Rubis, wreck

The Ruby is one of the Mediterranean’s must-see wrecks. Ranked by the magazine Plongeurs International among the 101 most beautiful dives in the world, the Rubis is a pure jewel. To be able to observe a submarine in perfect condition is rare enough not to give yourself the opportunity to dive there.

The flora is not very present on the Rubis. Conger eels and moray eels are particularly large at the kiosk. Anthias and castagnioles are the inevitable companions.
