Second year with mask even out of the water….
The season begins in June. For the second consecutive year, Felimare picta shows itself in all its “grandeur”, in many dive sites and also with different liveries. Felimida krohni is constantly present in the northern and southern part of the Conero coast. Average visibility is not exceptional and water temperature is lower than usual until late July.

Usually it’s one of the most lively months, but not this year and probably it’s also due to the water temperature. Crustaceous are the animals more present on the reef.
