World class wreck diving

It's comes as no surprise that the people at the premier German tech magazine Wetnotes are into wrecks. Their January issue featured my story about wreck diving in Gulen, Norway on a 15-page spread.

The feature gives specific information about the wrecks of Frankenwald, Ferndale, Parat, Havda, Bandak, KNM Uller and Oldenburg, plus general information about the area.

The story also offers a list with most of the 20+ wrecks dived by Gulen Dive Resort, the only operator in the area.

The rescue steamer Parat lies next to the huge German freighter Ferndale, forming a unique twin wreck - a spectacular experience even in the dark!

Now available online!

The magazine is available both in print and in a digital version, and the big 15-page spread was presented to their online audience. The online version is available through iTunes.
