Wreck description:

To the diving site it is possible to get by boat. Average depth is 75 m. There is a shipwreck of the steel steamer, which sank in 1887 as a result of mistake of the deputy of captain. The ship instead of passing the reef impacted directly on it and went to the bottom in just a few moments. The steamer was built in 1873 in Great Britain, had a length of 80 and transported a cargo of wood, iron and crates. The shipwreck lies on large depths with separated hull, but constitutes a very interesting diving site. It is characterized by a rich marine flora and fauna.
