The P31 Patrol Boat Wreck

Wreck Dive, Comino

The P31 was a minesweeper. She was named Pasewalk (GS05) by the Germans. However, she then gave its name as P31 when sold to Malta in the year 1992. She was then used as a Patrol Boat.

The P31 is a sister ship of the P29, another wreck that lays on the sandy bottom at Cirkewwa. In 2004 she was bought and decommissioned by the Malta Tourism Authority who cleaned and scuttled the vessel and officially scuttled as an artificial dive site in 2009. The P31 now lies on white sand off the island of Comino in a depth of 22m. This dive site is only reachable by boat

The Marine Life

The Marine life on this wreck is great. You can find Nudibranch, Morey Eels, scorpionfish, Octopus and if you have a search over the sandbed maybe you can even spot a stingray. Because of the shallow depth of the wreck, it will show a lot of colors, a good opportunity to take lots of pictures for your dive album.

Experience Needed

You must be certified to dive to a depth of 18 meters to dive this site. If you wish to penetrate the wreck you will be required to have a Wreck Diver certification. We would also recommend Nitrox Diver.
