‘Cermona II’ and ‘Pecio Viejo’ in southeast Gran Canaria
The two Mogán wrecks are sunk barely 40 metres apart and close to the Puerto de Mogán marina in southeast Gran Canaria. Both were sunk deliberately to encourage diving. The smaller ‘Cermona II’ is 32 metres long and was sunk in 2002, while ‘Pecio Viejo’ is now a jumble of metal surrounded by marine life.
Diving by the Puerto de Mogán yellow submarine
The wrecks sit on an attractive sandy bottom that is 21 metres at its deepest point. Excellent visibility and weak currents make it a straightforward dive suitable for all levels. Along with the wrecks, schools of grunts, trumpet fish and stingrays, and the regular visits from the yellow submarine from Puerto de Mogán marina, add to the spot’s charm.
