Dive with Olympus Dive Center

Scuba diving in North Carolina is truly an incredible experience. Fed by the warm clear waters of the Gulfstream, we have incredible visibility and comfortable temperatures making NC Diving always top rated by scuba enthusiasts and dive publications. 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, and Olympus Dive Center knows the best wrecks to dive off the coast of North Carolina. So if North Carolina wreck diving is what you’re interested in, we’re your premier dive charter with the knowledge and experience to show you a great time!

Extended-Day Charter
An extended-day charter is any 2-dive charter running beyond the full-day dive sites. Bottom times and surface intervals remain the same, but the boat departs earlier and returns later.

These trips are wonderful opportunities to visit less-frequented sites such as the Normannia, the Lobster Wreck, the Cassimir, and the Proteus. These trips are offered periodically during the summer. Check with the dive shop for specific dates. Please arrive no later than 5:30 am for a 6:30 am departure.
