The Blenheim Bomber was a WWII aircraft that served in the English air forces. It sank in 1941 after being attacked by German aircraft. When it crashed into the sea it landed on its belly, and the fore section of the fuselage was smashed off and separated from the plane. The remaining parts of the plane are still well preserved for such an old wreck. Divers can see both wings, two engines, propellers and the pilot's seat. As it happens with most wrecks of this age, the fuselage is now overgrown with soft corals and brightly colored sponges. This dive site is more suited to experienced divers due to the depth of the wreck.

When to go

Diving is possible all year round, however, the best conditions for diving are from May to November when the water temperature is between 24-26C/75-79F.

What to see

The wreck of the British aircraft of the WWII with many of the parts still almost intact. Flora and fauna include beautiful sponges, tube worms, crabs, lobsters and octopus. Moray eels, sea turtles, groupers and other bigger fish also can visit the wreck site.
