The Ennerdale wreck

The English tanker Ennerdale with a displacement of 47,000 tons, owned by the British Navy and carrying barrels of fuel and lubricants, ran into an unmarked rock in the early 70s, which is now named after him and sank a mile and a half from it. The aft part of the vessel with protruding huge bronze propellers and the superstructure are completely preserved. The wheelhouse is available for visits.

Now this vessel has become home to giant eels, scarpen, tailfish, lionfish, pennant fish, barracuda, many sharks and giant cod. During the dive, you will be accompanied by schools of fat-fish almost all the time. If you're lucky, you'll see huge groupers and nurse sharks. The boat is located about 2.5 km south of Mamelles Island. The maximum depth is 30 m, but most of the vessel with its high sides and superstructure are up to a depth of 15-20 meters.
