Dive site: El Condesito

Depth: 6-20 metres/ 30 metres+

The Condesito, a freighter carrying cement for the construction of

Los Cristianos, was wrecked on the shoreline near Punta Rasca in late

1971.  No lives were lost.

Decades later and although the wreck is disintegrating, leaving it

largely impenetrable, the life here continues to thrive.  We can expect

to see huge trumpet fish, octopus, cuttlefish, barracuda and many

more. Situated in a sheltered bay, this site offers great diving for

beginners and more seasoned divers alike!  The fingers of lava either

side of the wreck are also worth exploring.  A great spot for

snorkelers too.
