Wreck description:

To the diving site it is possible to get only by boat. Average depth is 41 m. There is a shipwreck of the Norwegian boat, which sank on January 27, 1948 as a result of hitting a mine. The ship was built in 1942, had a length of 52 m and width of 7 m. It was one of the larger water disasters during World War II. The wreck is divided into 2 parts, which are located upright on the sandy bottom. It is possible to swim into the wreck and explore its inside, but due to often appearing there weak visibility the shipwreck wasn’t still entirely explored by divers. The ship is covered by fishing nets, and around the shipwreck are many metal parts and remains of the disaster. It is worthwhile to bring flashlights. This place is intended for highly advanced divers, due to large depths.
