When the P29 was scuttled, they left the turret-mounted machine gun in place where it stands intact and has become one of the most popular attractions of the wreck. But at 52 metres in length, there’s so much more to check out.
If penetrating the interior of the boat is not your thing, there are plenty of things to explore in the exterior. As is the case with most wrecks on the Maltese Islands, at the P29 you may find barracuda, sea bream, moray eels, many nudibranchs, while deeper into the ship you may encounter squid and calamari. If you’re lucky enough, you may even find squid and calamari eggs, usually hanging in white strings looking very much like pearl necklaces.
