New Flame

18-40m 

The MV New Flame is one of Gibraltars newest dive sites and can be found just off of Europa Point. In 2007 the New Flame collided with the Torm Gertrud, a Danish tanker. Despite the efforts of a salvage company to refloat the MV New Flame she sank leaving enormous parts of her superstructure and she now rests on a shallow bank.

 

Left to lie in between 18 and 70 metres, she is 190 meters long, 30 meters wide and 10 meters tall. Easily Gibraltar most expansive wreck, she is now teaming with a huge variety of marine life.

 

What can be found on the site:

  • Octopus

  • Cuttlefish

  • Conger and moray eels

  • Nudibranchs

  • Spider crabs and common lobster

  • Sunfish

  • Tuna

  • Wide range of fish species

  • Great photo opportunities

 

Even though this is one of Gibraltars most impressive wrecks it is only suitable for advanced certifed divers and upwards due to the unpredictable conditions found off Europa Point.
