This year thanks mainly to the addition of a new power cat, Scuba Cat, we have scheduled the “Vintage Full-Day” vintage because we will repeat the full-day as in the 80’s/90’s with lunch on board and stop for at least 3 hours between the first and second dive. The full days for the Cerbicali Islands and Tavolara would be proposed instead of the Extra Long Distace excursion, which will no longer exist.
The full day will also be scheduled for the Lavezzi archipelago.
Marine Park of Cerbicali & Lavezzi Island (Corsica) and of Tavolara Island (Sardegna)
The main differences between the full-day and the standard excursion with two dives is mainly in the time of the stop between the first and second dive which goes from one hour to three hours with enormous advantages on the bottom time and safety in the second dive and lunch on board.
Moreover the full-day will allow you to spend a day enyoing the sea in comfort and relax in one of the most beautiful places in the Mediterranean such as the marine park of the Cerbicali Islands and Arc. of Lavezzi in Corsica and the AMP of Is. Tavolara in Sardinia.
Excursion very appreciated and suitable also for snorkelers, freedivers and sea lovers in general.
Excursion timetable: h. 9,30 – h.17,30

Mount Vercelli is an extinct volcano that from a bottom of about 2000m rises up to 52m from the surface, the submerged mountain is 64miles from Poltu Quatu. Capeo Ferro, only 2 miles from Orso Diving, is the closest land point, about 3h of navigation. It is completely unexplored!
Pochissimi subacquei hanno avuto la fortuna di immergersi in questo luogo. Le spedizioni devono essere organizzate nel minimo dettaglio e le condizioni meteo marine devono essere ottime. La secca è profonda e spesso battuta da correnti molto forti e quindi pedagnare o ancorarsi sul sommo risulta spesso impossibile. Durante l’avvicinamento in barca è praticamente assicurato l’incontro con cetacei che percorrono il canyon di Caprera seguendo le correnti ricche di nutrienti. Gli organismi sessili ricoprono completamente la montagna nelle batimetriche meno profonde, crinoidi come l’Antedon mediterranea sono particolarmente frequenti e le gorgonie rosse Paramuricea clavata oscillano lungo le pareti verticali. Il pesce pelagico si avvicina al Monte Vercelli poichè è l’unica secca nel raggio di miglia e di conseguenza si possono osservare banchi di tonni, ricciole e con un po’ di fortuna verdesche Prionacea glauca e squali grigi del mediterraneo Carcharhinus plumbeus.
