Scuba Diving Spots: 7

Lessons for children from 10 years old (8 years old for the Bubble Maker course, booking on site only).

Flora and fauna: the ocean is bursting with life: sea rays, moray eels, conger eels, groupers, coloured sponges, etc. Plenty of spots to explore, in creeks or at the foot of the clliffs.

A few examples of spots:

  • “Finale di Pollina”: the dive takes place opposite the steep headland, beginning along the anchor line. The currents bring in a great variety of fish – you’re likely to see sea bream, grouper and barracuda. The rocky headland has a ravine that goes from 9 to 18 metres deep.
  • “Campanari”: the highest of these sharp underwater rocks sits at a depth of 10 metres, and the deepest is 30 metres down. You’re likely to come across fascinating shoals of fish, as well as crabs, eels, nudibranches and octopus. If you’re lucky you may spot a specimen of false black coral called Savalia Savaglia.
  • “Kalura”: the Kalura promontory, with its Byzantine tower, is one of the most beautiful spots on the coast of Cefalu. The dive along the headland is suitable for beginners, but more experienced divers will also find it of interest. You’ll come across octopus, barracuda, and numerous shoals of damsel fish from August to October. The bay has been used since Roman times, and has the status of “archeological site” because you can still find amphora and other remains from the ancient port. This is a truly fascinating dive!
  • “La Roche Ivre”: the rock gets its name from the boat that sank on the rock with a cargo of wine. the dive takes place just behind the walls of the old city centre, close to the fortifications. When the tide turns and the current gets stronger, you’ll find plenty of fish to swim with. The dive along the rock face is the opportunity to feel the cold fresh water currents that emerge from the rock.
  • “Secca Grande”: this is a rocky structure on the sandy sea bottom, where all the small fish gather. An easy dive that takes you through a succession of canyons made up of rock and posidonia plants.
  • “Sette Fratti”: the dive takes place around Settefrati, with a chance to admire fabulous views of Cefalu and the coastline as the boat takes you out to the diving spot. The dive takes you round the seven main rocks (in reality there are far more!) in a labyrinth full of holes and fissures. The zone is home to several species of sea slugs, including a large colony of Flabellina.
  • “Secca della Madonna”: not far from Settefrati is a series of pyramid shaped rocks on the sandy sea floor, The rocks are covered with sea anemones. The tip of the rocks is 9 metres down, and the deepest go down as far as 18 metres. The result is a series of canyons that have become home to the white grouper. The ravines are home to moray eels, conger eels and sea bream – one of our favourites!

Distance: Average time of transfer to spots: by minibus to the port of Cefalu or by dinghy, straight from Club Med: around 5 to 25 minutes by boat from the port and from 10 to 40 minutes from Club Med.
