There is now another wreck in Grenada to explore and, although Persia II is a recent sinking, it’s a genuine antique. In addition to its fine reefs, Grenada is well known for its exceptional range of wrecks, which has made the island a truly unique Caribbean dive destination.

Built in Germany, the cargo vessel Atlantik was built just before the start of WW2. She was refitted in 1950 and extended and she was renamed the Persia II in 1964.

In the 1980s she moved to St Vincent to run inter-island cargo – this continued until recently, when her pumps failed and she took on water in rough weather off Grenada earlier this year. All crew members were rescued by the Coast Guard, but the vessel sank seven miles off the south coast.

Aquanauts Grenada recently sent a team to find and dive the Persia II wreck, after following an oil trail and using sonar. The Aquanauts team reports that she lies upright in 35m with marine life already moving in. So, the wreck is now part of Grenada’s chain of Atlantic wrecks, lying in a location where the currents attract rays, nurse sharks and other pelagics.

Regaldive offers packages starting at £999pp for seven nights’ twin-share B&B at True Blue Bay Resort - Grenada including transfers and flights with British Airways from London Gatwick. Our diving packages with Aquanauts start from £232pp for six dives.
