El Arona

The Arona was a Spanish merchant ship that used to navigate among the Canary Islands transporting all kinds of cargo. Today it lies on its starboard side on a sandy bottom at a depth of 35 meters. In 1972 a fire broke out in its engine room and after all the crew had been evacuated the vessel was towed back to the harbour. 2 miles away from it , the boat sank.
