Tour description

Discover one of the most fascinating dive site in the Portofino marine protected area, over 20 dive spots await you, including the underwater statue of the Christ of the Abyss. Most of the dives are suitable for any level of experience. Beginners can enjoy a wide-ranging of Mediterranean flora and fauna within a few meters below the surface, while more experienced divers can explore the reef at greater depth, looking for colorful corals, rarer species, and traces of ancient shipwrecks.
We welcome a limited number of divers to meet every single need and to offer you a more exclusive and personalized service. Our policy, aimed at quality rather than quantity, allows us to be more attentive to customer care and to reach the highest standards in terms of fun, safety and comfort.
Our afternoon dive trip takes approximately 2 hours, the boat generally returns to the harbour around 4:00 pm.

Requirements

Participants must:

  • be certified Open Water Diver or equivalent;
  • be in good mental and physical fitness to dive (medical certificate NOT required);
  • have a certified Divemaster or Instructor within their group. Maximum ratio allowed -> 1 dive leader : 5 divers

To get the most out of your dives, we recommend to all divers who have not been diving for over a year, in particular those with little experience, to attend a Scuba Refresher program before to get back into diving. You can enroll in a refresher class with your local dive center, or book a session with us as part of your stay.

We recommend to check with your doctor, on an annual basis, that you are in good medical fitness to dive. The purpose of the Diving Medical Questionnaire is to find out if you need to be examined by a physician before participating in a dive trip or in a diving course. If there is a positive answer on the questionnaire you should participate in scuba diving activities only if you are signed off by a physician to be fit to dive. Although not required, divers with more than 50 years are advised to bring the questionnaire signed by their doctor, or a medical certificate of good health, not older than a year.
