Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Tihany
On the 12th of February, 1917 Tihany was carrying 129 tonnes of coal and a tank wagon of oil from Kotor to Bar, when navigation difficulties due to the sea mines in the area led to the ship running into Cape Arsa. Efforts were made to tow the ship, but the hull was severely damaged, and Tihany found its watery grave 40 metres under the surface. The bell recovered from the wreck by our team in 2004 undeniably confirmed the tragedy of Tihany. The impressive wreck of Tihany lays in the entrance of the Bay of Kotor, next to the island Mamula. The Austro-Hungarian Sea Steamship was built in Trieste in 1908 with a length of 45.40 metres, depth 3.04 metres, width 5.75 metres and a gross displacement of 204 tonnes. It had two masts to support its sails; with the aid of the wind and the 425BHP triplex steam-engine Tihany could reach speeds up to12 knots. 6th Nov 2010 Wreck position is: 42° 23.997' North, 18° 33.459'East. This is about 430m to the North of Mamula Island. Tihany is also known as Wreck of Tihany.
