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?
The Best of Wrecks
is basically wreck diving in a normal way, with 2 dives per day and with a normal recreational configuration. If you choose this package you will be able to dive up to 75min max runtime for a dive, and also use of one stage. We will not be difficult if somebody in the group has more stages, or need other configuration. But the main part of a group on this diving is not doing longer deeper dives. This is fun wreck diving, with all safety included. Will be a good choice if a group has a mixed configuration and dive level.
MAX amount of 12 divers on the boat.
The Wreck Safari
is based on doing 2 dives a day, with one deep and one shallower dive as the last. Dive time can be up to 90min for the first dive and 60min for the last dive. We plan the dives together with the group onsite to find the best mix of deep and shallow dives so it´s easier to plan for the upcoming days.
It´s also included that divers can use 1 stages per diver. The diving fit´s RB and twinsets for back gas. We can handle most types of setups and have a long experience to handle this type of diving.
If you want to use UW scooter we need to know before arrival, this has to do with space onboard the boat and be able to plan accordingly.
MAX amount of 10 divers on the boat.
The Tec Safari
is based on doing 1 long dive per day. For some days it will be possible to do several dives, with the last as a shallower dive. Our goal for the week is to have a low-stress level and search for quality instead of the number of dives.
It´s also included that divers are using several stages and both RB and twinsets for back gas. We can handle most types of setups and have a long experience to handle these situations. If you want to use UW scooter we need to know before arrival, this has to do with space onboard the boat and be able to plan accordingly.
MAX amount of 8 divers on the boat.
