"Le Natal" was a liner (130m long) that sunk on 30 aug 1917 due to a collision into another liner "Le Malgache". At that very moment she was sailing under the cover of darkness (and without any light) to avoid been targeted by German U-Boots.
This is an EXTREME Trimix dive, far away from the shore, reserved for the most qualified and trained divers. It has been attempted only a couple of time in the recent years. Moreover it is necessary to have very calm sea conditions.
