Mattia makes diving his passion from an early age. Already as a child, he accompanied mom and dad on their local dives in the pools of the Verzasca and Maggia rivers. From the shore, he followed the air bubbles that passed through the sumptuous granite rocks and wondered what was so fascinating under there. A few years later he wanted to find out firsthand and therefore he decided to go into diving training and became a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor. He has been conducting courses and guided dives for several years.
This experience is organized according to PADI regulations for recreational diving.
For this reason it is necessary to be in possession of at least the PADI Open Water Diver certification or equivalent and to certify that you are in adequate conditions to face the dive.
