Project Britannic 1997

Project Britannic 1997

The 260-meter-long ship (similar to the Titanic, but larger by about 10%) was used as a floating hospital during World War I. It sank 2 miles off the coast of Kea (Tzia) in Greece during his journey from England to the island of Lemnos. The cause of the wreck is not known with certainty: it either hit a mine or was torpedoed. It lies, almost intact, on its right side, at a depth of 120 meters and is considered the best wreck for technical diving in the world. We organized the first modern diving project in the britannic in November 1997 (Jacques Yves Cousteau dived before us in the ’70s).
