Meteor is the wreck of a Russian hydrofoil ferry which sank in 2003. It’s about 30 meters long and 9 meters wide. The Meteor wreck sank largely intact to a depth of 17 meters, but a subsequent storm destroyed it and opened it up. You can still see the passenger seating and even try them out for some funny pictures.
There is normally a shoal of big barracuda around the wreck and often large rays or even electric rays. The wreck is almost completely covered by a large shoal of roncadors. The wreck engines are also clearly visible, octopuses love them. On the side of the wreck you can find a toilet, but it’s out of use.
