Sunday Charter Larchmont/Heroine Wreck Dive Larchmont Wreck Dive The Larchmont is a side (paddle) wheel steamer that was rammed in a blizzard by the schooner Harry P. Knowlton in February of 1907. She sits in 130 FSW. The loss of life in that tragegy numbered more than 200 people. This is a very advanced dive with lots of current, making it a tidal (slack tide) dive. The 2nd dive is the Heroine wreck at a maximum depth of 80 feet. This Charter, Canned Air, and Giant Stride Dive Shop, requires an advanced cert. with some experience diving to depths greater than 100 ft. in New England (or similar) waters. A redundant air source, lift bag or sausage, and wistle or horn is required. Cost is $165.00 per diver and WE ONLY DO THIS ONE ONCE A YEAR….only 6 spots are available. Reservations are made by full pre-payment that is non refundable. The Canned Air leaves the dock at 7:00 AM! Be there at 6:30am to load gear…..If you cancel your reservation you forfeit the full payment. If our captain cancels the trip, we issue a full refund if you paid in cash and a store credit if paid by credit card. Cancellations by our Captain are made on the day of the charter, one hour before sailing time. We cannot guarantee dive sites, alternate dive site selection does not constitute a cancellation or a refund. Please be at the new slip which is Point View Marina 11 Sherman Rd, Wakefield, RI 02879, to board “Canned Air” 1/2 hour before sailing time, to fill out a waiver, present a certification card and get fully loaded 15 minutes before departure time.
