SS Margit

Ease Of Dive: ease

The SS Margit was an old steam-freighter that sank in the course of a bombing attack on April 4, 1942 at Karkara creek, off Grand Harbour (La Valletta). The wreck was discovered in the late Seventies.  The hull is in poor condition because it was devastated by the explosions, (the bow and the propellers are missing), and lies on its port side. The wreck covers a large area and is difficult to find in poor visibility without local knowledge.  It is recommended that no diver penetrate the wreck unless proper equipment including reels are used.

Due to the visibility here it is not recommended for the newly certified diver.
