Gnu Diving

#1 - Gnu Diving


Gnu Diving was born like this! We met and recognized each other for the same enthusiasm, love and respect for the sea and everything it "contains". The sea forces us to slow down our every movement, the absolute silence, interrupted by our breath, allows us to connect with the marine environment, which never ceases to fascinate and amaze us.

We are guests of this world and we can only love and respect it. Gnu Diving offers everyone the opportunity to discover it for the first time and, for those already patented, to have new experiences with us.

What distinguishes us is the desire to share our passion in joy and pleasure, without detracting from professionalism and safety. For those who already know us, they know what we are talking about; for those who still don't know us, we don't anticipate anything ...
