The Reggio Messina wreck is located off the northeast coast of Spain in between L’Estartit and L’Escala and can be reached by a 5 minutes boat trip from either town. Reggio Messina was a ferry-boat that was used to transport trains to Italy, and when its working life was over, it was deliberately sunk for the diving community in 1991. As it was recently sunk, the Reggio Messina is fully intact, but the marine life around the wreck is poor. The wreck can be penetrated, but only by experienced divers, due to the depth of the wreck.
