Something for World War II Buffs

As far as WW2 wreckage is concerned, the Mediterranean is a treasure trove. Greece’s Ministry of Culture & Sport has just announced the opening of 91 listed ship and aircraft wrecks to recreational divers, with more on the way. The majority are deeper than 100-feet, with a preponderance of German JU88 bombers among British and Italian warplanes. via Undercurrent

For those of you who haven’t dove the Med my biggest surprise was you may need a drysuit for deep dives. I had only packed a 3 mil and the rest of the group was in 7 mil or dry :( Unlike California or NJ I was able to warm up during the surface interval :)

Or just dive off of Block Island for the last German submarine U853 sunk in WWII and in US recreational depth waters. It is a lot closer and you can drop into the sub in front of the conning tower with the periscope still on... :)
