Here are some of the highlights from the dive on the U-166 and SS Robert E Lee from on board the EV Nautilus with Bob Ballard & Richie Kohler. These are all screen captures from the video cameras aboard the remote operated vehicles (ROV’s) Hercules and Argus. To give some perspective I am also including a couple of archive shots of the two vessels. For more images go to the Nautilus site.
The images will help solve the mystery surrounding the sinking of these two vessels and will feature in an upcoming Nat Geo / NOVA episode.
Special thanks go to the crew of the Nautilus, Producer Kirk Wolfinger of Lone Wolf Media for inviting me to join the expedition, sound man Rob Sylvain for help during the shoot and of course wreck diver Richie Kohler
