Diving in Verzasca River


Diver in crystal clear water of Verzasca river in Ticino - Switzerland. This dive site is dangerous if you don’t respect the security rules. But it’s a fabulous world with rounded rock. You can see across the surface from the bottom of the river. It’s a kind of underwater cathedral.
