Training Camp Open Water – Lampedusa, 09 September – 12 September 2020

Lampedusa belongs to the Pelagie archipelago, which in ancient Greek means "open sea", and it is precisely there that we will go!

Lampedusa is one of the most popular destinations for those who love the sun, diving and wild nature, the lighthouse of the Italian territory before the African coast. Magnificent island south of Sicily, it belongs to a marine protected area since 2002.

The waters surrounding the island are known for their clarity, the caves, gorges and arches that make this area so wonderful to explore.
