DESCRIPTION

A wreck in a diving environment commonly called the Steamer. In fact, the driving unit was the Diesel engine. It was probably a tugboat, although it is not 100% sure. The reasons for its sinking are unknown.

DIVING DESCRIPTION

The Steamer Wreck lies on the keel, with a slight tilt to the side, near the port of Hel. It has a nicely preserved bow section, an interesting captain’s bridge with a protruding steering column, along with a preserved steering wheel and compass. The superstructure is also in good condition, next to the port side are the remains of a lifeboat. The wreck is available to technical divers.
