Some people, often without knowing it, suffer from the oscillating movements of the boat, this causes nausea and discomfort, ruining a magnificent experience. If you think you may have this condition ask your doctor if you can take tablets for seasickness.
Punta Campanella is the head land that divides the Gulfs of Naples and Salerno. Majestic and imposing, with great walls of rock that come right down to sea level. Below sea level, however, is one of the great diving experiences of the Mediterranean, encountering a wide range of sea life and vegetation. You will also get to see great variations of the natural environment whilst on the dive, vast areas full of caverns, plateaus covered in rich vegetation and red corals, over hanging walls rich with yellow gorgonians and small caves. To preserve the biodiversity of this area, it was made into a “protected sea area” in 1990.
This is one of the most beautiful dives from all the options here on our peninsula, and for a particularly good reason, upon entering the cave you will be surrounded by a thousand shades of blue, and all around by magnificent stalagmites and stalactites. And just to up the beauty even more, the wide range of life you will find under water is spectacular.
Enchanting droplets of light await you in the natural caves of the Isca Islet, situated in the protected sea area of Punta Campanella, famous for being an area of reflection and refuge of Eduardo De Filippo. The largest cave, known as the “Cave of Isca” was discovered completely by accident in the 70’s, and inside you will find a stunning display of stalactites. And you will be sure to spot a lovely array of fish and molluscs.
Situated between a spectacular garden of red gorgonians on the north wall and the statue of the Virgin Mary to east, she sits on the seabed at a depth of 12 metres and is the protector of all who work at sea, this area is rich with sea life including snappers, white breams, sea bass, groupers, and barracuda! Please note there is a further €5 ticket required for this dive, additional to the cost.
What makes our snorkeling special compared to others? The presence of a marine biologist who meter after meter you will make you discover the biodiversity of our waters and will tell you about our enchanting territory. A unique experience not to be missed!Discover snorkeling tour
I've been diving for 15 years... with dry suits in the San Juan Islands of Washington State to Tee shirts in Bonaire and Roatan, The GBR, The Coral Sea and Poor Knights Island, NZ. My dive with DIve Master Vittoria on the Banco Santa Croce site was a Top Three Dive for me. With Tuna feeding on schools of sardines back dropped to beautiful Mediterranean coral... this dive had it all. The Professional, experienced and fun shore crew at Punta Campanella Diving Center made this a perfect day.
