Portofino Divers offers recreational, advanced and technical GUE ( Global Underwater Explorers ) diving courses through training programs that give students the key to becoming safe and competent divers, capable of fully enjoying the exhilarating experience of diving at any level.
The classroom sessions are designed to develop the student's level of knowledge and awareness which are essential elements for the safe practice of scuba diving.
At the same time, confidence in the water and familiarity with the equipment are acquired not just through diving practice, but also through specific drills conducted first in shallow water then in open seAs advanced and technical diving becomes possible for a greater number of people, the quality of education must keep pace. Portofino Divers and GUE are taking a stand with uncompromising standards and a keen sense of quality education.
From recreational courses to extended range technical and cave diving, our dive training can prepare you for a lifetime of safe diving adventure.
Global Underwater Explorers merges a passion for diving, ecological study, and rigorous training. GUE members, students and instructors resist mediocrity and instead pursue excellence in their life and their diving.
By actively promoting dive research, exploration, education and conservation, GUE instructors, students and members define the highest level of excellence in diving.
Portofino Divers is the only choice for anyone who not only intends to gain their licence but also wishes to receive full training, in line with their personal experience, the program chosen and their personal learning ability, and within the times required to reach the expected level of ability and grounding for each course.
We also guarantee the same high quality standards for our training courses: diving is our sole profession, our life, and our top priority is to offer increasingly more engaging, advanced and up-to-date courses.
We believe that the possibility to assess the “real” experience of an instructor, that is to say to understand whether the same instructor regularly practices the same type of diving that you want to learn, plays a fundamental role in the selection of the same.
