Elena Giampaolino

Elena Giampaolino, the owner the Isla Diving, was born in Rome and since she was a little girl she loves the sea and she likes to explore the ocean, spending entire summers in the water. At 16 she started to dive with the scuba and followed the PADI's Open Water Diver Course; from that moment she decided never to stop diving. She continued her training to become a PADI Divemaster and SSI Instructor. Her job as an instructor gives her a lot of satisfaction and she finds a great joy in transmitting to others, young and old, her love for diving. Enthusiastic teacher, her students not only learn the technique, but become captivated by her passion.

Paolo Tealdo

Paolo Tealdo, vice president of the Italian Federation of Teaching Sport Fishing and Underwater Activities (Fipsas), is an instructor and dive guide of enormous experience, skillful connoisseur of the backdrops of St. Peter's Island. Someone says that class is not water... for him it is just the opposite, and this is a source of pride! He teaches Fipsas old-style. His marine fighter zest has softened since he became an instructor of instructors and the president of the Cavanesians's Diving Club of Ivrea. Realizing that diving is no longer what it once was, he embraced the recreational aspects that the discipline has to offer. To be at the top during the dry-activities, full of dialogue about the aquatics characteristics of female customers, and to earn the privilege of accompanying female scuba-divers in amazing underwater excursions, his helpfulness, kindness and happiness have become proverbial in the Isla Diving team, as his rigorously brief-style swimsuit. He knows how to lead divers to discover the most beautiful diving spots and find all forms of marine life. Nothing can quench his thirst for diving!
