We are acting now!

Today is the day when the future and the past meet, so today is the perfect day to start engaging in both! Our story started in September 2016. Our first joint expedition led to the wreckage of SMS Friedrich Carl. This hitherto rarely dived wreck of a German battleship sunk in 1914 gave us a first impression of what an impressive “heritage” on the bottom of the Baltic Sea slumbers. In addition to the SMS Friedrich Carl, we were able to locate and identify the SS Edith Bosselmann and the SS Tristan. But there are countless other shipwrecks that rest perfectly conserved on the seabed due to the special conditions (low salt, low oxygen, dark and cold).

A visit to these wrecks is like a journey through time. These eyewitnesses in the dim light are more impressive and authentic than any museum. Unfortunately, these unique places are endangered in several ways. They are for the most part covered by lost nets, sometimes even in several layers.
