We wrapped up our week at Profondo Blu Diving in Ustica and can honestly say it was one of the highlights of the trip so far. Their motto is good diving, good food and good company and they definitely provide all three. Paolo and Ann are the most gracious hosts you can imagine, sharing their knowledge of diving during the day and Italian food and culture during the evenings. I’m not sure what took more out of us, the 2 dives a day, or the massive home cooked meals courtesy of their fabulous chef, Maria. One of the best meals was fresh jackfish, so fresh we saw it earlier that day when a local fisherman sold it to us as we got off of the dive boat. Fresh tuna, fish soup, rissotto, meringue with fresh cream, homemade limoncello…it’s a wonder we even needed weight belts to help us sink in the water!
