Mystery hunters of the Baltic Sea – Goya’s Baltic Titanic – film

On Monday, 8 November, Canal+ will broadcast the eighth and last episode of the series Mystery Hunters of the Baltic. This time the Baltictech group will bring closer the still little-known wreck of the Goya ship.

The production Łowcy tajem nic Bałtyku is a continuation of the well-received series Tajemnice wreków Bałtyku. In the new production Tomasz Stachura and a group of Baltictech divers explore and research the history of subsequent wrecks from the Polish part of the Baltic Sea. After the wrecks of destroyer ORP Wichertanker Terratorpedo boat Tupolev G5U-boat U-768, a new discoverya floating workshop for seaplanes Flugssicherungsschiff Boelcke and ship Akademik KarpinskyThis time we will learn about the history of the ship Goya.

Each episode of the series takes a closer look at a wreck and the history of one ship that rests on the bottom of the Baltic Sea. During the production of the episodes, the Baltictech team came across new and previously unknown information. This not only provided a more complete picture of the ships and crews in question, but also revealed facts that were previously unknown.

Undoubtedly, such flavours will further encourage wreck d iving enthusiasts to watch the Baltic Mystery Hunters series. On the other hand, it is a production so unique that true wreck diving enthusiasts do not need additional persuasion.

Episode preview of Mystery Hunters of the Baltic Goya

The ship was built by the Germans in the Norwegian shipyard Akers Mekaniske Verksted in Oslo in 1940. In 1945, the Germans reclassified Goya as a military transport ship and used her during the evacuation operation Hannibal.

The ship made her last voyage on 16 April 1945. The convoy, in which Goya was also sailing, was attacked by Soviet aircraft. On the same day, in the evening, the damaged vessel was discovered and sunk by a Soviet submarine mine-layer L-3. As a result of the sinking of the Goya, at least 6,000 people died. In this respect it was the second biggest tragedy in the history of shipping. More people died only on board another German ship Wilhelm Gustloff.

Mystery hunters of the Baltic Sea

The series consists of 8 episodes and is aired on Canal+. The eighth and last episode will be shown on Monday, the 8th of November, at 9.00 p.m. on the Canal+ Premium and Canal+ Premium HD channels. A repeat performance will be shown on the same day at 10 p.m. on Canal+ 1 and Canal+1 HD. A day later, the episode will hit the Canal+ online platform and will be available in the VOD system.

Although the episode devoted to the Goya closes the series Łowcy tajemnic Bałtyku [Catchers of the Baltic mysteries], which we could watch on Canal+ this autumn, all eight episodes, during which Tomasz Stachura and the Baltictech group presented the history of many interesting shipwrecks, can be viewed at any time in the VOD system on the nc+ Go platform and on the player.pl.


Will a thorough exploration of the wreckage of the SS Karlsruhe reveal what the Germans were trying to export on the last transport from besieged Königsberg?
