IS THE THISTLEGORM really the best wreck-dive in the world? Is it the best dive in the world?
I’d have to answer with a resounding no to both of these claims. I suspect that most DIVER readers will be familiar with either the wreck itself or with its reputation, and can form their own view.
Is this the most intelligent, most spectacular and most interactive photographic publication about a wreck that I’ve ever seen? Well, I’d have to say yes. It is stunning.
The photos and images are top-quality, and it combines a wealth of material with “3D photogrammetry and digital reconstruction”. This is some awesomely clever stuff.
The four guys behind this publication have clearly dived their socks off, know their stuff and have taken sublime, mouth-watering images of the wreck.
This publication makes you feel that you’ve dived every lovely inch of this wreck with a limitless supply of gas and no concern for your bottom-time.
If you’re sent into a spin of excitement by the thought of all those classic motorbikes, trucks, aircraft spares, armoured vehicles and boxes of ammunition, then fill your boots. This is seventh heaven. I can imagine non-divers being persuaded to take up the sport just to experience what they’ve seen here.
