Coast of Procida.: Just about in the centre of the Ischian canal are the
'formiche di Vivara', marked by harbour lanterns (2366) and a sea light marker (Cardinale
W). The depth here is a minimum 4 metres. The Canal of Procida is bounded to the North by
Cape Miseno (with the town of Baccoli) the coast here is shallow and sandy, as are the
lake and port of Miseno.
At the south of the island, where the water is shallow, there are some canal banks
created. From the centre, towards the <North, there are various shoals and reefs, the
most central being 'Secca del Torrione'( Torrione shoal), which is marked by a seamarker
beacon 'Cardinal South' (2354).
Other Shoals are to be found south of Torrione shoal (under which one must pass to find a
good depth). The first one you encounter is the 'Marsiglia Shoal', with a depth of 6m.
To the north of the canal, there are many electrical wires on the seabed and it is
prohibited to anchor, fish or moor here.
The island of Vivara, a protected park area, is covered with lush vegetation; on the
summit there is a tower. From Procida, access is by foot, but crossing is prohibited due
to the presence of a spit which holds up a water pipe.
In the bay which is formed by the 2 islands, there is good shelter.
