Relitto di Cannitello - Alvah

On a seabed between 30 and 55m, at the narrowest point of the Strait of Messina, lies the wreck of Cannitello, known as “U Vapuri“ and identified with the ship “Alvah“, sunk in the early 1900s. The hull is placed upside down on the seabed that degrades rapidly, divided into two sections, and is covered in life!

Thanks to the strait’s currents, numerous coelenterates encrust the hull of the wreck, surrounded by big banks of fish and inhabited by crabs, starfishes, sponges, and nudibranchs.
