Home GUIDED DIVES UNDER “LA GALLERIA”
91014 Scopello - Castellammare del Golfo
"Under La Galleria" is a dive over the rubble of an underwater landslide characterised by caverns, underground passages, rocky arcades and small caves.
There is a wall that drops to 15 m creating the entrance of a small cave characterised by two entrances and by some "windows" which create interesting plays of light and colour.
Coloured star fishes, scorpion fishes, red mullets, morays and small "saragi" populate the sandy bottom. After having explored the one room of the cave, we go along the passage towards the exit, about 10 m. from the entrance.
Then you pass under a rocky arch adorned sponges and false coral, and surrounded by yellow Gorgonia and it is the ideal refuge for fish.
Going up at a depth between 15 and 10 m, we come across some splendid Pinna nobilis shells and a great variety of Nudibranchs.
