Secca del Pilone

A dive in the middle of Bonifacio's mouths. A large lighthouse in the middle of the sea signals the shoal that rises almost to the surface. Strong currents make it perfect for Drift. The best part is not directly below the lighthouse but more to the NE. Very articular shape unique of its kind.

This dive is ideal for meeting big fish. Thick tuna, many snappers and groupers. Towards the end of spring there is no lack of encounters with stingrays and eagle rays.
