The boats trapped there are U-2505, U-3004 and U-3506. They are lying on the surface at low tide but are not accessible to the casual observer and stationed on private property. I believe the bunker has been filled with gravel now to prevent injuries as the area is considered dangerous.
The fate below is an incorrect but a very common one in many sources.
Previously recorded fate
