Join one of our wreck safari and treat yourself to some serious rust.
Our area was of strategic importance during WWII, and the Allies realised what they needed to do to fight back against Nazi Germany. In the evenings, you can learn more about the history of the wrecks and why they sank – and see pictures so you know what to expect the next day.
Our unique coastline are made for a wreck safari
German fighters were stationed at Herdla, and when the Allies managed to destroy the airport, Allied bombers were free to attack the ship traffic that went north and south. After many hectic attacks, we now have more than 25 vessels that we can dive to. In addition, we have of course many great wrecks from the post-war period and we dive to these regularly.
A thorough briefing will be given before each dive. We will do our best to make sure you get the most out of every wreck dive – and other dives too, of course. But on the wreck events, rust is all that counts. Hanging out with other wreck divers, sharing tall tales over a glass in the pub at night while watching great images and videos – could it be better?
