The diving center is built on a floating platform of 140 square meters, on the Jetty H of the suggestive Marina of Poltu Quatu. Unique in its kind, it offers unequalled solutions of comfort and functionality. Arriving at the Orso Diving Club you can directly transfer your equipment from your car to the diving center. The boats are moored around the wide veranda, which is also a very practical pier, used for loading and unloading operations, as well as to assemble the equipment and rinse it in a fresh water basin. Under the veranda there are also fresh water showers at the clients’ disposal. Those who effectuate multiple dives can leave all their equipment on board, even the bottle assembled with jacket and regulator. Thanks to the external air gauges of the compressor, we can fill the tanks directly on board, while the staff rinse them with water hoses.
FLOATING BASE, WHAT A COMFORT!
People who have taken part in a diving cruise should have certainly appreciated the organisation and the comfort of diving in such a lucky situation. The equipment is at the distance of an arm, in most cases the bottle remains assembled with jacket and regulator for the whole period and divers only need to put on their suits, jump on the rubber boat and go diving within a few minutes of navigation. Well, at the Orso Diving is practically the same. Take a look at our timetable: you will notice that between your arrival at the base and your departure from it just two hours go by, during which a dive of 50 minutes takes place without hurring up!
The base is composed of the following spaces: compressor room, filling station, clients’ equipment storage room, office with “internet point” at the customers’ disposal, classroom, equipment room with rental desk and repairing service. On the roof of the structure it’s available for our customers a panoramic terrace to rest or lay in the sun. 50m from the diving center you can use the services of the Marina of Poltu Quatu, with toilets and hot showers.
