Wreck diving video from the S/S Helga Ferdinand

Since videos are a great source of inspiration for me I am constantly on the look-out for good clips. I was particularly happy to find this amazing video of the wreck of the German cargo ship S/S Helga Ferdinand, produced by Northsea Explorers.

S/S Helga Ferdinand sank after being attacked by British airplanes, while traveling in a convoy along the Norwegian coast in November of 1944.

The ship lies at a depth of 40 – 65 meters in a sheltered part of the fjord that surrounds Bremanger in Midt-Gulen, Norway.

On Vimeo, Northsea Explorers explain that “the 4 minute vid is a result of 5 dives on the wreck with bottom times ranging from 30-45 minutes, over 2 hours with footage, six divers, bringing the total divetime close to 400 minutes.”

Working with suggestive lighting of the wreck and very nice camera movements, the result is nothing short of spectacular.

The team is currently working on a documentary on the legendary German cruiser “Blücher“, which sunk in Norway during WWII.

Enjoy!
