2002 Andrea Doria Photos II

All images on this page 2002 by Christina Young.

These are pictures from the 2002 Seeker 2-day expedition to the Andrea Doria, approximately 107 miles off Montauk, New York, under 250 feet of water in the North Atlantic, which took place on July 13-14, 2002.

For more information on the Andrea Doria, the Grand Dame of the Sea, check out the New Jersey Scuba Diving Andrea Doria Page and the Seeker's Andrea Doria page.  There also two good books out about diving the Andrea Doria.  The first is Andrea Doria: Dive To An Era by Gary Gentile (1989), and the second is Deep Descent: Adventure and Death Diving the Andrea Doria by Kevin McMurray (2001).

After we are tied in it's time to go have some fun.  Coming down the anchor line we see that we are tied into the promenade near where 2nd class ends and 3rd class begins.  A huge crack in the wreck is shown in the lower left of the picture.  The whole wreck rapidly deteriorating and falling apart.
Some stage bottles are stowed near the tie-in point, above a porthole.
This is the door to the men's room in the 2nd class pool veranda, on the boat deck.
Heading inside, there are various fixtures on the "wall".
Debris on the floor includes toilet seats, mirror frames and other various fixtures.
