which are available for rent at a special rate. For all the other training programs we offer 50% discount on our equipment rental rates.
  • All the cylinders needed for recreational and technical courses, either the bottom gas, the deco gasses and the drysuit inflation system, are free of rental charge for both the students and the instructor.
  • All the costs for nitrox and trimix refills are included in the dive center fee of each course, it means that there are no additional costs for tank refills. For all GUE courses even the cost for the instructor gas fills is included in the dive center fee when he is teaching a full class.
  • Also the instructor can travel to our facility without even one bolt snap since he can use our equipment free of charge, primary light included !  Anyway, if possible, we suggest to bring at least the undergarment and the drysuit which are considered more "personal" components.
  • Our goal is not only to offer great savings in terms of costs but also considerably improvement of travelling conditions which is one of the reasons why Portofino Divers is an excellent solution for courses, as instructors and students will find at their disposal all of the components required for setting up both GUE rec and tech diving configuration.
  • Finally, we provide diving equipment service and spare parts reducing the risk of losing a training dive due to equipment failures or malfunctions.
  • All course packages include accommodation. Packages without accommodation are available on request.
