Deep Dive On A Wreck Full Of Toilets

Leigh Cunningham and Mark Andrews figure they’ve made the world’s deepest wreck dive on the Yolande, a 72m ship in Egypt which had been carrying a bunch of toilets.

The wreck sank in 1981, but slid into deeper waters because of a storm in 1985. It currently sits in water ranging from 145m to 160m, and perhaps even deeper. The two divers ventured to 160m on TRIMIX, which is admittedly a very deep dive.

The team plans to return to the Yolanda in August to dive even deeper in search of other parts of the ship. Cunningham works as a TDI Instructor Trainer, and Andrews is Technical Director at the London School of Diving.

Well done guys!
