Greetings, everyone! Gianni here. We recently had the pleasure of hosting the renowned underwater videographer, and our friend Tommy Vuylsteke, who is widely recognised as an international maestro in underwater cinematography. We felt that now is an opportune moment to introduce him here and delve into a glimpse of his remarkable portfolio.
Tommy joined us onboard our dive boat Atlantis for some dives on Pasito Blanco reef before embarking on his upcoming underwater filming endeavors in Asia. He was genuinely captivated by the favorable conditions we have here in Gran Canaria and relished the diving experiences he shared with our team on board our boat. During his stay on board, we had the chance to chat with him and learn more about his journey and though we would share a little here with you all.
