Dive site description
Skenderbeg was a passenger steamer built in Trieste in Italy in 1916. For almost three decades Skenderbeg was carrying passengers and food on a daily route from Rijeka crnojevica to Skadar port in Albania. During the WW2 on 12 February 1942 in the area of Karuc Skenderbeg was deliberately submerged by Montenegrin partisans.
The steamer lies on sandy bottom with a maximum depth of 12 m. It is one peace wreck , very well preserved and suitable for all certified divers. Penetration into the wreck is possible but only for Wreck specialty certified divers. Dive site is not marked so it is necessary to establish the reference line.

Why you should do this trip???
We provide this trip only in certain occasions. For example if we have a rough sea conditions or just because some of our clients is a wreck addicted. No matter what is the reason we recommend the trip because the Lake beauty is stunning. To be completely honest dive conditions are not great due to poor visibility and water temperature BUT the Skenderbeg is something not to miss.
