Being around Porto Cesareo in September I decided to spend a day underwater. There is quite some choice available when it comes to dive schools in Puglia but I doubt any can be as professional and awesome as Costa del Sud. A couple of days before arriving to Porto cesareo I called Andrea and he has been from the beginning super friendly and super knowledgeable. I felt so welcome already by phone that I decided to book two dives with them. The first one was with a dive instructor called Giulia that has been amazing! Super smiley and very keen to share her extensive knowledge of the marine life and reefs we were about to see. The second dive was with Gianmarco and he has been really professional and nice and properly showed us the dive site we were exploring that day. All in all I think they’re one of the best diving schools I have ever dove with (Australia, Thailand, Bahamas, Greece..) always safety first and top notch gear to rent. Also their prices are absolutely great! Last but not least...the dive spots they offer are also really good! I decided to dive mainly because I want to do a few dives per year not to loose the fitness but I was really positively impressed with what I saw underwater in the Ionian Sea. Great job guys, grazie mille!!!

Friendly people, also very professional. Andrea is one of the best diving instructors I've ever met. It feels safe to dive with him and his team. It is a beautiful environment to dive with interesting sites.

I dropped in and asked about the JU88 dive and Angelique sorted me out straight away. The centre is right by the boats so no messing around with gear and parking is easy locally. The boats are good and there is a great sense of being in the company of some good divers. The dive itself on the aircraft was seriously good and better than I ever expected, to find a wreck in this condition is amazing and viz and water temp a doddle(2.5mil suit perfectly adequate.)with hardly any current. A few minutes deco later and a big smiling diver got back on the boat. Happy days. I would suggest you bring as much of your own gear as possible as costs rise with each bit of kit you need. I would definitely recommend and would do that same dive 100 times. I hope I do.

I carried out two dives with them and was really impressed at the way they were, their professional divers were really good and kept a careful eye on all the divers, whether experienced or not. Found that the dives were quite interesting, especially the one into the caves and tunnels. If I had the time would liked to have done more diving with them.

I went today with my wife, we have almost 100 dives all around the world between the 2 of us and this has been one of the best experience ever! The staff is super friendly and highly qualified, all the equipment is very new and high quality, the diving spots are outstanding! Ask for the excursion to Aereo (WWII German airplane) or Grotta (cave)... and I'm confident many others are great as well. Highly recommended!
