Iceland: Expedition Hamilton

My good friends Team Blue Immersion and their great sponsors OceanReef have just premiered their new Documentary live at the DEMA 2013 show in Florida and have now released it to the public after 3 years planning and hard work.

The Team travel to Iceland to dive some of the amazing dive locations available in Iceland, especially Silfra a once in a lifetime dive in cold absolutely crystal clear waters between two tectonic plates.  I’ve walked between these plates in iceland and its amazing to be able to have the American Continent on your left and Europe on your right..within touching distance!  So to dive this must be even more amazing.

But the real reason for the expedition was to dive the Alexander Hamilton a US Coast Guard Cutter that was sank by a German U-boot in January 1942 and place a memorial  plaque.  Lying at 30 miles out and 100 meters down  this was the first dive team ever to dive this wreck.  With support of the families the team managed to successfully place the memorial to all those still out on patrol.

Take some time and give it a watch as the team dive some amazing locations and honour those who served their country.

Great work Jonas Samuelsson, Erik Brown, Chris Haslam and Aron Arngrimsson and OceanReef!
