Dive the North Sea clean 5 years 8 expeditions


Underwater photographer Udo van Dongen takes you in 30 minutes with beautiful photos
on a journey through the Dutch North Sea. What are the characteristics of the areas? And what is
interesting for divers? What about currents, visibility, depth and marine life?

Udo also explains if and how you can get to these areas. Over the past 5 years, the Dive the North Sea Foundation has carried out 8 expeditions to the different areas in the North Sea: Coastal Zone, Bruine Bank, Klaverbank, Dogger Bank, Borkumse and Texel Stones, Frisian Front and Central Oyster Grounds. During these expeditions many new and rare species were discovered and wrecks were mapped and imaged.
