It is called Luidia cilaris and is the seven-pointed starfish. Fragile but voracious. Certainly difficult to meet. The beauty of the stars and the number of their points. And the meaning of that 7. The perfect number.
The KT of Sestri Levante
The KT is here, in Sestri Levante, in the Gulf of Tigullio. Punta Manara and, above all, the wonderful Bay of Silence give a special charm to this place. Almost like a fairytale. Today, the sea is crossed by small and large yachts. At one time, during the Second World War, it was the scene of bloody battles. The memory of these tragedies is preserved in its depths. Many wrecks of military ships lie below. Anemones, sponges and other encrusting organisms have covered them, giving them a new life.

The ghost network of Isola delle Femmine
An annoying wind, coming from the south, is making the sea in front of Isola delle Femmine slightly rough. It will certainly make difficult the operations of the team of divers who today will go down into the water to try to recover a ghost net, stranded on a large boulder at a depth of about 50 meters.
The monkfish of the Portofino lighthouse
A five-foot-long monkfish rested lazily on a boulder at the Portofino lighthouse. Any dive turns into a memorable and fun day.
A dive on the Haven

The memory of a dive on the Haven on the day of the thirtieth anniversary of her sinking.
