Cedar Pride

Jordan,Akaba Bay

Mone Dos was built in Gijon in SPain, and was launched in 1964 as a general cargo ship. She changed owners a few times before she ended up in Lebanese ownership in the late 1970's. While at anchor in Aqaba harbor, she caught fire in the engine room 2. August 1982. She was soon full ablaze, and two men from the crew lost their lives in the accident. Heavily damaged but still afloat, she was laid up in the harbor of Aqaba for several years before she was scuttled as an artificial reef and dive attraction 25. November 1985. Rumors says that she was scuttled after wishes from King Hussain in 1986, who wanted to attract more tourism and diving. The wreck rest today on her port side on a depth of 10 to 30 meter, about 150 meters from shore outside Aqaba.
