Nea Kameni (Wreck)

This wreck is located inside of the volcano of Santorini. It sank in 1981 in the port of Taxiarchis next to the port’s unique church built into the cliff of the volcano. The wreck sank accidentally due to a crew member’s mistake with the pumps.

A photographer’s paradise, this dive has lots of small marine fish set against the wreck for great photos!
