Capraia - Tuscan Islands

Capraia is an island of volcanic origin that forms part of the Tuscan Archipelao.  It is 62 km from the city of Livorno by sea and 32 km northwest of the island of Elba  I did four dives on this trip: il Turco, lo Scoglione and le Formiche. 

I particularly remember diving at the site called il Turco.  We were diving during the breeding season of the Black Seabream (Spondyliosoma cantharus) and there were many of these fish swimming around protecting their eggs.
