Historic Wrecks, Sharks, Tropicals and More!

North Carolina August 24-27, 2017

Join your fellow DSOM Crew for a few days under the waves in North Carolina's Graveyard of the Atlantic! We’ll have the chance to plunge into historic shipwrecks including the German U-352, Atlas, Indra, Cassimir, and Papoose just to name a few. These wrecks provide habitat for both tropical and northeast fish. It is also common to see Sand Tiger sharks up to 10 feet long, huge spiny lobster, and lionfish are now frequenting the waters. Not only are these wrecks beautiful, they still hold historical artifacts.

We will be diving Thursday to Sunday with Olympus Dive Center in Morehead City, North Carolina. Join us for four days of adventure. Conditions are perfect this time of year! Water temperature is between 75-85 degrees and visibility is usually more than 60 feet. As with any diving on the East Coast, it could get bumpy so bring your favorite seasickness medication...
