Living becomes an art in many places around Italy at large but has a truly magical meaning in Costa Smeralda.

Costa Smeralda means emerald coast by definition and is the location in which we specialize. It is one of the most beautiful places in the Mediterranean for one simple reason. The protection of the island allows for nature’s beauty to thrive both above land and below the surface of its surrounding sea.

Our rigorous and local concierge team have lived a lifetime where the luxurious nature of Sardinia is appreciated, respected and celebrated both above and below the sea level. Their knowledge of Sardinia’s weather, seasonal activity and your specific needs can navigate your diving adventures to perfection.

The La Maddalena Archipelago Park preserves a natural condition both in the terrestrial and above all marine contexts. It constitutes a positive example of the protection of the coastal system that extends for over 180km.

Inside and in the areas adjacent to the park it is possible to report about 30 diving spots able to satisfy the most varied needs of divers: descents suitable for the most experienced but also ideal bottoms for beginner divers. This rare corner of the Mediterranean manages to give, from the first meters of depth, an explosion of life and colors unique of its kind.

Proteus Diving in Baja Sardinia has the privilege of operating within the International Park of the Strait of Bonifacio which includes the nature reserve in southern Corsica (Lavezzi island) and the La Maddalena Archipelago national park. A unique corner of the sea, with crystal clear waters with a thousand shades of blue and seabed full of life.


Our concierge team can also arrange diving courses. Being able to convey one’s passion for a fascinating activity like diving is one of the reasons why we love our job. Thanks to a personalized course planning, a private beach from which to carry out the first scheduled exercises, students will be placed in the ideal conditions to approach this fantastic activity.
