Portofino Light­house

ITALY

Sport Diver - - 100 Best Dice Sites - —Is­abella Maf­fei

Fa­mous for the big groupers that can be ob­served here, the Portofino Light­house is a unique scene, es­pe­cially dur­ing early morn­ing or sun­set dives. At these times, some­thing ex­tra­or­di­nary hap­pens: Groupers and morays come to­gether to hunt oc­to­puses. Divers stay on the bot­tom at 40 feet and wait. Oc­to­puses try to find a safe place to re­cover, but morays don’t per­mit it, stand­ing pre­cisely in front of their den. The groupers be­gin in­cur­sions im­me­di­ately, and most of the time, some oc­to­puses fall vic­tim to the hunt. Fight to sur­vive — it’s the law of the sea.
