Diving         Great Interest: Marine Wildlife 
  • Spot: 200 metri Sud-Est di Riomaggiore
  • Required license: Advance
  • Kind of Seabed: shoal
  • Duration: 1 hour/s

Horse saddle shaped shoal at about 12 meters of depth. Going down along the wall, at about 18 meters, you will start to observe several gorgonians, until you will reach the 30 meters where it is possible to find dens with congers and morays.
This area is characterized by a strong western current which, besides guaranteeing a very good visibility, gives the opportunity to meet greater amberjacks, common dentexes, and skipjack tuna.
