Radosław Bizoń – underwater photographer, IANTD instructor, author of a diving publications. Dives for 22 years. Co-founder of the expedition to the wreck of Schleswig-Holstein and ORP Grom. My biggest passion is underwater photography of the wrecks, especially in cold waters such as the Baltic Sea. Over the years I am trying to reach wrecks of both the known and the small and forgotten, because each of them has a story to tell, which is worth listening to.

We travel all over the world in search of interesting wrecks and just right next to us, we have individuals such as Mermaid. There is only a few vertical wrecks, but few people know that one of them is in the bottom of the Gulf of Finland. Mermaid is a carist ship “monitor” class which sank in a storm in 1893 with all of its crew. It was discovered in 2003, stuck vertically into the bottom at a depth of 70 meters. This ship is unique because of its history, structure, and the way rests on the bottom. I will bring you a bit about his figure and tell about the dives done on it in June 2013, which is 110 years since the sinking.
