The North Carolina coast offers some of the most beautiful underwater scenery you can find in our region. It boasts the healthiest marine environment in North America. Pegged as “The Graveyard of the Atlantic,” it is also home to some of the most amazing shipwrecks available for exploration! Among the approximately 2000 sunken ships peppering the coastline are warships from World Wars I and II, an 18th-century schooner, and a 20th-century luxury liner.
Divers looking for even more heart-pumping excitement can swim with North Carolina’s native Sand Tiger sharks. Ranging in size from four to eight feet, these beautiful creatures often travel in groups. Take advantage of a unique opportunity to observe these docile predators in their natural environment when you dive with Olympus Dive Center!
