Sailing in Greece: Aegean Adventure dive on WWII Messerschmitt

Our new guests Glen and Tara from New York state stepped aboard Margarita and with the rest of the flotilla returned from Santorini our small flotilla left Ios on Monday for the island of Skhinousa in the Petit Cyclades. We’re always interested in exploring new islands and with a small flotilla this was the perfect opportunity. At rural Skhinousa, we stumbled across a spectacular restaurant called Sweet Deli. The crews were driven up to the restaurant by the locals…and treated to some of best Greek gastronomy we’ve found in 20 years in Greece. Delicious, saganaki cheese, rocket, greek and bean salads followed by fresh tuna, chicken rolled with sundried tomatoes or local calamari. Our main reason for heading into the Petit Cyclades was to hunt down a WWII plane wreck that we’d received reports had crashed off the coast of Iraklia. It took a bit of finding, with Andy from the UK trailed on a line behind Margarita but we got there and couldn’t believe how intact the Messerschmitt was at just 12 metres deep. Captain Steven Parry reported that inside the cockpit the controls of the plane were still intact after all this time. It was truly a fantastic swim stop for everyone and a place we hope to visit again soon. Thank you Andy for not only your keenness to help find the Messerschmitt, but for taking this incredible shot of Captain Steven free diving.
