Scuba diving in Mogan Wrecks – Cermona II
At Puerto de Mogán, the two wrecks lie on the seabed, at a distance of 50m/164ft from each other. The first, Alagranza, was sunk in the early 1990s, and the second, Cermona II, was sunk in 2002. Covered with a fine layer of algae, they became home to many species of marine creatures. But seeing beautiful fish is not the only reason why this site is worth visiting: it attracts divers as a place where it's possible to explore wrecks in detail with ease and safety.
When to go
Diving is possible all year round, because there's no big contrast between the water temperatures in winter and summer. In summer the average water temperature is 22C/72F, and in winter it is about 18C/64F. Occasionally divers may face strong currents.
What to see
The main attraction of the site is the opportunity to explore the wreck's hold and bridge, and take a peek at the engine-room. Some of the many marine species that can be seen there are parrotfish, barracudas, roncadores, trumpetfish, bream, damselfish, morays, and sometimes groupers and eels. Octopi and big turtles are some of the permanent residents.
