Eleonora Bilei, Instructor & Guide


Eleonora Bilei

I was born in Italy, where I grew up. Ever since I was a kid, I always dreamed of travelling and discover the world. I discovered the amazing submarine world just few years ago. But ever since, the wonder of the water is always calling me. After I graduated as a teacher, I finally became a scuba instructor in the Dominican Republic, and after a couple of years spent traveling in the Caribbean sea, I began to realise that "diving is not just in warm water "...so, challenge accepted! Here I am, in Iceland, falling in love with the island and its nature. I have a big passion for the marine life and it's conservation, as well for outdoor adventures. Being Italian, I have a big passion for cooking and good food.
