Isola delle Femmine – Itinerary east of the islet

Detail

Explore the fascinating underwater itinerary east of the islet of Isola delle Femmine, just a five-minute boat ride from the picturesque local harbour. This dive, of medium difficulty, will take you down to a depth of 26 metres.

Across a picturesque sandy seabed dotted with a lush meadow of posidonia oceanica, you will discover a vestige of the past: a lead anchor log dating back to Roman times (1st century AD).

Along the way, you will find a ceramic pot from the 18th-19th centuries and an ancient coral-fishing “ingeniousness” dating back to late Antiquity/Byzantine times. Then admire a massive T-anchor from the 4th-6th century AD and a charming Roman Dressel 1 amphora.

The experience culminates with an ascent along a wall teeming with marine life, where you can spot a variety of species, making this dive an unforgettable underwater adventure.
