Three Anchors

It is a wall diving suitable for all divers, as it does not have any particular difficulty. However, it is advisable to check the presence of current and to check during the dive the maximum planned depth because the bottom of the wall degrades up to 52 meters. Descending along the top of the gavitello we find ourselves on a steppe from 12-14 meters down to 29-30 meters.

Degree of difficulty Middle-Low for both routes
- Medium, with current presence
Maximum Depth23 meters (green route)
36 meters (red route)
- Average if current is present to the south
Duration35 minutes (green route)
45 minutes (red route)
Interest Not to be missed
Protected sea areaA


With the wall on our left, we approach three majestic boulders whose gutters offer shelter to shrubs, shrimp paraphernalia and colorful crevices. Few meters later, there are 3 unusually adorned anchors that are superimposed on one another. Exiting a few meters perpendicular to the wall we arrive at a second rocky slope that ranges from 32-33 meters down to 48-52 meters. Just at that point from above you can see a protuberance that offers shelter to lobsters, curly saetta and diadem and majestic trine of sea. Continuing to have the least deeper rib on our left, we encounter three long vertical crevices on the parade; the first one offers shelter to saraghi, the third to shrimp parapandalo. After a very colorful rock roof, we encounter a small boulder cliff, frequently frequented by saragh and corvine, and we come to a rock tongue that falls over 30 meters. This natural wall could be the point of return to our gavitello that we could go swimming along the edge of the barn between 9-12 enjoying a “flutter” between saraghi and duotti. Finally, it reaches the plateau from 9 to 6 meters and is bordered by the cliff. Here we can find parrot fish, salsa, goups, octopus and murine. If we decide to continue diving, over the rock language we find on the left in a canyon that perpendicular to the cliff of the coast rises up to a few meters. Following this natural funnel we come under Capo Murro di Porco, where a few meters deep, to the right, an oblique crevice of big saraghi and, to the left, a deep deep grotto that enters for dozens of meters in the rock. We can enter without risk as the cave is large, without bifurcations and with the rocky bottom. Moreover, our bubbles can not cause any damage as the vault of the cave is almost on the surface and therefore suffers from the wave motion. From the cave we take advantage of the minutes of the safety stop to observe the colorful wall on our left is the extreme tip of Capo Murro di Porco.
