The Araganza – Mogan
The first of the two wrecks sunk by the Yellow Submarine company, lying only minutes away from Puerto Mogan and the dive centre in Taurito. This wreck has been down since the early 1990’s and time has taken its toll with the many storms we have experienced in those years. However the wreck is bursting with life and has its resident massive shoal of Roncadors and Barracuda as well as the many Trumpet fish, Damsel and Puffers that go about their business daily. On occasion Canarian lobster set up camp and Moray Eels and Octopus pop out of the tangled wreck. In mid water you will see Sardine darting back and forth and Amberjack chasing them. Turtle, large Rays and even visit from Manta Ray and Wahoo have graced the water in and around this lovely wreck.
There are two wrecks sunk at Mogán, they were both sunk for the Submarine tours, which leave from Mogán Harbour. The old wreck is now broken up, but the new one is a large fishing vessel and they are both at a depth of 19m. They are covered in marine life as the Submarine tour feeds the fish over the wrecks to attract them for the tourists. The marine life has everything possible in large numbers and we try to time the dive so that the Submarine is there at the same time. How cools that!!!
