Secca d'Africa

Length: 200m
Depth: 40m
Duration: 50 minuti
Difficulty:

This fantastic dive begins north of Punta Gavazzi, right next to the buoy that indicates the presence of one of the two underwater archaeological trails of the island. In fact, right at the beginning of the tour, at a depth of about 10 meters, divers will be able to see some anchors belonging to the Roman and Bizantine era. After overcoming these findings, the tour will continue along a portion of seabed of great beauty characterized by numerous rocks that create perfect dens for several fish species such as the saddled seabream (Oblada melanura), the bream (Diplodus sp), groupers (Epinephelus marginatus) and the marvelous brown meagre (Sciaena umbra).
Even here you can admire fantastic play of lights between arches of rock and canyons that will lead us to greater depths, up to a sandy bottom at around 40 meters. Once you get to this depth, the natural crevices allow us to discover the typical shrimp of Ustica (Parapandalo), present in several underwater caves of the island. The Secca d’Africa is perfect for any type of diver, thanks to the biological richness that we can find at any depth ...from the first meters of water up to lower depths.
