Mogán Wrecks – Cermona II

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

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