ABOUT MS BALENA

Edit

The Wreck “MS Balena” lies just below the surface. Average depth is 8 m. It is a wreck of the Norwegian transport ship, which sank on April 12, 2001. The ship was built in 1952, had a length of 41 m and width of 7 m. The wreck lies on a rather small depth and exploring it from the inside is very simple and pleasant. An additional attraction of this place is very rich marine flora and fauna. While dive you can find a lot of species of colorful fish, which have found sheltering inside the wreck. This is a perfect place for every level of training, due to small depths.
