Forget the Honey Bear, this bad boy lies at 33 feet at Cove 1.

OceanGate and Argus Expeditions are planning a submersible dive expedition to the Doria this June with the 5-man sub Cyclops. The mission is to create a 3D map of the wreck with multi-beam sonar and photogrammetry.

Anyone on this board been to the Doria or other wrecks in that area?


No, but I have dove the Honey Bear which is pretty cool. Some people even like to dive it every week.
