Dive Sites / 119 views
On the 5th of May 1945, Coriolanus, a British mine seeker sank quickly after hitting a mine in the north Adriatic. Nowadays, what once was a Shakespeare class ship, lies as a well preserved wreck at a depth of 29 m. The highest point of what once used to be the ship bridge is at a depth of 17 m. This upper part is completely covered with sponges, shells and nudibranchs. The rear anti aircraft guns are hard to miss, as well as the heavy MGs in the front part of the wreck. As this wreck became a home to many marine species, you may encounter conger eels emerging out from different corners or see big crabs and scorpion fish waiting for their prey. The passages on the wreck are very small making any kind of turning impossible, so penetrations of the wreck are for specialist only. The wreck is 50 m long and 8 m wide.
