The P29 lies 150 meters off the coast of Cirkewwa. The wreck is marked with a yellow buoy and accessible from the shore. You can use a boat when you quickly want to start your dive and have more dive time on the wreck. It is a German minesweeper which has served for 10 years as a patrol boat for the Maltese coastline. The ship was sunk in 2007 as a dive wreck and artificial reef by the Malta Marine Foundation and the Malta Tourism Authority. The highest point is only 12 meters below the surface but who wants to fully enjoy the wreck should descend to depths between 25 and 38 meters. Entrance and exit via Susies Pool.
