New wreck found near Grenada – video

After weeks of searching, Peter Seupel and a team of divers from Aquanauts Grenada have finally located the wreck of the vessel “Persia II”, which sank near the island of Grenada. The vessel was sailing from Trinidad to St Vincent. However, on March 3, 2017, as a result of untold troubles, the vessel began to sink midway.

The coastguard responded to the S.O.S. signal given by the crew. Thanks to fast and efficient action, all nine crew members were rescued from the Persia II. It should be noted that the situation was very serious, because at the time of the arrival of the rescue team, the ship was already partly under water.

Since the sinking of the ship, Peter Seupel and his companions have been searching for the wreck of the vessel. They finally succeeded on 29 March 2017, less than a month after the entire incident.

The wreck has settled flush on the keel and is at a depth of 35 metres. For local divers and tourists visiting the area, it is sure to be quite an attraction. The sunken ship is located just 9 Mm from the island.

According to the divers themselves, the site is ideal and the wreck itself has already been spotted by representatives of the local fauna, who have begun to colonise its interior and the immediate vicinity.

Grenada is one of the smallest countries in the world and an island forming part of the Lesser Antilles archipelago, located in the Caribbean Sea.
