The Mystery of Britannic
A wonderful trailer by U-Film, who have been exploring and filming the wreck for years. Thier upcoming 2 hour film surrounding the mysterious loss of HMHS Britannic during World-War-One artfully combines present day exploration of Titanic's tragic sister with stunning recreations of the events and key players in this historical event. Using cutting edge underwater technology, they have captured images of this magnificent shipwreck that has never been seen before. Stay tuned for more info on the films release.
Divers Tell Tale Of Mystery Sub
Only 60 miles off the coast of New Jersey, in 230 feet of dark, frigid water, lays the twisted hulk of World War II U-boat — a German submarine that once prowled the American coastline.
Decades after the war, a team of daring divers found the wreck. They didn't do it in the safety of a mini-sub like the one that found the Titanic.
As 60 Minutes II correspondent Mika Brzezinski learns, they risked their lives to swim down to it with just the air tanks on their backs.
Nazi Attack Against America
A short promo reel of upcoming the documentary film, "Nazi Attack against America". It's about "Operation Drumbeat", when German U-boats first attacked the United States. I worked with Lone Wolf Media group on this NOVA/National Geographic project and had the chance to dive the wreck of U-85 off the North Carolina coast and also explore the U-166 and other deep shipwrecks in the Gulf Of Mexico with Bob Ballard aboard the Nautilus.

Secret Underwater Caves of the Dominican Republic

We had permission from the Dominican Govt to not only dive these closed sites, but to handle the artifacts and then put them back in place.after filming. It was the some of the best cave diving I have done...so far and the ability to see first hand pre-Columbian Taino artifacts that had been undisturbed for over five hundred years was awesome!
