Scapa Flow is a body of water in the Orkney Islands, Scotland where, following the German defeat in WWI, 74 ships of the Imperial German Navy’s High Seas Fleet were scuttled here, making it a mecca for wreck lovers.
The SMS Cöln lies in 36 metres of water but extends up to 22 metres at the shallowest point. Unlike some of the warships, this wreck is not a complex wreck to navigate.
