The wreck is 197 meters long and some 10,000 tones so we need to make 1 dive on each end and even then you will not See it all. It is classified as one of the best 10 wreck dives in the world, certainly the best in the Mediterranean. You could do 20 dives on this and see new things every time.

This day is similar to the Zenobia day, but allows us to dive an old British Battleship first. This ship was sunk after extensively using it for  your  target practice, and actually rests on the seabed upside-down. It is a great penetration dive, allowing you to go inside the hull through escape hatches.

At the other end of the island we have some very spectacular caves and tunnels which can be dived very easily by all levels of divers. The day itself is highly enjoyable and sometimes we finish the day by visiting the Nissi Beach where some maniacs.

This dive is only for very experienced divers. In the middle of the login the seabed shoals up from great depths to 17 meters. There are regular sightings of Pelagic and an abundance of marine life. The coup de grace are the caves at 38 meters coming out again at 42 meters. Spectacular.
