Detailed description

The desire to dive or snorkel: To look around under water for the first time without having to hold your breath, completely relaxed, is a completely new and unforgettable experience. To do this in the well-deserved holidays at the Mediterranean Sea - for example on the beautiful island Elba - is an absolute highlight of every active holiday. You dive into a completely new world, see unimaginable colours and creatures and even feel weightless! No wonder then that one also speaks of a "diving trip". Now you can experience it on Elba!

Elba - A synonym for blooming nature, beautiful beaches and a surprisingly rich marine fauna.

Elba is a Mediterranean island and belongs to the Tuscan archipelago of the region Tuscany in Italy (province Livorno). It is about ten kilometres from the Italian mainland. Portoferraio is the capital and cultural and economic centre of Elba. You should not miss the opportunity to visit the fortress of Portoferraio, the Napoleonic Museums, but above all the island of Pianosa.

From Island to Island - Diving, Snorkeling and Underwater Photography

From Portoferraio we depart and reach with our boat in a few minutes "Scoglietto", another beautiful small island in the national park of the Tuscan archipelago. Here we enjoy the comfortable snorkelling and introductory diving in this magnificent area, in which a variety of different schools of fish and an interesting geology characterize the underwater landscape.

What many people discover for themselves is underwater photography: Even normal and inexpensive "outdoor" compact cameras enable impressive and presentable holiday photos of a different kind, as they usually easily resist a shallow water depth. For spectacular shots you have to go into tropical waters? Far from it. The Mediterranean also offers endless motifs of submarine colourful life forms.

Not for nothing Elba is an Eldorado for active vacationers: for the hobby diver as well as for the professional and of course also for passionate snorkelers and swimmers. Your holiday there will definitely be eventful and unforgettable!

Yes, quite well, but...

Safety here, safety there – sometimes folks, safety can be overdone. Holidays, I don't always want to worry about safety. Just jump into the unknown. Life is a risk in itself.

Ja, ganz gut, aber…

Hier Sicherheit, und da Sicherheit – manchmal Leute, kann man es mit der Sicherheit auch übertreiben. Urlaub, da will ich mir doch nicht immer nen Kopf wegen Sicherheit machen. Einfach mal ins Unbekannte springen. Das Leben ist nun mal ein Risiko an sich.

Relaxed snorkeling on Elba

The 40 euros for a good two and a half hours are an acceptable tariff. The snorkel gear was clean and not filthy like other vendors. The guide knew what he was doing. people were cool Five stars from me.

Entspanntes Schnorcheln auf Elba

Die 40 Euronen für die gut zweieinhalb Stunden sind ein akzeptabler Tarif. Die Schnorchelausrüstung war sauber und nicht versifft wie bei anderen Anbietern. Der Guide wusste, was er machte. Die Leute waren cool. Fünf Sternchen von mir.

Option 2: Scuba Diving

I tried scuba diving and really enjoyed it. Mainly because the instructors attach great importance to safety and answered all questions professionally. I am proud of my successful sea baptism!

Option 2: Scuba Diving

Ich habe mich am Scuba-Tauchen versucht und es hat mir sehr gefallen. Vor allem, weil die Instrukteure großen Wert auf Sicherheit legen und alle Fragen fachmännische beantworteten. Ich bin stolz auf meine bestandene Seetaufe!
