Dubrovnik divers mixing business with pleasure

Last weekend the Abyss Dubrovnik Diving Centre carried out a special action to clean the seabed in front of the Hotel Neptun in Babin Kuk. The divers then went to depths of around 40 metres and to the shipwreck of the Italian cargo ship Taranto.

On the 15th of February 1943 the Taranto hit an underwater mine, ran into the Grebeni islands and sunk to a watery grave. At the time the ship was carrying a cargo of tractors and flour and two tractors can still be seen today along with the shipwreck which lies at a strnage 45 degree angle.

Not only did the divers clean the Dubrovnik seabed but they also had a fun dive down to this World War II wreck.
