More than fifteen years ago, a tourism company sank two boats about 20 meters deep for their activities in the vicinity of Puerto Colón, about 200 meters from the coast

After changing its location, the company abandoned these wrecks that eventually were covered and filled with life.

By becoming a small artificial reef near the coast different species have occupied this place in a fixed way as huge groups of Bastard grunts (Pomadasys incisus), Cow bream (Sarpa salpa) and Striped seabream (Lithognathus mormyrus) reside between the two boats. It is common for fry banks to take refuge near this protection with the consequent arrival of Almako jacks (Seriola rivoliana) and Atlantic bonitos (Sarda sarda) searching for food. It is always an exciting vision to see them swimming. inside the wrecks we can find different types of crustaceans, nudibranchs and hopefully some seahorse. They use all the remains of the ship’s interior to be able to hook their tail and settle there.

Basic level.
