MSDS Marine created the virtual trail in collaboration with ArtasMedia and CyanSub, using archival evidence, blueprints, photographs, war diaries, geophysical and hydrographic surveys along with underwater photos and footage.  

The tour also includes interviews with many different individuals who are involved in researching the U8, these include submarine expert Kai Steenbuck, of the German U-boat Museum, recreational divers from Folkestone Dive Club who have explored the site many times, and Dave Batchelor of Neptune Charters, who has been involved with the wreck since its discovery. 

The U8 is a protected wreck and therefore anyone wishing to physically dive the site must have a licence which they can obtain through Historic England.
