Capo Enfola and Scoglio della Nave is a boat accessible salt water dive site, located in Portoferraio, Italy.

Capo Enfola and Scoglio della Nave

Approximately a half hour navigation from Marciana Marina is Capo d’Enfola, and a rocky promontory known as the ‘Scoglio della Nave’. The dive can start on the north side of the rock where the seabed descends fairly gently to a depth of 22metres. The exploration then continue along a steep wall that descends 47 meters. The edge has various breaches and splits in which lobsters, moray eels and octopuses usually hide. Particularly beautiful are the Cerianthus commonly growing in the more detrital seabed areas and that stretch their crowns of long and coloured tentacles in the blue water.

At the base of the cliff there is a large breach with walls and vault covered by a great number of sciophilous organisms, such as Sertella septentrionalis and Myriapora truncata, forming a complex calcareous structure. The peculiar morphology of the seabed in this area calls for various dives following the many underwater itineraries.
