Zonqor Point Marsascala is on the Southern side of the island and is famous for the two tugboats that rest there. They are the St Michael and the No.10 tugboat which lie in the center of the harbour entrance opposite the Marsascala swimming pool complex. These two small ships were deliberate sunk here to create a new wreck site, which could be dived in bad weather conditions.
Entry into the water is made from across the saltpans behind the old gun post building opposite the car park. The wrecks are a five minutes swim from the rocks parallel to shore on a sandy sea bed, at 21 meters deep. The bows of the ships are pointing out of the bay and the wrecks are lined up one behind the other. They are not difficult to find. If you feel you need more instructions in finding them I'm sure my old friends Manual/Abigail Borg at Dive Med situated at the pool complex will be more than happy to help you.
