“Sank July 26, 1956 after collision with liner STOCKHOLM. In
about 200 feet. Passenger valuables, rich tableware and probably unopened
safes still on board.”

“The Andrea Doria seems to be broken heavily and the hull has
collapsed in several places. The upperstructure is disappearing in the sand.”

“Today, the Andrea Doria lies on her starboard side in 240 feet
of water. Her hull is now known to a small group of professional divers
as the Mt. Everest of diving. Those who dare to explore this wreck must
endure nitrogen narcosis, staged decompression hangs, strong currents, sharks,
and long surface intervals. Gary Gentile, author of the book ANDREA DORIA,
DIVE TO AN ERA, has made many such expeditions. On one of his ventures,
he and his companions recovered the Doria s stern bell. Most divers who
visit this wreck are more than happy to recover some of the fine china she
once carried.”
