Ciao, Scubaboard!

WE are returned from beautiful Italy and were able to get our day of diving into the trip. We dove three tanks, three sites in the Portofino Marine Park and all were really fun……

Highlights of the diving: A school of maybe 75 barracuda

Beautiful brightly colored starfish in large numbers and of course the Christ of the Abyss.

It was along day, lots of driving and tons to feed the senses. The whole area near Portofino, Cinque Terre, is spectacular and I could have easily spent my whole trip there.

Thank you to Luca and his staff at DWS for taking great care of us!

“Hi Luca,

thanks a lot for the nice diving the last four days. We were really excited by the wonderful wall yesterday - It was one of our most beautiful dives ever... and Christian said it we will promise to come back to see this wall once again and making beautiful pictures.

Many thanks to you and Marco and we wish you a nice winter and a contemplative Christmas time.

See you soon’

“Just a quick note to let you know that our excursion with Luca and Tonino was quite possibly the highest highlight of our entire trip!
The beauty of Portofino blew my mind. Santa Margherita was intoxicating. Tonino phoned ahead and made lunch arrangements for us.
Snorkelling was great.
Thanks for everything. “

“I really enjoyed meeting all of you and diving with you guys. Thanks again for everything! “

“We just returned to San Francisco yesterday and wanted to drop you both a line to say it was an absolutely pleasure working with DWS Diving! We had such a fabulous time on our dive and loved meeting the DWS dive team! Francesco was a great teacher for my try dive and I'm really happy that I did it. I will definitely continue my classes here in the US! 

You both were so generous to us with recommending restaurants in the area - La Beccaccia was simply AMAZING! We will definitely be back to Santa Margherita again and will be sure to contact you!

We had such a lovely time on our vacation and can't thank you enough for all your assistance.”
“Ciao Luca

We will certainly recommend your diving center to our friends and colleagues.

"Hi Luca
I wanted to thank you for the dives and everything for last week end.
Everybody was happy with our stay, and it was great to discover another place/country to dive. Thank you again, and have a nice summer!"
