Description

Located between Marines de Sisco and Erbalunga, this point is well known to divers.
Cape Sagro is an anchorage where the ancient Roman fleet landed the goods for this part of Cap Corse.

This site is of outstanding beauty and it is not unusual to see diving teams of experienced divers in full photographic exploration. Ideal for comfortable diving school or exploration diving and for all levels!

The Circus: superb series of rocks, at least for two levels experienced. The place takes its name from a set of circular rock that starts a background of 38 meters and up to 44 meters. There are some nice size grouper, pretty mostelles and all Mediterranean species. In some seasons you meet spider crabs
U Rigone: rocks 35 meters for levels 2 and older, heavily colonized by a family of groupers who cohabit nicely with conger, moray eels and brown meager.
The P47 Miomo: an American fighter in a perfect state of preservation, 20 meters deep. Many brown meager, groupers, badèches in residence under the wings.
The Insuma "Gunboat" a luxurious yacht of 35 meters long requisitioned by the Germans to hunt submarines. The wreck lies at a depth of 45 meters, straight and in good condition. The gun mount is still there, its two propellers, anchors and their chains too.

Situé entre les Marines de Sisco et Erbalunga, ce cap est bien connu des plongeurs.
Le cap Sagro : mouillage antique où la flotte romaine débarquait les marchandises pour cette partie du Cap Corse.

Ce site est d´une beauté remarquable et il n´est pas rare de croiser des palanquées de plongeurs chevronnés en pleine exploration photographique. Idéal pour une plongée confortable, d´école ou d´exploration et pour tous les niveaux !

Le cirque : superbe série de roches, au minimum pour niveaux 2 expérimentés. L´endroit tient son nom d´un ensemble de roches de forme circulaire qui débute sur un fond de 38 mètres et jusqu’à 44 mètres. On y trouve des mérous de belles tailles, de jolies mostelles et toutes les espèces méditerranéennes. A certaines saisons on y rencontre des araignées de mer.

U Rigone : roches à 35 mètres pour les niveaux 2 et plus, fortement colonisée par une famille de mérous qui cohabitent gentiment avec congres, murènes et corbs.
Le P47 de Miomo : un chasseur américain dans un parfait état de conservation, à 20 mètres de profondeur. Nombreux corbs, mérous, badèches en résidence sous les ailes.
L´Insuma « La canonnière » : un luxueux yacht de plaisance de 35 mètres de long réquisitionné par les Allemands pour chasser les sous-marins. L´épave repose sur un fond de 45 mètres, bien droite et en bon état de conservation. L´affût du canon est toujours présent, ses deux hélices, ses chaînes et ses ancres aussi.
