Ai Giannis’ Wall

DSC03171

Off the cliff at Ithaca’s southeastern cape, a breathtaking wall rises from the depth of 80 meters. Experienced and daring divers can explore the holes and crevices to discover and photograph amazing colorful sponges and corals, tiny crustaceans and nudibranchs, rare grouper species, moray eels and lobsters. Often amberjacks and red snappers appear from the deep to intercept the intruders of their territory. The dive concludes on the shallower part of the wall, where impressive rock formations can be observed.

The Ai Giannis’ wall is an all-time favorite site to free divers who can readily plunge into the deep blue.

The average depth or the dive is 20 m, while the max is 30 m, for advanced level divers. The visibility is usually greater than 30 m and temperature ranges between 17-25 C in summer months, depending on depth. Occasionally there might be weak currents.
