The Barge

Points of interest : 

The barge was lost during a storm by a boat pulling 7 other barges, winter 2008.

After being smashed against the rocks, it sunk between « the cliff » and « the cathedral » dive sites.

The barge is about 50 meters long and lay on the bottom between 20 and 5 meters deep. Algae and sponges colonize slowly the wreck and this artificial habitat is a refuge for many species of fishes and invertebrates such as the beautiful pink flabellina.

 

Max depth : 22 meters
