Arrastão do IPIMAR

Dive the Algarve with SUBNAUTAAn old iron trawler that was sunk in 1995 by the IPIMAR, to serve as an artificial reef. The vessel is still complete, though the interior has been cleaned and cleared of machinery.

The craft is lying on its starboard side on the sandy sea bed, with its bow pointing upwards. The entire craft is very interesting in itself, with some parts where the diver can enter safely.

After more than a decade on the sea bed, it is going through a very interesting phase of colonization, and the hull is now almost totally covered by a myriad of colourful organisms.

The vessel is surrounded by shoals of pout, black seabream and mucharras, and the main attraction are the two large conger eels.

These should be observed from outside the wreck, respecting their territory and avoiding directing the light from the torch directly in their eyes.
