It has a shipwreck

Park your car where it is marked, in case you drive a conventional car you should park 100 meters further at the plateau. Walk with your equipment following an easy path until you reach the sea.

THE COAST

In case your company includes non divers, they can enjoy swimming in beautiful waters and a rocky beach, while they can admire the wreck from the surface.

ENTRY TO THE SEA

In the left opening of the sea there are carved steps that lead you into the water, where the entry point is located. The depth there is 2.5 meters so enter with precaution.

THE DIVE

Swim for 240 meters following a course of 145 degrees and meet the stern with the rudder and the propeller of the ship. Dive there and start the underwater tour. The ropes tied to the ship are signs of the crew’s latest attempt to moor the ship ashore to repair it. The ropes broke and the ship sank. Other points of interest are the open hold where you can see a car that was inside the ship. As the shipwreck is quite shallow and bright, it is an ideal place for photography, while your snorkeling friends can also visit it.

The use of a buoy is necessary, as many boats pass through the spot and it will be wise to let them know there are divers in the area.

Upon return, follow the opposite course and use the steps again to exit.

SAFETY FIRST!

Σε κάθε κατάδυση ακολουθήστε το πλάνο που έχετε συζητήσει από πριν με τον buddy σας. Μην υπερβαίνετε τα προσωπικά σας όρια και τα όρια της εκπαίδευσής σας, ενώ αν είστε κουρασμένοι ή έχετε ξενυχτήσει την προηγούμενη, θα ήταν ίσως προτιμότερο να καταδυθείτε κάποια άλλη φορά.Καλές αναδύσεις!
