Tug 2 is sunk on June 20, 2013 to promote diving in the region of Sliema, St Julians. The wreck lies beautifully upright in the sand at a depth of 22 meters. You can reach Tug 2 from the shore, the ship is about 250 meters off the coast of Exiles in Sliema. To reach the ship you follow the dividing line between reef and sand untill you find the bow of the ship that sits in the reef. The dive here is sheltered from the wind and current therefore it is a good choice when westerly winds are strong.

Particulars
