The famous Shipwreck! The bottom of the sea of Kea has secrets to hide. The British ocean liner, a Titanic brother-ship, sank near Kea from a German mine in 1916. It was only her sixth trip. It was explored by the team of Jacques Yve Cousteau in 1975. Until today, few divers have approached the wreck at a depth of 120 meters and is considered as one of the most important in the Mediterranean and the greatest of all time. At the Reef of Koundouros, another wreck can be seen: Patris was a steamboat, which sank in 1868.
