THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOU BOOK DIVE CHARTERS
We try to help you find the dive for your experience and comfort level. We run charters Thursday, Friday, and Saturday Mid-May through Mid-September, as long as conditions allow. You can inquire as to which dive sites are available when you call to book. Remember, we cannot control the conditions or other diver experience. We really want everyone to have a safe dive and enjoy themselves.
As a certified diver, you should be able to plan and conduct your own dives, with a buddy, in conditions within the limits of your certification. A dive guide can help you get the most out of your dives in an unfamiliar location and avoid obvious risks. But ultimately, you are in charge of your own dive from start to finish.
You must determine your own fitness to dive on any given day and decide if you’re comfortable with the dive conditions and location. Keep in mind that we have a 14 day cancellation policy. If you decide not to dive for any reason less than 14 days before your dive, you will not receive a refund. Your safety underwater is ultimately your own responsibility, including checking your equipment, even if you’ve rented it. The dive shop does maintain the equipment and have it inspected, but you have a responsibility to double-check and to assemble and use it correctly. If you receive faulty gear or you don’t know how to operate it, you must let the dive guide know immediately.
Need Gear? We have full gear rentals available. Air or Nitrox. If you need rental equipment you can come to the shop prior to the dive and try on gear, and then we will bring it to the boat for you. If you only need tanks and weights, tell us when you book what size tank and we will have it at the dock for you. We know you are on vacation and will try to minimize your running around. Don't forget your certification card. We recommend taking a picture of it on your phone.
It is your responsibility to have your certification card
and log book. You will need to have logged a dive within the previous 12 months or take a refresher course.
HALF DAY BOAT leaves dock at @7:00 returns @1:00pm to 2:00pm. These are average times and actual time depends on dive site, conditions, etc.
Dive sites include Advance (AR140), Jackson, LCU, U85, and new dives sites.
You will need to show proof of dives in similar conditions within the past year or hire a dives master.
Depths of these wrecks are 70 - 100 ft.
To book a dive charter, we recommend you have an advanced diver certification and have proof of experience diving in the ocean north of Florida to at least 80 ft. You need to be comfortable dealing with possible current, low vis and thermoclines. If not, then you will need to hire the divemaster to dive with you or dive with an experienced buddy. We recommend having dive insurance such as DAN due to the long distance to a chamber if you should require one.
If you are not comfortable diving off a boat or do not have a buddy, Guided dives are available (diving with an instructor or divemaster) There is an additional charge for this.
$50 per person
Beach dives are a great way to gain experience diving in the ocean off NC without the depth of our boat dives. Each dive is guided by a Divemaster or Instructor. As with every dive, you need to be able to set up your own equipment and know your sizes and how much weight you need. You will need to have logged a dive within the past year or sign up for a refresher class.
These may be perfect for you if:
1) Newly certified diver with little or no ocean experience.
2) Rusty Diver who wants to refresh their skills.
3) Are VERY comfortable in the ocean.
4) Any diver who wants the experience of a beach dive.
5) You are in good physical condition and can walk @50 yards across the beach with your equipment on (50lbs), are flexible enough to put your fins on in the ocean and can fin out about 125 yards on the surface.
If you show up at the beach and cannot remember how to correctly set up your equipment, you will not be allowed to dive and will not receive a refund of your dive fees. This is for your safety and others on the dive.
All of our beach dives are guided and all of our guides are experienced, insured and active NAUI instructors or divemasters. On these dives, we guide you to the wreck site and run a wreck reel for you to follow. You will need to come with a dive buddy or team up with another diver. Junior divers need to have an experienced diver with them. If you need further help or want to hire your personal instructor or dive master, that can be arranged for an extra fee.
We usually dive in Kill Devil Hills or Nags Head.
Times: Changes seasonally but we usually meet at 7:00am
We are a full service Scuba Dive Shop and rent all equipment you need for scuba diving
Rental gear is additional. If you give us your sizes when you book we will bring a selection of dive gear with us to save you running up and down the beach. Of course, you can always stop buy the shop the day before the dive to try on the gear.
We've got spearfishing charters, classes, gear for sale and rent.
Start to dive. We have a dive class for beginners and every level of diver.
