Wreck description:

To the diving site it is possible to get by boat. Average depth is 25 m. There is a wreck of the British cargo ship, which on July 20, 1901 was grounded. The ship was built in 1901 in England, had a length of 137 m and width of 17 m. It transported 7000 tons of packaged cargo. The ship sank in very rapidly. Fortunately during the disaster it was managed to rescue the entire crew. The ship lies in a good condition on very large depths. The best preserved is hull of the boat, which on the starboard is covered by soft corals. The possibility to swim inside and explore it is conditioned from appearance of strong currents. Most of the wood has already been destroyed, resulting in easier access and more light during the dive. Large number of ship’s equipment is located around the shipwreck and in its interior.
