Under the Italian flag, the cargo ship Participation, known locally as "Nina", was torpedoed and sunk by a German submarine off the coast of Santa Pola on February 4, 1918, while en route between Sicily and Liverpool with a cargo of oranges. and lemons. At a depth between 56 and 65 meters, she preserves all the main structure. The bow, main decks and bridge are well preserved. Between the end of the bridge and the stern there is a large hole, in the place of the ship where the torpedo hit, which splits the wreck in two. Your visit entails all the difficulties of technical diving in deep wrecks. To the depth, we must add the presence of networks, ropes, cables, twisted iron, and unstable structures.
