2. Philosophy

By limiting to a few units the number of divers we welcome to each dive trip, we are able to offer a more personal dive experience and to be more attentive to the needs of each diver. We are proud to be the smallest and the most exclusive dive operator in Portofino with the intent to meet the requirements of the most demanding divers, both beginners and experts, who wish to stay away from crowds.

5. Passion

Diving is not just a profession for us, it takes up a large part of our free time. We are attracted by every sort of scuba diving. We love relaxing and shallow dives, but our favorite is to have a goal when we dive: we prefer diving for scientific purposes, to participate in biology and archeology projects, as well as exploring caves and shipwrecks. We like to pass on this passion to all those who dive with us.

We are committed to provide safer, more relaxing and longer dives within the level of comfort and experience of each participants. We are not in a hurry to get back to the harbor because we leave plenty of time between an excursion and the next one. Once again, we renounce the quantity in favor of quality.
