Holland 5 Submarine Diver Trail

Details of our visits to the Holland No.5 can be found and booked here. NAS members get discounts off trips so make sure you join and login to your members account first to get your discount.

Between 2016 and 2018 with grant support from Historic England the NAS developed a new virtual diver trail on the protected wreck of the Holland No.5 Submarine.

The virtual dive was created using over 1,700 digital photographs taken by Martin Davies from InDepth Photography imported into Agisoft Photoscan. The resulting accurate photogrammetry survey was provided to Mike Postons from 3Deep Media Ltd to import into the immersive VR experience with additonal supporting information and links. We have posted a "How to" video on our YouTube Channel to help get the most out of the trail.
