The Rozi tugboat in Cirkewwa is another wreck which can be found at a bearing of 300 degrees from below the lighthouse. This wreck can be found after about a 100 metre swim. The visibility is between 10 - 30 metres.
It was sunk in 1992 as a tourist attraction, intended to be visited by Captain Morgan's submarine tours. The submarine nowadays does not operate any longer, thus this wreck is now visited by hundreds of divers every year. This tugboat was originally built in Bristol in 1958 by Charles Hill and Sons Ltd and until 1969, it was used in Liverpool by Johnston Warren Lines Ltd. Then it was sold to Rea Towing Co. also in Liverpool until 1972 when then was sold to Malta Ship Towage Ltd. In 1981 she was then sold to Tug Malta to be used in the Grand Harbour in Valletta. In 1992 it was bought by Captain Morgan Cruises.
The Rozi is my favourite wreck dive on the island, its sits perfectly on a sand base bottom. The wreck is a 30 meter harbour tug, full of marine life and divers can watch sea breams, scorpion fish, rainbow wrasses and cardinal fish. This wreck is fully intact except for the propeller and engines which were removed before it was sunk.
It’s in a depth range between 25 and 35 meters. Upper deck lies at 25meters and rudder is at a depth of 36 meters. This wreck is home to 1000`s of fish and lies on a sandy seabed. On the way to the Rozi, one can observe a huge anchor standing on its own. Near to the Rozi wreck is also an arch, located at the end of the reef. Before you arrive to the arch, one will meet two swim through tunnels where a large number of fish can be seen, such as barracuda and silver beam.
