East of the canal that leads to San Fruttuoso, a recess into the promontory wall that houses thousands of seagulls gives the dive site its name.
The buoy in front of the external cave is positioned on a 10-meter seabed, and in front of this, a wall begins its descent to a depth of 36 meters, where we find a splendid grotto completely covered with yellow cluster anemones (Parazoanthus) and red coral (Corallium Rubrum). Continuing the dive, with the wall still to our left, an expanse of red gorgonians (Paramuricea Clavata) marks the beginning of our ascent.


At a depth of 22 meters, the interior of an extremely beautiful open-ended cave offers a myriad of shrimp that run for cover at the first sign of illumination.
As we exit, we are amazed by the passage of large sea breams wrapped in a cloud of tiny bubbles rising from the first cave.
We begin our return with the wall to our right, maintaining a depth of 12 meters. Here we can find large moray eels and curious conger eels in the numerous cracks, and they accompany us into a recess covered with yellow cluster anemones (Parazoanthus). But the show isn't over yet.
Continuing at 10 meters we come across a crack that leads us to a large cave that opens into a splendid amphitheater. To the left we end up in a cul-de-sac beach, and to the right a siphon leads us to the surface. Here we can remove our masks and admire the splendid stalactites and stalagmites. Then we put our masks back on, descend to 6 meters, and exit the cave to conclude our dive.
