Comments:
The Rozi was sunk in 1992 as an underwater attraction for tourists on submarine tours. The submarine trips no longer operate, but this wonderful little tugboat continues to sit
perfectly upright on a sandy bottom within a rocky amphitheatre. The ship is slowly being colonized and all areas are accessible. Surrounding the ship are thousands of fish, with
chromis, bream and sand smelt predominating. You will also see amberjack (Seriola dumerili) and bonito (Sarda sarda), which 'buzz' the shoals of small fish. The flat sandy
seabed around the wreck is covered in huge anemones (Condylactis auratica).

As you leave the wreck and swim back towards the shore, you can see a large anchor partially embedded in the sand. Continue past this to the sloping wall and you will find
the first of a few small tunnels which lead eventually around to the Marfa Point entry.
