Diving in Cinque Terre, there is also the possibility of discovering several wrecks: one of these is the wreck of Equa, a ship built in 1929 by the Parthenopean Armaturan Society of Naples which was “forced” to destroy submarines in 1940 and sank on June 10, 1944, due to a protrusion by a German unit, two miles off Riomaggiore. The ship is in good condition, and widely visited in the midst of anemones jewel, lobsters, chestnuts, sponges and oysters.
At about 45 meters, Equa is still on the east / west route of its sailing. You can see the top deck at a depth of 34 mt, the lower deck and the control room, where the lobsters are sheltered. Along the left keel is a machine gun with turret and a perfectly preserved anti-aircraft cannon. Continuing, for the most skilled, it is possible to access the machine room, toilets, to the aft where the depth bombing equipment is seen.
