Sharks, wrecks, and beautiful beaches
Where we are diving
Join us as we head to North Carolina, home to the Sand Tiger shark, an impressive looking but docile shark. Sand Tiger encounters are common occurrences in the offshore waters and are often present in large numbers. The sharks range in size from four to over eight feet long! Sand Tigers typically swim with their mouths open, smiling for photos, and proudly displaying three rows of ferocious teeth. North Carolina is also referred to as the “Graveyard of the Atlantic.” More than 2,000 ships have sunk in these waters since people began keeping records in 1526.
We will be diving with Olympus Dive Center, which is located in Morehead City, North Carolina. Olympus Diver Center is a thriving, full-service dive center that runs dive trips year-round. Their dive boats are built to comfortably take divers to dozens of wrecks off the coast of North Carolina and the wrecks are also a habitat for an incredible variety of marine life from big to small. Divers are required to have a minimum of 25 logged dives with two boat ocean dives, two dives to 70 feet or greater, and two dives in the last 12 months. Minimum age of 15 years old. Advanced Open Water Certified is preferred. Join trip leader, Aaron Parson and explore the Atlantic!
