Zio Gennaro Rock is situated at the southernmost tip of the Taormina dive area, where the steep wall meets the bay of Spisone. Huge schools of black anthias form along this area. As you drift along the drop off, keep an eye out into the blue. In certain conditions there might form a down current near the wall, so pay attention. In spite of the nearby crowds, it remains seldom visited and has retained an atmosphere of virgin beauty.
Start your dive on the outside wall and head northwards. At 30 meter there are huge overhangs, caves and dark gullies, swathed in sea fans. This scene becomes increasingly colourful and dramatic towards the corner. At the corner it is worth doubling back to take in the shallow part of this wall. Between 25 m and the surface is a large chimney which should not be missed. It is home to countless blue shrimps. At the last corner, the platform at 5 meters will help divers for their safety stop. This is best left to strong and experienced divers.
