Mama Viña Wreck / Mexico

Mama Vina
The fishing vessel Mama Viña was sunken in 1995 in order to create an artificial reef near Playa-Del-Carmen‎. Since then, the wreck was densely covered with various corals and it attracted plenty of marine dwellers. The wreck is not recommended to novices because of strong currents in this region. The visibility is very good there and in summer it can reach 60m/197ft.
