Deeper Dorset is all about locating undiscovered shipwrecks, aircraft wrecks, filming and recording them but most importantly researching and telling the stories. Anything maritime related to Dorset is also fair game and in the past among other things we saved the historic racing yacht Dolly Varden found in a Dorset field and a collection of torpedoes that were built right here in Weymouth.
The sole reason I started diving was for the adventure and I soon realised the adventure didn’t have to stop back on dry land as I became more and more fascinated by Dorset’s rich maritime history. Grahame Knott
