For the little story :
Dominique took his first steps in tourism in the footsteps of his father and his grandfather, who, from their village of Cargèse, crisscrossed the winding roads of Corsica in order to make discover the wonders of summer visitors.
But it was towards the sea that his gaze had turned since childhood and in 1989, he decided to start the maritime adventure with a first boat, which could accommodate 7 persons, Le Grand Bleu.
There, he began to show to his amazed passengers the caves of the creeks of Piana, the rocky faults of the Scandola Reserve, the inaccessible village of Girolata and all the natural treasures he had discovered from his younger age.
Thirty years later, he continues to navigate inside the very heart of the fantastic sites of the Gulf of Porto. With the same enthusiasm, he continues to tell the story of this beautiful places. This long experience make him a reference in terms of navigation in the waters of the region. This is surely why he succeeds in sliding his boat through the narrowest passages, from the small caves of the Capo Rosso to the faults of the Scandola Nature Reserve.
