The bottom slowly deepens to about 5-6 meters - then follows a steeper slope down to 10 meters. Twin is found by following the bottom in direction 90 deg until a depth of around 10 meters is reached. Then turn directly north and follow a depth of 10-11 meters.
The small wreck of Twin is one of the most popular diving targets of Denmark. The wreck is 9.6 meters long and 3.5 meters wide with the bow at 10 deg. NNE. The deck is slanted towards the beach. Unfortunately the wreck is now in severe decay and is found in an ever more collapsed state.
Just recently two more small wrecks have appeared - one very close to Twin - the other somewhat south of Twin!
Due to the low salinity of the sea water - the wreck is mostly covered with mussels and starfish and sporting a large school of goldsinnies. It is not uncommon to see various kinds of flounders as well as cod and the occasional lumpsucker.
The challenge of Twin itself is to find it! Navigational skill is required - especially on night dives - for which Twin also provides a fine scene.
If you desire a glimpse of the deeper and more salinity craving life of Øresund (the sound that separates Denmark from Sweden) - you can continue directly east from Twin and reach deeper than 20 meters. Here you can find large whelks, nudibranchs and various kinds of sea anemones.
