Kronprins Gustav Adolf maritime historical underwater park

One of two stock anchor to be seen on the wreck

The wreck lies in an area of approximately 100 square meters several nautical miles southwest of the lighthouse island of Harmaja at a depth of 18 to 20 meters. The site consists of the bottom of the hull, its sides (which have collapsed), parts of the upper structure of the ship, cannons, cannon balls, two big anchors and a variety of loose objects. There are usually no strong currents and the visibility is between one and ten metres.

No special permission by the Maritime Museum is needed for diving at the park during daytime in the summer.

The idea behind underwater parks is to display a target of cultural historical value, e.g. a wreck. An underwater path in the park includes information boards of the target. Buoys are provided at the park to prevent damage by anchoring.
