MFV Helen

MFV Helen was a wooden fishing trawler, which was sunk deliberately in 1990,  being beyond viable economic repair. 

Initially she was planned to be sunk just off the Seven Sisters, however due to a strong northerly current at the time she finally came to rest alongside the South Mole.

MFV Helen is found on a sandy seabed in 22 meters of water. She is 20 meters in length and 6 meters wide, home to a wide range of marine life typical of Gibraltarian dive sites. Great for wreck penetration dives and divers with a keen interest in photography due to the abundance of aquatic life and pleasing asthetics of the wreck itself.

What can be found on the site:

  • Octopus

  • Cuttlefish

  • Conger and Moray eels

  • Nudibranchs

  • Spider crabs and common lobster

  • Wide range of fish species

  • Great photo opportunities

This dive site is suitable for experienced divers due to the depth and the upredictable currents around the vicinity.
