Secca della Colombara

 

The dive site Secca della Colombara has something special to offer divers of all levels. It has beautiful and interesting things to see from a shallow depth of only 3m down to an impressive 50m! So deep divers this sites for you too!

 

Whilst wall diving the best part of the reef is along the west slope, which is by far the most beautiful part with a sudden drop to 24m along a large plateau. Relax and hover whilst taking in the views surrounding you including large bronzed groupers of up to 40kg, giant breams and lobsters. Further on within a large canyon, divers can spot magnificent red gorgonians spread out wide and majestic along the drops off.
