P31 lies not very deep and is in good condition. As a result, it is also suitable for beginners. Parts of the ship are illuminated by sunlighting in the crystal clear water and in and around it you'll find all kinds of fish and in the hold probably a moray. You dive off the coast of Comino. The ship was sunk on August 24, 2009, 360 meters off the coast, not far from the famous Blue Lagoon. It stands upright on the bottom. The stern resting in the sand, supported by the twin rudders. The screw shafts are still there, but the screws have been removed.

A diving buoy is required, especially in the summer when there are many boats. Due to the shallow location, large parts of the wreck are illuminated. Yet you do need a dive light in some areas.
