Vlora bay. Dive at the Hospital Ship “Po”
In the Bay of Vlora, resting at a depth of 35m, lies one of the largest and most impressive wrecks in the whole Adriatic, that of the Italian hospital ship Po, sunk by British torpedo bombers on 14 March 1941. In the darkness of the night, the pilots were not aware that the ship was a hospital ship. In the attack that ensued, 21 on board the ship died, including three nurses; one of whom was Mussolini’s daughter, Edda Ciano, who was working for the Red Cross.
The tip of the shipwreck is 18 meters diving to a depth of 33 meters. It is in a protected position and away from currents.It is a 150 meter long and 2-3 dives are enough to visit whole the shipwreck.
