Reggio Messina

Map of Reggio Messina

We find the “Reggio di Messina”, at 25 minutes by boat from the port of Estartit. This ship was a 115 meter long ferry that also transported the train traffic between Sicily and Italy. In 1991 she was towed from Barcelona to Estartit, where she was eventually sunk on purpose to create an artificial reef.

The wreck has been damaged by many winter storms. Today, the wreck is broken into 3 pieces (stern, center area and bow). The top of the wreck is at 27 meters deep and descends to 35 meters.

Only for experienced divers level 2 or Advanced. We only go to the Reggio di Messina if the weather conditions allow it.
