Fred Wreck is situated just outside of the Kyrenia Harbour entrance. This site is mostly a series of rocks (about 3 large rocks with a width of 25m/82ft and a length of 150m/492ft) forming an underwater ridge. As a local legend has it, a British diver Fred discovered this reef and began to feed groupers which followed him during each dive. This site has become the place for feeding fish (it may be boiled eggs or bread). The site is suitable for divers of all levels.
