Portofino Divers has chosen to invest in selling equipment from a limited selection of brands mainly because we use them personally in our diving centre and therefore have the opportunity to test them first hand and at length, but also because the quality and reliability of the small number of companies and products that we focus on have been proven through daily use of the same.
Our shop sells the same models that are also available for hire, allowing customers to try before they buy, and offers helpful tips and suggestions for the best way to use and care for them.
Our diving centre has used, tested, sold and rented out "HALCYON" products for everything required in the way of equipment and accessories and "DUI" products for that which concerns clothing, in particular drysuits and undersuits, for many years now.
We believe that these companies offer the best products currently available on the market relevant to GUE - DIR diving systems in terms of the guarantee offered related to safety, function, material durability, attention to detail and design.
The unmistakable, neat style and aggressive, clean lines mean that divers wearing this equipment can be sure of their means, so important for their survival and on which they fully rely when exploring environments that they do not belong to, whilst it remains nice to look at … because looks also count.
Hydrodynamics is one of the most important feature of this equipment so every single component has been designed to ensure that nothing hampers propulsion when diving, whether it may be provided by flippers or scooters, so there are no frills or excessive decorations that are not essential to the ultimate end or required for diving purposes.
None of the equipment has belts, buckles or plastic fastenings susceptible to breakage or even worse accidental release, or pegs, hooks, extendable coils or any other parts that may be unsuitable and at times dangerous.
The materials used mainly consist of stainless steel, aluminium, Cordura, Teflon, Thinsulate, Polartec and super-strong resin, in other words the best that technology can offer in this field.
We guarantee swift delivery of goods in the event that they are momentarily out of stock at the time of order.
