Giuseppe Dezza (TA - 35) Wrack
The Guiseppe Dezza, or TA-35, as it was called after being converted by the German navy in 1944, lies 35 meters aground about 10 nautical miles off the Istrian coast.
The explosion that preceded the sinking caused the front third of the Dezza to break apart.
After around 45 minutes on the boat, we raise the submersible buoy. As we descend, we are greeted by large schools of mackerel and, with a bit of luck, the odd eagle ray.
At the stern – the more interesting part of the wreck – we are immediately struck by the huge and well-preserved shipboard cannon. It is one of the many visible war materials on board the Guiseppe Dezza. In addition to these photo motifs, octopods, scorpion fish, conger eels and, in certain places, sleeping cat sharks are waiting to be discovered by us.
Due to its location and depth in the Fazana Channel between Pula and Rovinj, currents and cloudy visibility can occur from time to time, so the Giuseppe Dezza is reserved for experienced divers only. Diving into the wreck is not recommended.
