SECOND DIVE OF THE DAY AT VACCA ISLAND
After our first dive of the day (see Corsica Diving: Cerbicale Islands I), and after resting a little on the boat and having a hot drink we go to the second dive point today, from La Vacca towards the coast. We move just 300 m to the W. We drop anchor and go down.
We are the same group as in the previous dive and as in the first one, we enjoy a rich seagrass bottom with great visibility.
Rocky bottom landscape with posidonia
We also see many groupers, brown meagre, scorpora camouflaged with the environment, a bank of very beautiful amberjacks that got very close,…

umbrina cirrosa fish in the bottom holes

As in the previous dive, we also enjoy a lot the macro life; we see many nudibranchs, a small crab in an anemone … In general we also have a very nice and fun dive.
Cool crab in an anemone
Worm Protula tubularia type (it forms long calcareous tubes attached to the rock and plumes of white and reddish colors at the other end), beautiful!
nudibranch type of flabellina
Very happy, we return to Palombaggia beach where each one takes their equipment and bottles from the ship to the club. We clean the equipment and go for lunch while it gets a bit dryer.
We must say that despite the fact that we only dived one day in this reserve and in 1 islet of the 6, we found it a really interesting place to discover and worth to stop here to dive for one or several days (if we have time) during our holidays in Corsica.
