This dive site is situated in the north of Tenerife in a small town called Tabaiba, which is 40 minutes drive away from Las Americas tourist centre.
This wreck is a sunken tugboat El Peñon, which was working in Santa Cruz port for 49 years. In 2006 it was sunken on purpose to create an artificial reef and dive site.
Today divers can swim into the engine room and other parts of the vessel.
You can dive from the shore – the distance to the dive site is about 100 meters.
The upper part of the vessel lays 15 meters deep, the lower part – 30 meters deep.
Despite the fact that the vessel was sunken relatively recently, it attracted a lot of creatures: octopi, cuttlefish, barracudas, swarms of eels, nudibranches and other sea animals.
In general this dive site may be recommended to the divers who like wreck diving to practice their skills.
