Walls, shallows , caves and wrecks... the best place for divers.
The depths of San Vito lo Capo lend themselves very well to diving, many shallows are within a few hundred meters distance from the coast and offer a splendid setting, suitable for underwater photography.
In some areas (in a just 40 meters distance) it's possible to find small branches of red corals. Very sought as photographical subjects.
Kent, the Ship of the Korans near San Vito Lo Capo.
It is a wreck of a ship from Cyprus about 80 meters long, sank due to a fire in 1978, dubbed the "ship of Korans" for his load of books.
It is located about half a mile, in the same Gulf of the Tonnara of San Vito Lo Capo. It is in a sandy bottom at about 48 meters depth with the bow facing the coast.
The more experienced people can visit the inside of the boat, in its proximity it is possible to meet moray eels, conger eels, groupers, scorpion fishes and shoals of bream.
All the seabed around San Vito is rich in evidence of ancient trades, amphorae of different ages and especially anchors (IV century BC - V century AD).
The richness of the finds is proof of the importance of the Mediterranean sea routes in Capo Egitarso, 2.000 years ago.
An Arabic Norman wreck (dated around the year 800) sank at a depth of about 25 meters in front of the boss San Vito; studied, photographed and recovered in 1993-95, it is still interest of the World Cultural Heritage.
