History Of Diving Museum To Host Britannic Diver Richie Kohler

If you live in the Florida Keys, you’ll have a chance next month to meet deep diver Richie Kohler face-to-face.

The History of Diving Museum in Islamorada, which this past weekend celebrated its 10th anniversary, will be hosting Kohler for a talk on his expeditions to the Britannic shipwreck at 7 p.m. on October 19, 2016. Kohler and Charlie Hudson, co-authors of the book “Mystery of the Last Olympian: Titanic’s Tragic Sister Britannic,” will discuss the book.

The ship itself lies 400 feet below the surface in Greek waters and was sunk during the First World War.

Kohler, who was featured in Robert Kurson’s book “Shadow Divers” and co-hosted the History Channel show “Deep Sea Detectives,” spoke to last November, where he discussed his 40-minute dive exploring the wreck as well as the more than six hours of decompression time.
