Dives on Elba: Shallow of Coralline
Depth: 0-40 meters
Difficulty level: medium
The Coralline is located at Capo di Fonza, and in this site we can make two different types of diving.
The first one, for the more experienced divers, takes place along the East wall and reaches a maximum depth of 35/40 meters.
At a depth around 30 meters we find a cave and the wall just outside is rich of red coral and white and yellow seafans, that make this dive fascinating and charming.
Going back to the surface, from the cave starts a siphon which reaches up to 15 meters depth. Looking towards in to the blue we often have the chance to spot snapper, barracuda and schools of amberjack and skipjack.
The second dive takes place closer to the coast and is shallower; it is very interesting because there is a chance to see a lot of lair fish such as grouper, moray eels and octopus because of the conformity of the bottom, full of boulders and dens.
