THE  KT12 Wreck
The wreck of the german, armed cargo ship was sunken the 10th of June 1943. The torpedo fired by the british submarine Safari broke away the bow of the vessel and lies about 300 yard/meter away from the main wreck. This wreck is considered one of the most beautiful of the mediterrean sea.
THE NASELLO WRECK
This wreck is a 150ft/45mt. long german cargo vessel sunken in the 3rd of march 1943 by the british submarine Safari. It's depth is 110ft/33mt. and she rest on her port side on a sandy bottom

THE KT12 BOW
When the KT12 was torpedoed the third torpedo hit the boat on the very bow and snatched it off. The bow lies now on 33 meter of depth about 300 meters/yards away from the main wreck and is not so often visitated as the bow is difficoult to find due his size. Not beeing frequently dived this small part of the wreck has often big amount of fishes and is generally a very scenic dive.
GROTTA DELLE OSTRICHE
The Cavern of the Oysters is the entrance to a huge submerged cavern system. This cave has his name from the ancient fossilized oysters covering some part of the walls This is are a safe and easy first step to get a first impression of the world of cavern and cave diving

LE GROTTACE
Another "shallow" dive below a steep rock wall with some caves, thus his name. The sandy bottom on 50ft/.15mt. is covered with some huge, house size rocks.
GROTTA LA GALLERIA
Another entrance to a vaste cave system still under exploration. We limit us on the first meters to enjoy the beautiful rock formations

PUNTA NERA DI OSALA

SECCA DI MARIOLU
This shoal has on the outside a steep wall coming up from 130ft/40mt. to 80ft/24mt. This shoal offers a broad variety of marine life and may povide encounters with big fishes.

SECCA DI SU BARONE
SECCA  DI PESCIERA

While Secca di Pesciera is one of our favorite places for night dives as there we encounter a surprising amount of marine life, Secca di Su Barone always gifts us a surprise to see. the shallow depth of both shoals make them perfect for every diver and level..
THE WALL
A long, vertical wall dropping down to 120ft/35mt. and covered with abundant marine life. This dive site is remote and due it's exposed location, ther may be currents and rough waters.

LE GORGONIE
An underwater wall that start at 80 feet and come up to 55 feet is a scenic dive with a good amount of sea life, especially medium sized goupers. The see weed coverd rocks and sea fan covered walls make this dive a "mystic" experience.
SECCA DI PUNTA NERA
This shoal made of volcanic rocks is very long and we are still discovering new dive sites there. As the shoal start at almost 40 meters/120 feet up to about 33 meters/100 feet this dives are only for divers with a deep diver speciality certification.

BIANCAS GARDEN
Named after a long time client who was with us on a discovery dive,
this dive site impresses with its abundance of sea fans and sponges that makes it looks like a garden. Starting at 16 meters/ 50 feet, this ancient volcanic lava flow gently slopes down to about 24 meters/75 feet in a labyrinth of canyons and crevices.
SECCA DI CALA GINEPRO
Somehow similar to Secca di Punta Nera, this shoal is much flatter with a average depth of 35 meters/100 ft,but full of small canyons and crevices, building a perfect habitat for marine life. As the shoal start at almost 40 meters/120 feet up to about 33 meters/100 feet this dives are only for divers with a deep diver speciality certification.
