Hi Adam,

This great site shows :

9 Oct 1944. U-978 carried out the longest Schnorchel patrol of the war, 68 days from Bergen, Norway on 9 Oct, 1944 to Bergen again on 16 Dec, 1944. This even surpassed the much more famous 66-day submerged run U-977 undertook while en route to Argentina to surrender there in August, 1945.

yours friendly

Eric-Jan
