Scapa Flow, Orkney Islands, Scotland

At the end of WWI the German High Seas Fleet of 74 ships was interned at Scapa Flow. Fearing surrender of the fleet to Britain and her allies, the fleet was scuttled on June 21st, 1919 on the orders of Rear-Admiral Von Reuter.

Although most of the fleet was salvaged by the company of Cox and Danks in the 1920s and 1930's, several battleships and escort vessels still remain making Scapa Flow one of the worlds great wreck dive destinations.
