Dive Site: Mogan Wrecks

Location: Mogan, Gran Canaria

Description: Two wrecks

Length: 40 - 50 metres (130 - 165 feet)

Depth: 20 metres (65 feet)

Visibility: 15 - 20 metres (50 - 65 feet)

Rating: ****

We descended to the intact wreck, but our dive guide indicated to swim off, so we followed him across the sea bed for about 5 minutes and came across another broken up wreck, with a large shoal of roncadors, and some medregals on it. We spent about 5-10 minutes here before returning to the intact wreck. As we got back to it, we heard the engines of the local 'tourist submarine', and this then appeared out of the south and went past within about 10m of us, all the tourists taking flash photos of us. Despite the sub, the wreck seemed to have resident barracuda, trumpetfish, wrasse and parrotfish. Seeing a (moving) submarine underwater was a real thrill, but the wrecks were a bit small.

When I dived the wreck there was a strong current present which did help in the marine life as I was lucky enough to see a bull ray with a 2m wingspan and a marlin carcass next to the wreck. Halfway through the dive a shoal of 200 strong barracuda swam just in visible range and some of them came towards the wreck looking for a meal. It was the first dive of my holiday and definitely the best!
