Diving in Tuscany

Toscana, also known as Tuscany in many parts of the world, is an area that is located on the west coast of the Italian peninsula, just south and east of Liguria. It is home to just under 4 million people and takes up an area of 23,000 square kilometers (8,900 square miles) The largest and most populous city in the region is the capital, Florence. It is also home to Pisa, famous for its leaning tower and Chianti, the birthplace of the well-known Italian wine that shares its name.

Tuscany may be highly regarded for its rich culture and art, but it also has 270km (168 miles) of coastline, edged by the Ligurian and Tyrrhenian Seas, and seven islands to dive. In these crystalline waters there are shipwrecks from the First and Second World Wars, beautiful reefs and a whole variety of marine life.

The main dive clusters in the area are the Argentario Coast and Rocks in the Surroundings, while Giglio and Giannutri Islands are highly protected, with motorized vehicles banned, meaning they are perfectly tranquil to explore. Then there is Isola d’Elba, where Napoleon was exiled, and Pianosa Island. Expect to see amazing rock formations and even archeological sites in these historic waters.

Wildlife in Tuscany

With its many protected areas, there is an amazing amount of undisturbed underwater life in this region. There are big creatures that are unafraid of divers in many dive sites so seeing the marine life up close and being able to photograph them is a big draw. The area is known for many species but there is an abundance of things like groupers, eagle rays, yellowtails, amberjacks, moonfish, barracudas, lobsters, and crawfish. You can also see some larger, scarcer underwater swimmers here like octopus and, the Mediterranean bamboo shark.
