El Condesito is a wrecked ship that crashed into rock and sank during a storm in 1972 near Las Galletas on the South coast of Tenerife. The wreck sits in a fairly shallow water, however, the site is still recommended only to experienced divers due to the strong currents. The depth of the wreck is around 18m/59ft, with the deepest point at 21m/69ft and the highest point at 6m/20ft. The water visibility can be in excess of 35m/115ft. Marine life includes dolphins, trumpet fish, morays, lizard fish, barracudas, jacks, stingrays, lobsters, octopuses and scorpionfish.
