Ksamil Bay Artificial Reef Project: Cruiser 1, Torpedo 1-2


Late last year (2010), five de-commisioned Albanian Navy vessels were towed out from nearby Baza Saranda to Ksamil Bay and sunk as a seminal artificial reef project on the coastline. There are two 38 m cruisers, two 18 m torpedo boats, and a 17 m patrol boat in water depths ranging from 15 msw to 33 msw. We are currently documenting the succession of the biological communities associated with these wrecks.

This video shows the full length of one of the cruisers. Footage by Derek Smith/RPM Nautical Foundation.
