Stefano Nicolini - Waterproof Guide
Stefano, Italian from origin, lives currently in Rome. He has extensively travelled through Argentina and other South American countries and lived in Buenos Aires for 12 years. He has been working for over 25 years as freelance journalist and photographer, specializing in travel, nature and culture.
Whales have always been the main topic and passion of his work, with dozen of publications focused on this subject. He produced over 250 reportages that were published in the most appreciated international travel and wildlife magazines.
He is currently deeply involved in “Project Snorkeling”. Focused on the underwater observation of great creatures without the help of scuba diving. It is a photo journalistic and artistic project aiming to show how many possibilities our oceans, crystal rivers and swamps can still provide to get a close contact and comprehend wildlife for all those that can rely only on mask, snorkel and fins.
Stefano has no doubts to consider the ocean of the Valdez Peninsula, in the Argentinian side of the Patagonian coast, the most rewarding location in the world for swimming with the Southern Right whales and enjoying the closest contacts with the queens of the seas.
He loves to share this amazing experience with you !
Stefano will be your expert guide on the following expedition:
Snorkeling with Southern Right Whales
"Southern Rights in the Peninsula Valdez is almost like those XVII century paintings of whaling where the whales almost outnumber the whalers. I have travelled here since 1993 and I don't know any other place like that."
