épave du Liban

On 17 June 1903, less than an hour after leaving the port of Marseille for Bastia, the liner was rammed on the starboard bow by the Insular, returning from Toulon with about forty passengers on board and preparing to enter the roadstead near the Ile Maïre.

Resting at more than thirty meters, the wreck of Lebanon is accessible to experienced divers. We meet groupers, mostelles, scorpion fish, and moray eels.
