We are in the process of arranging a dive expedition to Asia
(Philippines/Malaysia) in April/May 2006 to dive some WW2 wrecks.
Unfortunately I can't post a lot of details at this stage and will give more
details to interested people. The duration is approximately 2 weeks.
During WW2 many spectacular battles took place in the seas around
Philippines & Malaysia. At present we are considering a wreck which is lying
at +/- 130m, which has never been dived before. The main dives will be
between +/- 110m and 130m. The certification required for the main dives are
Expedition Trimix, preferably on Rebreather, unless you have a lot of money
to blow on Helium for open circuit. If you wish to penetrate the wreck (not
always possible on sunken battle ships), you also need a Technical Wreck
However, if you are a well experienced Tech Diver and want to participate,
we have a couple of slots open for support divers. As a support diver you
will have the option of getting the next certification in your training and
will be diving within your experience & certification depths, providing
support to the deeper divers.
Once again my apology for not being able to post more info. Usually these
expeditions are kept under wraps until after the fact. I can assure you this
will be a "once-in-a-lifetime" experience. Me or my company are not making
any money on these trips, we do these expeditions for the experience and
The expedition may be covered by a TV crew and you may have chance to be on
TV as well :) - no promises on that, we do not control the TV content and
the Director will interview whom ever he wants.
If you are interested or have questions, please post in the group and I will
