Scuba Diving Mallorca - New wreck planned

Plans are being discussed to create a new scuba diving attraction near Santa Ponsa just West of Palma de Mallorca.

Subject to approval by local authorities and other planning constraints, it is planned to scuttle an old decommissioned navy frigate close to Isla Malgrats just off the coast near Sant Ponsa, Mallorca.

Consideration has to be made to throughly decontaminating the vessel prior to sinking, but once scuttled it should soon become an attraction not only to human divers, but also to a wide diversity of sealife and form a basis for coral growth.

We understand the planned ship is to be the F71 Baleares (Wikipedia link for the Baleares Class Frigates). The F71 is one of five frigates built in the 1970's, this one was commissioned in 1973 and decommissioned in 2004.
