Il Cristo degli Abissi

  • Camogli GE, Italia

Route description

Christ of the Abyss (Cristo degli Abissi) statue, submerged in the waters of the Protected Marine Area of Portofino between the Ligurian towns of Camogli and Portofino, has become one of the most famous and popular diving sites in the world. The statue was placed in the waters of San Fruttuoso di Camogli on 22nd Aug 1954 at a depth of about 18 mt by the Costa family and it's dedicated to the memory of Dario Gonzatti, who was the first Italian to use SCUBA gear in his dives. As it is located in a small bay, there are usually weak or no currents, this spot is considered as an easy dive.
