Le club de plongée Orso de Poltu Quatu est situé au cœur du Parc Marin de La Maddalena, à seulement 2 miles de l’île de Caprera, à 16 miles de l’île de Lavezziet à 18 miles de l’île de Tavolara. Cette zone est bien connue comme le « Sanctuaire méditerranéen »

Long Distance
This area is divided in two zones: the back sides of the Islands of Caprera and of The MonaciIsland Island. The dives of Caprera are effectuated near the coast (ideal also for snorkeling), on sea grounds and walls quickly reaching the depth of 40 meters. These dives are ideal both for Open Water Divers and for the Advanced Divers.

They’ll be surprised by the morphologic beauty of this grounds with enormous granite   rocks and monoliths forming passages and small caves: a true labyrinth of tunnels, where underwater life of any kind abounds. In particular the dives in the sea of Caprera have two great advantages: on one side, they are sheltered from the common north-west wind; on the other, their position guarantees the absence of strong drifts.

The second zone is located behind the Monaci Island, where the so called « Secche dei Monaci » are located: 8 dive itineraries with nothing to envy to the renowned dives of the Mouths of Bonifacio, showing very similar characteristics to these. In order to appreciate and enjoy these dives (Secca di Grecale, Secca Dorata, Secca di Maestrale, Secca delle Colonne, La Spacca delle Corvine, Secca dell’Uva, Greco dei Monaci and Secca dei Monaci Meda) for the longest time, we suggest the use a mixture of Enriched Air Nitrox 32%.

The dive spots of the Island of Caprera and of the Monaci Island are only 4-6 miles far away from Poltu Quatu

Towards north, to the Bonifacio Strait, there is a dozen of dive spots between  Corsica, with its Marine Park of Lavezzi, and Sardinia, with its  Marine Park of the Archipelago de La Maddalena. Dives in the corsic area are characterized by a huge quantity of fish. At the “City of the Groupers” of Lavezzi, famous all over the world, giant groupers very friendly with the divers. On the shoals of “Ponente”, “Pilone”, “Banco”,  “Ostro” and “Sperduti” you’ll be sure to see a lot of typical lair fishes like groupers, shadefish, breams, rocklings and morays, as well as free water fishes like amberjacks, dentexes and barracudas. All these dives have a maximum depth of 30 meters, with an average of nearly 15 meters. Therefore they are appropriate for Open Water Divers too. On the other side, the Sardinian area is characterized by the beauty of its underwater paths. The shoals of “Spargi”, “Mezzogiorno”, “Budelli” and “Razzoli” have a highly spectacular morphology, with castles of granite raising up from the sandy ground, in vertical walls of 20-30 meters, covered by the greatest red gorgons of the Mediterranean already at the depth of 15 meters. 

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 of Is. Tavolara in Sardinia.
Excursion very appreciated and suitable also for snorkelers, freedivers and sea lovers in general.

« Secca del Papa » in the Marine Reserve of the Island of Tavolara is a great dive in all aspects (morphology, colors, quantity and variety of flora and fauna) with an average depth of about 30 m, so not for open water, we recommend the use of NITROX 32. Secca del Papa is 18 miles away.

Two new fantastic dives at the Island of the Toro in the Archipelago of the Cerbicali in Corsica will astonish also the most exacting divers… Finally a valid alternative to the very well known City of the Groupers!

The dive at the Arco del Toro is a wonderful shoal, 2Km north of the Island of Toro, in open sea, with its top at 17m and its bottom at 38m. The name comes from two suggestive arcades at the depth of about 30m, completely covered by giant red gorgons.

The second dive is the Secca del Toro, 700m far away from the homonymous island. Its top is at 3m, while the maximum depth at 35m. It’s an ideal dive also for beginners, especially because in the first 15m it is possible to see all typical Mediterranean flora and fauna.

Two dives at the top and extremely full of fish ad colours, known and attended by very few divers, absolutely not to miss!

The Cerbicali Islands are 22ml far from Poltu Quatu, about ten miles north of the Island of Lavezzi.
