Lina (Wreck)

The LINA, an iron ship constructed in England back in 1879, now rests underwater as an intriguing dive site. Originally owned by Italy and utilized as a freight transporter in the Mediterranean, it met its unfortunate fate on December 14, 1914 when it collided with the shores of Cres and swiftly sank.

Situated in a location inaccessible from the shore and with minimal boat traffic nearby, the wreck remains exclusive to divers. This hidden gem has gained immense popularity among the diving community. However, it is important to note that this dive site is suitable for experienced divers due to its challenging nature.

The wreck of the LINA offers an array of captivating features. At a depth of 22 meters lies the highest point of the ship, the nose barrier. Descending further, a 45-degree slope reveals the elongated iron body, with the wooden components having deteriorated over time. Midway through the vessel, at approximately 40 meters, the top of the cabins awaits exploration. This section is recommended for recreational-qualified divers who have obtained at least a deep specialty certification. Finally, reaching a depth of 50 meters, the propeller (or its location) marks the deepest point of the ship. Therefore, swimming around the hull is advised solely for technically equipped and qualified divers.

Diving enthusiasts can expect a visibility of approximately 16 meters, allowing for a clear and immersive underwater experience. The maximum depth of the dive site reaches 38 meters. The LINA wreck is located in Croatia, specifically at Wrack Lina, D100, Filozići, Porozina, Grad Cres, Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, 51557, Croatia.

Embark on an unforgettable underwater adventure at the LINA wreck, where history meets the wonders of the sea. Discover the remnants of this remarkable iron ship and delve into the mysteries that lie beneath the waves.
