Summer expeditions from Bergen
For the dedicated and
adventurous diver, Jane'R' can get you to wrecks other divers never see.
You can be actively involved in the research and planning & team work
essential in expeditions of this type! These 10 day trips may be extended
to include Northern & Southern Norway, Denmark, or the Baltic and
other destinations of your choice. The skipper has 30 years experience
diving the wrecks around these areas. By popular request from regular
divers, Jane'R' will be diving her way to Narvic & Lofoten in Northern
Norway during this summer. At Narvic there are numerous WW2 warships and
merchantships, the result of two naval battles. Jane'R' is licensed to
dive at these exclusive sites. At Lofoten there are many islands with some
of the best scenery in Norway. Every year Jane'R' discovers new wrecks in
Divers are picked up from the ferry terminal in Bergen, with diving
starting on the day of arrival on intact wrecks in none-tidal clear

sheltered locations of many of these wrecks (we have now found 75 in the

Scenic diving is everywhere with prolific marine life and
unfamiliar species on walls and wrecks. Almost continuous daylight
presents excellent photographic opportunities above and below water. The
weather at this time of year is usually more stable than the UK adding to
your enjoyment. There is no fixed itinerary whilst cruise-diving the fjords,
with so many sites to explore your involvement is most welcome. Diver or
non-diver you will be impressed with this beautiful country.
The convenience of diving from the Jane'R' give you the opportunity to
dive numerous sites every day. We pass interesting sites all the time that
need checking out. As divers we recognise the benefits of Nitrox, O2 is
now readily available from our own bank for safety & for suitably
qualified divers who want to maximise their dives. When using a suitable
computer, you really do see and dive the difference. All the boats
cylinders are O2 clean.
