Perhaps one of the most eerily mesmerising attractions of this shipwreck are the steel stairs leading to the lower deck. At the stern divers can see the rudder, propellers and windlasses used for docking and mooring the ship, while you may also visit the bridge and the ship’s bow. One more popular attraction of the MV Karwela used to be the shell of a Volkswagen Beetle car which was sunk on the starboard shortly after the ship’s scuttling, however, nowadays, there isn’t much left of the car.
Here, you will also encounter a variety of underwater flora and fauna including spider crabs, groupers, nudibranchs and cow beams. The wreck itself is fully coated in algae and marine invertebrates, while sea firs populate the railings. Spiral tube worms called Spirographis spallanzani are also popular here, while you may also spot some seahorses.
