    I'm glad to hear it reopened. I made the trip in 1999, and I noticed one of the locals was the same guy when I was there in 1999. it's definitely a great trip for me. I just completed diving the Oriskany in Pensacola, Florida.
    These are the only aircraft carriers that you can dive.

    Hi there,
    I think you are talking about Edward Wilson. He is now working for the liveaboard operation. He is a great guy and very knowledgeable about the wrecks.

    Would love to hear about your diving in the Big O. PM me if you have the time.

    Pete

    I'm in for 2011, and doing some of Pete's Truk trip beforehand (see other thread)
    Might as well spend three weeks if you're going all that way, eh?

    Well, there is also Graf Zeppelin:
    Discovery in 2006
    On 12 July 2006 RV St. Barbara, a ship belonging to the Polish oil company Rebreather World - Rebreathers for Scuba Diving - the next step found a 265 m long wreck close to the port of Łeba (a BBC report says 55 km north of Władysławowo) which they thought was most likely Graf Zeppelin. On 26 July 2006 the crew of the Polish Navy's survey ship ORP Arctowski commenced inspection of the wreckage to confirm its identity, and the following day the Polish Navy confirmed that the wreckage was indeed that of Graf Zeppelin. She rests at more than 87 meters (264 feet) below the surface.
    In 2009 a team of scuba divers obtained permission from the Polish government to dive the wreck. The depth and conditions of the wreck mean that only advanced technical divers can realistically contemplate such a dive, but in any event, permission needs to be obtained from Polish authorities for any diving activities."

    For people going to Bikini a few pictures from Saratoga
