Dive the “Graveyard of the Atlantic” with Giant Stride Dive Shop on our annual pilgrimage to NC!  I’ve been coming  back here every year since 2003 because the diving is freaking awesome. Come home with some Meg teeth, great memories of Great wrecks with Sand Tiger Sharks at good price with great viz! We will dive in Wilmington, NC on 6/14 first to do a Megalodon Shark Tooth (2 tank dive) then back to Morehead with Olympus Dive Center on 6/15 – 6/20 on some awesome shipwrecks in 80 to 130 fsw, viz is 40 to 100 ft. Water temp. is between 72 and 78 degrees! Some people wear 3mm suits but I wear a 5mm suit, a 7 will work as well! You can view the wrecks we will dive at www.olympusdiving.com. I’ll drive down on the evening of 6/12 at around 6pm to avoid traffic so I can take my own tanks and gear arriving sometime in the afternoon in Wilmington.
