I am a diving since 1976 and my passion is underwater photography. By means of my loyal Nikonos 3 I enjoyed with dipping in various seas of the world.
Since 1987, when I became a PADI instructor, I created and managed Rome’s Moana Diving Club, and I carried out either didactics or pleasant activity in many sport centers. I found also two more Diving centers: one in Toscana (Argentario) and another in Kenya (Malindi).
I am a PADI instructor, Master Scuba Diver, deep specialty, enriched air, underwater navigator, night, wreck, underwater photographer, search & recovery, and IDEA instructor with Divemedic specialty.
Gas Blender PTA certificated and “First aid and maintenance” Coltri compressors.
During last year I approached technical diving and carried out also “trimix” diving activity.
Today I am in Zanzibar in order to live this new and fascinating adventure.
See is my life and it is there, on a beach of Rome’s coast, that I met Walter. With him I experienced diving for the first time and discovered this wonderful world that mother nature gave to us. In 1989 began my adventure… and I like to call it “the journey”.
My first diving patent was O.W.D. travelling round the world in order to discover new see sounding-depths: Thailand, Red See, Kenya, Croatia, Costa Rica, Spain and so on. I pursued my education as Dive Master, up to the patent of Assistant Instructor. Together with Walter we built up our beloved diving center, our “button-hole flower”, Moana Diving Club. Here, moreover than as assistant instructor, I played also a role of responsible in tourist affairs regarding groups’ organization in Italy and abroad. Under the spell of Africa we opened a Diving Center in Malindi and, among elephants and barracuda, started here with this new wonderful life experience, rich of impressive sounding-depths. Few years later we opened another Diving Center in Porto Ercole (Toscana) and now, very happy and heartedly, we come back to Africa with a new Diving Center in Zanzibar, the Nakupenda Diving Center.
My name is Hassan. I was born here in Jambiani and since I was a little child I began loving sea. My father, an experienced fisher, always took me with him even beyond the coralline barrier. Thanks to him I learned sailing. During many years in my experience by working in hotel trade I took the tourists to know this wonderful sea, up to date… Hassan Captain from Nakupenda Diving Center.
