Must see
The Togo is a 76m/249ft long cargo ship with both sails and steam engine, built in Newcastle in 1882 for the French Compagnie Havraise Peninsulaire. In 1918 it ran into a floating mine in the Bay of Cavalaire and went down rapidly. Split in two, the main part with the bow lies at 60m/196ft while the stern is at 68m/223ft depth. It is possible to swim through the wreck and explore the impressive engine room through the opening left after the collapse of the main chimney. The anchors and a cast-iron stove are still down there and in good condition. The wreck is covered in red, orange, black and deep purple gorgonian fans and inhabited by a variety of marine life.

C'est une plongée vraiment profonde, mais très int
C'est une plongée vraiment profonde, mais très intéressante pour les plongeurs expérimentés! L'épave est recouvert de gorgones colorées. Jean-Louis B
