Badewanne is a non-profit organization representing a group of voluntary divers that have been documenting shipwrecks in the Gulf of Finland (known during WW II as “Badewanne”) for more than 15 years. We are a multi talented team with a broad skill set on underwater video, still photography, drawing & painting, 3D modelling, underwater engineering, marine biology and environmental sciences.
Our mission is to publish our research findings and documentary material to make the general public aware of the unseen maritime history. Our projects vary from pristine 17th century merchant vessels to large WW II era fighting ships that were lost in action.
Regardless of the original nationality, we respect all wrecks that we are documenting as graves of those sailors and soldiers who once faced their faith while at the sea.
We are working in close collaboration with
the Finnish Board of Antiques, Military Museum of Finland and navies, archives and researchers around the world.
Information on documentaries we are currently working on will be released soon.
