For 3 days we were able to dive in the Neptuno underwater park, where a number of structures and objects have been arranged to tour and photograph. The operator is on the Nahuel Huapi, approximately at km 5.9 along Bustillo Avenue, near the city of San Carlos de Bariloche. To go to the park, the dives are on the coast and the entrance to the water is very simple since there is a ramp very sheltered from the wind and the waves of the lake.

Again I was able to share dives with Juanchi Dibbern, a great companion with whom we have already dived together many times in southern Argentina. There was also an editing and composition workshop by Belen Etchegaray. The meeting was excellent, there was a lot of camaraderie and, how could it be otherwise, there was a lot of food! After the meeting, I took the opportunity to do a few more dives, this time on the Peninsula and Isla Gallina and film a little. The video will be including it in another post.
