Wreck description:

To the diving site it is possible to get by boat. Average depth is 10 m. There is a wreck of small cargo ship. The origin and reason for sinking of the ship until today are unexplained. The shipwreck lies on a rather small depth in very good condition, and its exploring from the inside is very simple and pleasant. Numerous sacks with pellets are grounded in the most immediate surroundings of the ship. It is possible to dive also in the upper-structure of bow, where still is visible the chain, anchor lift and numerous items of the ship’s equipment. An additional attraction of this place is very rich marine flora and fauna. While dive you can find a lot of species of colorful fish, which have found sheltering inside the wreck. This is a perfect place for every level of training, due to small depths.
