    German Submarine U-352

    I dove the U-352 last weekend! It was a really fun dive and my first sub. We went out of Morehead City with Discovery Diving. They run a good and busy shop.

    The sub sits with the bow heading close to due North on your compass. It is about 120' to the sand. The sub is small with little relief. As a result the dive will log as about a 110' dive, maybe a little less on a good day with no current. She lists slightly to her starboard side and is settled in the sand and a medium size barracuda patrols her.

    The sub is a 218' type VII-C German Underseaboat (U boat). See attached links for further details. German submarine U-352 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Wreck of the U-352 ‪U-352‬‏ - YouTube

    The day we were there the current was rather strong from the surface all the way down the anchor line to the sub. Once on the sub the current let up a little and was manageable but still something to contend with. Unfortunately due to the strong currents most did not take their cameras but I did manage to obtain a few fair pictures.

    Good judgment comes from experience.
    Experience comes from bad judgment.

    A series of unrecognized mistakes does not constitute experience.

    I'm a NMOF and proud of it.

    There is an aquarium in Pine Knoll Shores about 10 miles from Morehead City that has a 3/4 size replica of the U-352.

    Thanks for the pictures. That looks like something that would be well worth the training.

    +1 Olympus runs a great op. I'm trying to get back there a little later, June 6th-12th I think. I haven't done the U352 yet maybe this year! I've got the U853 here in RI but the vis is not as good. We had 100' vis on the Papoose down in NC last year!
