Wreck description:

Etnea is a wreck of the steamer built in Italy in 1870. This 61 meters ship sank as a result of navigational error in 1894. It grounded at the bottom parallel to the shoreline, at a depth of 35 meters. The force of impact caused tearing away the stern, which drifted away from the rest of wreck. It is possible to admire the skeleton of this ship, as well as well-preserved crane and lift; however wooden parts largely were destroyed. There is a possibility of exploring the inside of this shipwreck, in which are remains of the equipment covered by algae and crustaceans.
