When we used this passage to reach Spiaggia Acquarilli a few days ago our depth sounder when a bit crazy showing very little depth contrary to what's indicated on the charts, but the traffic of similar size vessels and even ferries indicates that it must be a miss reading caused by the Posidonia seaweed.

Diving hot spot clearly, there's already a couple of divers judging by the buoys markers.
