San Domino & San Nicola, Capraia - Isole Tremiti, Puglia, Italy


The Isole Tremiti island group is an archipelago in the Adriatic Sea, north of Gargano.  I spent a holiday there at the end of August, 2007.  I remember it being a nightmare of a journey getting to the islands as the ferry service wasn't very good.  The excellent dives and beautiful scenery made up for it though.  I dived with Marlin Tremiti Diving Club.

Isola di San Domino
The first dive was at Punta Secca, San Domino, which is number 13 in the map.

Dive #41
Dive 1
Depth: 32.9 m
Time: 47 min
Temp: 18 degrees C

Isola di Caprara
The second dive was at Secca della Grotta della Vedova (the Widow's Shallows), Capraia, number 31 in the map above.  This was a really good dive with a long tunnel.  I was startled when one diver started swimming out in a hurry and I thought something had went wrong, turned out he had just had a panic attack!  At the end of the dive I saw a lovely Flabellina nudibranch.

Dive #42
Depth: 26.8 m
Time: 46 min
Temp: 18 degrees C

Isola San Nicola
