TRAVEL TIME: 30 minutes
MIN. CERTIFICATION: Advanced Open Water
DIVE DESCRIPTION: British Bomber Airplane from World War II, shot down. Both crew were saved and taken to Naxos to be cared for. The beaufighter wreck is still in great condition and is truly a memorable dive. There is nothing around except the plane at 34 mtrs of sand bottom. We descend along the anchor line and reach the wreck where we swim around the plane and take in the marvel that it is. We must be careful with our fins as the sand and silt is very fine and if we disrupt it we lose the visibility. We can look into the Cockpit, the Gunner seat, follow the wing span, where there are two huge Scorpion fish hiding out, and note the one remaining propeller bent from impact with the Sea. Paros Scuba Club only conducts Recreational No Decompression Dives, so we monitor closely dive computers and the maximum total dive time is 30 minutes.
