Mogan Wrecks – Cermona II

Formerly it was a fishing boat and today is an instrument for the preservation and sustainability of sea life in the south of Gran Canaria. It provides shelter for fishes and helps to popularize sport diving. It is perfect for any diver, it’s main appeal being the ease with which one can explore it’s bridge, holds and engine room.

Five minutes away from the extraordinary port of Mogan, known as “Little Venice”, at a depth of 20 metres, this wreck lies on it’s starboard side on a mixed seabed of sand and small rocks. The fine algae covering it gives shelter to an endless number of species of crustaceans, fishes and molluscs typical of the island. Among them the European parrotfish, the only parrotish to be find in the Canary Islands, bastard grunts, cornetfish, morays or even the occasional dusky grouper. If we are lucky we might come across pelagic fishes such as amberjacks or some tunna fishes!
