About This Diving Experience

Lampedusa, with its seabed lends itself to unique and exciting experiences! The island offers fascinating dives where time seems to stop and fish are the real masters of the seabed, one of these is "The Madonna."  

It tells you that about in 1980, a famous underwater photographer (Roberto Merlo), has been the victim of an accident during a dive, the day of the procession of the Madonna di Porto Salvo, the island's patron saint. It was helped promptly by the islanders and saving himself by a miracle decided, as a thank you, to donate the island, in a symbol of protection for all divers and lovers of the sea, a statue of the Madonna and Child (commissioned to the sculptor Giorgio Crosta). Now, at a depth of about 16 meters you can find a "bow", where the foot was placed a bronze statue. Diving is definitely one of the easiest and quiet as well as being shallow, takes place entirely around a rock outcropping seeds. Immerse yourself in this place is always charming and full of magic. Come to Lampedusa and do not dive in La Madonnina, it is like losing a piece of island history.

The waters around Lampedusa are among the richest of the Mediterranean life; here for a singular coincidence between shallow and rich streams of plankton you can watch unforgettable performances. Lobster, octopus, grouper, parrot fish, mantis shrimp, sea bream, moray eels, damsels, sea bass, wrasse and damselfish frequent the coastal areas where sometimes even approaching pelagic fish such as amberjack, tuna and swordfish. Not to be forgotten is the sea turtle (Caretta caretta), which each year is to lay eggs on the best beach and unspoiled, that the small island of the Rabbits; as well as three species of dolphins that enliven the waters off the island: the bottlenose dolphin, the dolphin and the common dolphin and other large marine mammals such as the fin whale, the minke whale and the sperm whale, easily observed in March and April.

Thanks to the variety of its environment, the island also contains many species of marine fauna and flora. On the cliffs there are in fact organisms that live between the earth and the sea, such as periwinkles, mussels with a dark shell, limpets and crabs. Also important are the seagrass, true marine plants located on sandy bottoms, which are an important reservoir of oxygen and protection to many fish and some rare seahorse. The rocky seabed are home to sea sponges. In this place lie organisms like sea slugs, a kind of shellfish. From the point of view of flora, the eastern and southern waters of the island are red gorgonians, but like red coral have become very rare and very deep ..

In addition to marine life, diving become particular, due to the island's shape both outside and under water, an example is the area of the stacks. But, continuing our tour "tourist," we find another dive site, the "Scoglio Pignata" characterized by plateaus that form the steps of various depths, in which we find very often giant lobsters, not far away we find "Horns" . But still .. Punta Chapel, site named after the mountain, then from where start the dive, characterized by a beautiful wall that drops to over 35 m., In which we can admire a particular split. Along the wall, we also can see sponges and cerianthus membranaceus. In return we find a terrace full of crevices and small caves. After returning we ski in a tunnel very charming. The area is ideal for beautiful photographs. Then there I say nothing Elder (in the north side of the island) and what about this dive? Really it is just all to see and discover! We find large boulders that create a path, inside of which we could see moray eels, parrot fish and nudibranchs. The feature of this site is a long cave about 30 meters where we will find a multitude of parazoanthus that with the light create extraordinary effects. In the ascent, we will notice another extraordinary effect caused by us, but we will find out for you, when you come to do this dive! I pass between Punta and Punta Old Chapel, we "Holy Cave", the dive name says it all or not ?!
