El Reggio Messina era un ferri de 122 m d’eslora, 17 m de manega i 6 m de calat, dedicat al transport de passatgers i trens. Quan li va arribar el moment del retir, es va convertir en una sala de festes i restaurant pels Jocs Olimpics del 1992. Tot i aixo, les fortes plujes que van caure van provocar que s’enfonses al port de Barcelona i es va acabar decidint que es reflotes i es portes a la Costa Brava per conventir-lo en una atracció per als submarinistes de la zona.
Actualment es troba trencat en tres parts (popa, zona central i proa), sent la popa la part mes gran i ben conservada a uns -33 m. La coberta es troba a uns -27 m on s’an obert els laterals per facilitar l’acces dins el barco, uns metres mes endavant trobem la famosa torreta a uns -32 m envoltada de bancs de peixos.
