    Question Dive trip in Narvik (Norway)

    Hi


    We are going to Narvik in April to dive the WW2 wrecks.
    We are trying to get the list of wrecks that we could dive in the Narvik Harbour and in the nearby fjords, to define our diving plans to organise a bit in advance the delivery of Oxy and Helium.


    So far, I am able to get info on the wrecks within the harbour, but can't find anything in the nearby Fjords.


    Anybody with dive experiences/knowledge in Narvik nearby could share and give me some hints, wrecks list, site etc... would be the welcome :-)


    Thanks in advance
    G.

    Here is some info from the Narvik liveboard web site. If you have your own boat, then go to the harbour master and they will give you the map of the wreck. Some of them you can dive, but those to close to the shipping lane are forbidden

    Thanks for the input. Strangely enough, when I went to this site I was not able to see the wrecks. Now I can and even with comments in English


    All of them are in the Narvik harbour, aren't they?
    Any other site referencing nearby Narvik?
    Do you know an email of the "harbour master"?


    Thanks again for you're very valuable feedback!

    Hi,


    we went to Narvik in 2005 and 2010 for 3 weeks each visit. We approx dived 30 different wrecks also farer away e.g. U711 and Black Watch at Kilbotn, near Harstad.


    If you only stay a short periode 1-2 weeks there is no need to check for other Wrecks. If you have plenty of time, there are a bunch of other nice wrecks arround.


    If possible, bring your own boat, this makes everything much easier.




    The pic is shown me after IDA 71 dive to U711 at Kilbotn.


    Rgs, Stephan

    Look up "narvik sportsdykkerklubb" on facebook. They might share you some info.
    I have dived all the shallower wrecks in and around Narvik, but non of the deep/tec ones. (40+)
    Tried to find you some maps, buuut they where not to be found on my cell at the moment.

    Dont think anyone is forbidden at the moment, but one needs a boatman while diving, and report divers, time and wreck you will be diving, to the harbor master.
