The 58m MV Karwela, an old tourist ferry that once plied the Grand Harbour, was scuttled in August 2006 to form an artificial reef on Gozo’s south-east coast. This wreck stands perfectly upright and approximately 80 metres from the dive’s entry point. There is plenty to explore on its three decks. The top deck starts at a depth of 30m and the sandy bottom is at 40m to 42m. The nearby reef offers an excellent way to continue the dive, gradually ascending along the wall and providing a safety stop on the 5m-deep plateau above.
