    Andrea Doria?

    Did anyone dive the Doria last season, and if so, is it worth doing this season? I have a spot on a late July trip.

    The group I was scheduled to dive with last July got blown off for all but one dive then I heard Dave S and his group had mill pond conditions a couple of days later.
    Cheers,

    Dave....

    I was blown out last summer and also know that some trips were on lake like conditions. It's always hit or miss. From what I have heard, the ship is deteriorating so my suggestion is to take the plunge now.

    You'll be anchored next to us. Ya'll ought to just have COME with us... .

    Best chow, Best RB services, and most personalized diving available (6 max + crew aboard a 42 foot boat). (Or you could go on a mass-market cattle-boat like the rest of 'em....) Plus... we find china....... :D

    Our big-trip is a 9 day one... plenty of time to wait out weather and dive when it permits. Come for a 3 day quickie... you'll have a 50/50 blow-out potential. That's why I don't run 3 day quickie trips any longer.

    The Doria is still the Doria. Impressive in it's decline. Be careful.... this ain't Florida. More than one 'furriner' has come here and gone home on the swim platform face-first in his sleeping bag. There's "something" about this wreck. Just don't make mistakes. As far as I'm concerned, the wreck will improve for nice artifacts over the next 50 years. The flatter it gets, the more stuff is exposed. It just gets deeper.

    I will be knocking on your door next summer, Mr. ******. Just not quite ready yet.

    I want to see the Doria, knowing full well that "I should have been there in the 80's." It's just too much of an icon in tech diving to pass up. A piece of china? Well, that would be a wet dream of the highest order. I just want to see it, once.

    I agree, I had a blast on last year's trip with Dave S. and felt very lucky to have found that nice plate:) - of course, one needs to be willing to get into an area with potential...

    Andre': Figured that photo would drag you out of your Canadian winter torpor...I look at it all the time, it's framed on my wall. ;) . I'll expect nothing but the best in artifact grabbing from you this year too! I'll drop the chain right into the same spot, promise.


    Talk soon, July is coming.

    It sure would be sweet to be able to find that same location once more Dave - more to be done in that area me think:).
