Don Pedro

Characteristics of the wreck

45 m

Balearic Islands
Mediterranean Sea
Ferry (0)


The passenger and cargo ship, Don Pedro, belongs to ISCOMAR. Loaded with vehicles and containers, the ship links Ibiza to Denia in the province of Alicante. On the night of 11 July 2007, as it left the port of Ibiza, the ship hit a shoal on the islet of Dado Pequeño, due to an error in its trajectory. The ship sank without casualties as all eighteen crew members and passengers were rescued. The ship sank very quickly in less than an hour. The heavy fuel oil was removed from the ship's holds as well as the diesel and chemicals which were extracted from the containers. An ecological disaster threatening to pollute the environment of Ibiza was narrowly avoided.

The 142-meter long, 20-meter wide wreck lies on the sand at a depth of 45 meters, with the superstructure rising to 25 meters, lying on its port side with its bow facing north-east. Scuba diving the Don Pedro is very popular as it is one of the largest wrecks in the Mediterranean. Increasingly concretion by fauna and flora, there are several routes to explore the Don Pedro, depending on whether you start your dive at the propeller, the bow, or the wheelhouse. Only very experienced and adequately equipped divers can enter the wreck. The interior of the ship is only accessible to very experienced divers.
