The Grec was blown up in two pieces by the explosion of an underwater mine. The larger part, consisting of the middle and the stern of the ship, is in very good condition. The bow is located about 60 meters north-northeast of the main part. At the stern you should not miss the propeller. Often you can also watch groupers here. The superstructures are located at about 40 meters depth. The propeller is about 50 meters. The wreck is wonderfully overgrown with gorgonians and huge shoals of fish seek shelter in its vicinity.
