Brindisi: Diving Experience, Discover "Punta del Serrone"

4. Brindisi: Diving Experience, Discover "Punta del Serrone"

We are a Diving Nadd (educational). Discover the rich marine biodiversity of the Brindisi area. The experience will take place in two phases: 1) 2 hours: the first of theory on the beach, in which the instructor gets you familiar with the equipment, explaining the basics; 2) 1 hour: the second part in diving. After having adequately prepared, we enter the waters off Punta Penne, located on the Adriatic coast of Puglia, near the city of Brindisi. Right from the start, one realizes the immense beauty of the underwater world. The transparent waters allow you to see the sandy bottom and underwater rock formations clearly. The first stages of the dive are characterized by shallow waters, ideal for less experienced divers or for a warm-up phase. As you move away from the coast, the seabed begins to gradually descend, revealing wonderful slopes covered with posidonia meadows and corals, essential habitats for numerous marine species. Among the rocks and cavities, it is possible to meet fish of all shapes and colours: white bream, bream, sea bass, grouper, on some days it is not uncommon to meet dolphins and giant sea turtles. Marine life is diverse and fascinating. As you move through the underwater labyrinth, you will come across bizarrely shaped sea sponges, starfish, octopuses and molluscs hiding in the crevices of the rocks. Curious moray eels often reveal themselves, snooping from behind the rocks. With the passing of the hours and the consumption of the air cylinders, the extraordinary underwater experience ends. Emerging from the surface, one finds oneself with a heart filled with wonder and gratitude for having been able to admire the hidden beauty of the deep sea.

Horseback riding on the beach seems unique to me. You can ride with peace of mind, everything is very controlled and they are looking out for you.
