The 39m-long MV Cominoland, an old ferry used for tourist day-trips round Comino, was scuttled in August 2006 to form an artificial reef on Gozo’s south-east coast approximately 80 metres from the entry point. The wreck stands perfectly upright and the two decks offer plenty of potential for exploration. The sandy bottom around the wreck is home to rays, gurnards and giant tuns. This wreck starts at 32m and the maximum depth around the Cominoland is 40m. The nearby reef offers an excellent way to continue the dive, gradually ascending along the wall with a useful safety stop on a plateau 5m below the surface.
