Standing on the boat-ramp, turn almost 90 degrees to the right. There is a big, black buoy (more like a can) on the wreck. Can be hard to spot when it's choppy. For an easier spotting of the buoy walk towards the big, private peer on the right. From there you can easily spot it.
It's a long swim on the surface, aprox. 100 meters, preferably use a scooter.
Follow the line down as there can be a current from the surface down to 20 m. You meet the mast at approx. 20 meter and the deck at about 35. The stern rests at 47 meters and the bow goes up to about 33 meters.
Wonderful wreck with big open spaces to go into, but use a line if you go in, lots of silt. Propeller and rudder intact, makes for a beautiful photo op :D
The German cargo ship went down in -44, loaded with ammo and concrete and rests in an upright position.
