Dive Scapa Flow has been THE definitive guide to diving the fabled wrecks of Scapa Flow, one of the world's greatest wreck diving locations. This edition marks the 100th anniversary of the scuttle of the 74 warships of the interned German High Seas Fleet at Scapa Flow on 21st June 1919- the greatest act of maritime suicide the world has ever seen.

The dark depths of Scapa Flow conceal the remains of several of the Kaiser's WW1 High Seas Fleet. three massive 575-feet long 26,000-ton Konig-class battleships await exploration. Four 5,000-ton, 500-foor long, kleiner kreuzers, Brummer, Coln, Dresden and Karlsruhe lie on their beam ends open for inspection along with parts that remained on the seabed of many other High Seas Fleet vessels as they themselves were lifted to the surface during the greatest feat of underwater salvage that has ever taken place.

Scapa Flow's war graves, including HMS Royal Oak, HMS Vanguard and HMS Hampshire are off limits to divers today but their stories are recounted to preserve the memory of those that perished.
