Ustica Cirri Cave Dive
High Difficulty – Depth 0/45 meters
Ustica Cirri Cave Dive. From the vertical tunnels of the Pyramids you reach the entrance, a submerged terrace overlooking the sea. To welcome you flashes of cirrus clouds and curious snouts.
Inside the Pyramids site there is one of the most beautiful caves on the island, accessible only by advanced divers given the depth and difficulty of access.
Defined as Cirri Cave, it is actually a cave because the right wall opens into a long breach from which an intense blue light filters. The cave is accessed through a 5-meter vertical tunnel, located 32 meters deep, which opens onto the sandy bottom. Pointing the torch at the walls it is thus possible to see the frantic flicker of the fleeing cirrus clouds: in front of you you have the magnificent vision of the blue breach.
The walls and vault of the cave are covered with colored sponges and madrepores, nudibranchs, cowries, crabs, shrimps and lobsters. From some ravine on the vault the heads of large crabs peep out. The bottom of the cave, strewn with large melon urchins, suddenly declines and sinks down to 60 meters on the sand. Staying on the vault, you exit the cave at about 45m and begin the ascent along the side of the pyramids. The Ustica Cirri Cave Dive is located in zone B of the Ustica Island Protected Marine Area.
Cirri is the name that the people of Ustica give to Zerro musello, and in the cave that bears their name there are thousands of them.
