The biggest Wreck in the mediteranean sea. The Tanker Amoco Milford haven sunk the 14 April 1991. The supertanker Haven was launched in Cadiz during 1973: she was 335m-long, 52m-wide, with a maximum capacity of 230000 tons The complete name of the tanker was Amoco Milford Haven and a true spell was over the Haven and its sister-ships: the Haven itself had a throubled life: she was seriously damaged by a missile in the Persian gulf during the Iran-Iraq war; the Amoco Cadiz sunk off the coasts of Brittany in 1978, causing a horrible ecologic disaster; the Maria Alejandra exploded off the coasts of Mauretania in 1980; and the Mycene exploded and sunk off Senegal coasts. On April 11, 1991, the Haven was anchored off Genova Multedo harbour: an explosion occourred in a tank and the Captain and four men of the crew died. A tug tried to tow the tanker closer to the coast, but the bow was broken off and sunk: now it lies at a depth of -490m. After three days and a series of explosions, the Haven sunk on April 14. The wreck lies in perfect navigation trim on a sandy bottom at a depth of -85m, but the upper part of the structure reachs -32m: the funnel has been dismantled because it was dangerous for navigation. The Haven is very popular among local scuba divers (the ship is by far the largest wreck in Mediterranean suitable for diving), but the dive is considered not easy: after some deadly accidents, the Harbour Authorities issued severe regulations for scuba diving. the easiest way is to ask a local dive center Position: 1.2 miles off Arenzano

Tonino's favourite dive is "La Grotta Dei Gamberi" (The Cavern of the Shrimps) because of its abundance of pelagic animals like the tuna, big groupers and dentix. He also loves the smaller animals – this dive is called after the massive families of white shrimps which live here. In front of the cave is a mountain which goes from 30 metres down to to 45 covered with beautiful red coral and violet sea fan encrusted with eggs from the Gattucio di Mare (spotted catshark).
