If you’re a wreck enthusiast, you may pay a visit to the two most popular ones. Also known as the Boltenhagen, the P29 was originally a Kondor I class minesweeper built for the German navy to patrol the border between East and West Germany. Then in 1997, she was sold to Malta where she served the Offshore Command of the Maritime Squadron of the Armed Forces of Malta until she was scuttled in 2007 to serve as a diving attraction and artificial reef. The wreck now lies upright on her keel on a sandy seabed at 34 metres, while the bow reaches depths of around 37 metres.
On the other hand, the MV Rozi was a tugboat built in Bristol in 1958 which was eventually sold to Tug Malta in 1981 and operated in the Grand Harbour. After being decommissioned in 1992, Rozi was bought by Captain Morgan Cruises and was scuttled to become an attraction to both submarine trips and divers. Lying upright on a sandy bottom, the Rozi is located at a depth of 36 metres and it is intact except for its engine and propeller.
Both around the P29 and the Rozi Tugboat you may find barracuda, sea bream, moray eels, scorpionfish, rainbow wrasses, cardinal fish, many nudibranchs, while deeper into the wrecks you may encounter squid and calamari.
