Sud-Est Diving was born, after a few years of incubation, with this name in Otranto in 1988, driven by two characters particularly dear to the seafaring navy: Franco Muoio (aka "Brindisino" ) diver of the port, corallaro but above all profound knowledge of these depths and friend of all those who love the sea and Roberto Vetruccio (aka "Robertino") owner of the most important nautical shop of the town and a great lover of fishing and sea, his in fact it is the choice of the name Sud-Est Diving and again the logo that distinguishes the diving. Affiliated to the local section of the Italian Naval League, first among the maritime institutions of Otranto, remained tied to this institution for about three years under the guidance of Piero Scaffidi and Roberto Marino.
Today Sud-Est Diving is owned by DiveGest s.r.l. and has multiplied its presence in the Otranto, Brindisi offices and boasts a branch office also located in Safaga on the Red Sea (Egypt).
A small company made up of small numbers but with great attention, professionalism and infinite experience. The diving instructor remained the M.I.D.C. Piero Scaffidi, "Lu Pieru", soul and technical guide of the diving center also following the change of ownership and whose presence in the structure in the period of greatest influx, from June to September, is a constant certainty. The team then consists of a complete team of professionals: Giuseppe Mastronuzzi - C.M.A.S. Instructor 2 stars, Antonio Bianco - C.M.A.S. Instructor 2 stars, Attilio Terrevoli - C.M.A.S.

All activities are carried out in the name of respect, knowledge and love for the sea, as well as in compliance with the rules aimed at guaranteeing absolute safety for students, as a prerogative of C.M.A.S. and NAUI.
