Description dive spot:
The "Michel C" collided at night and fog with a ship of the same shipping company. As the back then very modern two-screw powered steam-powered ship had previously been damaged, insurance fraud was suspected.
The wreck has decayed heavily, but with many details. On the wreck you will find many conger eels and moray eels. In addition, a huge lobster is waiting in the bow.
