Zampa di gatto (Cat's Paw)
Type of Dive
Also in this case it is a shoal, separated from the seabed by a sandy plateau; starting from a small outcropping rock you reach a depth of about thirty meters, where you can find gorgonians and sponges, followed by a wall that descends to over fifty meters and offers shelter to lobsters and moray eels.
It is a very particular dive in that, current permitting, it can be carried out all around the smallest and most external rock. Initially you come across the large granite boulders that distinguish the whole island, which descend underwater from the surface, on which the first yellow gorgonians are found, which at around 30 meters join the red ones. Very often on the ascent it happens to meet dentex or barracuda.
