Posidonia (seagrass) beds, reefs, gorges, caves and sandy bottoms, the island of San Pietro, offers an extraordinary variety for those who love diving, snorkeling and underwater photography.  But the most exhilarating period in which to have these diving experiences is from spring to autumn, when the tuna come to reproduce in the clear, warm waters around the island. They come here following invisible paths in the sea, driven by the currents. From mid-May to mid-June, the period of the tuna fishing, you can dive, accompanied by specialized guides, in the Tonnare of Carloforte (tuna fishery) where you can admire through the nets, the passage of the tuna shoals, some of the individual fish weighing up to 300 kg, but also swordfish, turtles, large amberjacks and sunfish. A spectacle that can also be seen by snorkeling on the surface.
