- Diving: from the shore/rubber boat
- Difficulty: Average
- Maxi Depth: -45 meters
The wreck is broken in two sections, oriented in a different way: the first placed diagonally over the coast between 22 and 35 meters deep, while the second perpendicularly to the same between 36 and 52 meters, with the bow to the shore and the stern to the sea. It Is possible to visit only the first of the two sections because of the bad conditions of the second that could lead to the collapse of the
structures. The Wreck of Cannitello is characterized by the presence of a fauna Sciafila (lover of the dark) in the interior parts and different species of fish, invertebrates and algae with decidedly opposite habits (lovers of light and water), on the structures of keel and Of the hull facing the surface. The environment is so rich and diversified, that it is possible to discover also thanks to the high visibility of the w
ater. Among the many forms of life that have colonized the structures of the old ship predominates a yellow madrepore (Pruvoti leptosammia), which covers entire parts of the hull. Frequently meet groups of young banded Sargos, Bugs and Castagnole. Every inch of hull is covered by sponges and algae, which is associated with a microcosm made of small blue nudibranchs.
