Wreck description:

This 70 meters steamer was built in 1879 in Great Britain and sank in 1914, hitting rocks on the coast of Cres island, in the Kvarner bay. It is one of the most popular and most photogenic diving sites in Croatia. It is easily accessible, as it is located close to the shore, and the wreck is marked with buoy. The stern of wreck is already at a depth of 20 meters. Experienced divers can admire it fully, explore individual cabins, swim through the chimney turned over, as well as explore bottom parts of the deck, where as a result of hitting rocks the damage causing sinking arose. Lina is also a home for various species of sea creatures. The shipwreck is very well preserved, however on deeper levels the visibility can be weak. It is worthwhile to finish diving close the coast, visiting a small 3 meter cave.
