Maggia

The wild river Maggia in the canton Ticino has one of the prettiest dive sites in Switzland. The rocky underwater landscape is as pretty as the famous Verzasca river. The Maggia is also less dangerous for diving because it does not have that sneaky rapids. Usually it also has more fish. Mostly this river is about knee-deep but some few basins can be up to 10 meters. September 2001 to July 2012, 89 photos.
