Diving description:

The hull is clearly leaning to the left side. The wreck due to the lack of pieces of equipment - chimney, machines, and a large part of the superstructure is safe and easy to dive. The most interesting place of the wreck is a gallery located on the right side and some of the rooms to which you can get from the catwalk or the upper deck. Warning!! The rooms inside the wreckage are covered with sediment, which can make a considerable drop in the visibility inside the wreck.
