Le Sec de Senino / Senino's Pinnacle

Off the Cape Senino, this dive site is located at the Southermost end of the Gulf of Girolata. The pinnacle starts around 6m depth and carries on as long cracks along a sheer drop, down to 45m. The flora is absolutely breath-taking: red gorgonian fans, encrusting sponges or spirographs cover the reef. The fauna isn't too bad either: golden seabreams, Doris nudibranchs, moray eels, conger eels, anthias, rock cods, groupers or snappers... look out in the blue, schools of local fish or barracudas are common sightings! Around 30m depth, a few crayfish are hiding in the cracks and holes; if you explore the area attentively you will spot some Spanish lobsters, a species that becomes rare to see in the Med. A great dive accessible to all divers! Have fun!
