Just some of the wrecks you’ll get to dive in Gozo

  • Wreck site: HMS Stubborn
    An S3 class submarine commissioned in 1943 for short-range operations. This wreck is 62m long, with a beam of 7m, and a draught of 3m.
    Depth and location: The wreck is intact and lies at approximately 55m on a white sandy bottom, which means that when the viz is good, it's really light. 
  • Wreck site: HMS Southwold
    A Hunt class destroyer whose primary function in the Second World War was to escort convoys – a particularly dangerous role. She faced danger from enemy aircraft, larger warships and U-boats, meaning an escort ship was only expected to last two years before she was sunk! Her final mission was to escort convoy MW10, a group of supply ships, from Alexandria in Egypt to Malta. Depth and location: The wreck lies in two parts several hundred metres apart, the bow section in 70-75m and the stern section slightly shallower but still around 70m. She lies approximately 1.5miles offshore.
  • Wreck site: SS Polynesien
    The 150m-long SS Polynesien was fitted with the deck guns – which you can still see on the wreck today. On 10 August 1918 the Polynesien was attacked by UC22 and sank within 20 minutes with the loss of 10 lives.
    Depth and location: The wreck now sits in 53-65m listing to port at 45 degrees. It's in excellent condition, considering it has been underwater for nearly 100 years.
