Hyde/Markham with Scuba-Now

UPDATED INFORMATION: We are booked! We have a TSG-exclusive, 10-person boat booked for Saturday, August 17.

Here are the details for how to assure yourself a spot on the boat:
• Call Scuba-Now at[masked]-5111.
• Tell them you are calling to pay your deposit for Laura’s charter on August 17.
• Pay your $50/diver deposit.
• Tell them if you want Nitrox or air – all of us will likely be diving steel 100s.  **Tell them if you want different tanks.**
• Update your RSVP with a “deposit paid” comment.

You are not guaranteed a spot on the boat until you have paid a deposit with Scuba-Now!

With 6 paid spots, we get one free -- so if all 10 of the current "yes" divers on the RSVP list go, we will each pay $81!  That is an insanely good rate for diving the coast anywhere in North Carolina, and it includes tanks (which generally rent for $17+ per day)!

Please pay your deposits ASAP!  I will change RSVPs for anyone who hasn't paid a deposit by August 7.

On charter day, we will meet at the shop at 6:30am to do waivers and show them our C-cards. From there, we will drive over to the dock on Wrightsville Island.  (Anyone is welcome to go by the shop before charter day to take care of waivers.)

Post any questions to the comments section, and I'll try to answer quickly!

    I just spoke to the shop again -- forecast for tomorrow looks fine, it may be a little overcast. As of now, the charter is still on! I'm sorry to miss it, and hope you guys have great dives!

    Just called the shop since we have had a lot of rain down here to check the conditions. The manager was out so they weren't sure at the moment. Their trip cancellation policy is to let you know by 5pm the evening before the dive so if we dont hear from them no news is good news!! :)

    Just a couple of changes -- Scuba Now had several calls for the Hyde/Markham for Saturday, so they moved our group over to the big boat. All other details remain the same. If anyone else wants to jump on the charter, just call the shop and sign yourself up.

    For the 10 who are RSVP'd "yes" as of today:
    Rick and I both paid deposits, and neither of us are able to go. As such, the 10 remaining TSG folks who have committed to the charter will get to split our deposits, in addition to splitting the free spot we earned for having 6+ on the boat. Here's a breakdown of the math: 10 divers at $90/each = $900. Minus the free spot $900 - $90 = $810. Minus two deposits $810 - $100 = $710. $710 / 10 divers = $71 each. Since everyone has already paid a $50 deposit, your balance is $21 each! If you need any gear other than tanks, please call the shop and let them know what you need.

    • Laura

      Whatever -- everybody can split my deposit, then.

    • Laura

      Surface temp is in the 80's, below the thermocline is low to mid 70's.

      Gabi, you can take my spot. I have to bail. Didn't realize I have an 18 mile run that morning.

    Found out this morning that I will not be medically cleared to dive on the 17th. I'm still going to ride along on the charter, just won't be able to dive. :-( Because there is room for 10 divers on the boat, I upped the RSVP limit to 11.

      Also my first dive off the NC coast! Super excited for this event.

  • Chris B.

    Hey Laura, will Scuba-Now fill my tanks or just provide me with tanks? Will they fill Nitrox or just air?

    July 29, 2013

    • Laura

      They are providing tanks, and will do Nitrox or air depending on Nitrox certification.

      July 29, 2013

    • Laura

      I was going to take my tanks, but decided to use theirs instead -- it's not going to cost anything extra, so I'll just save my tanks for another day. :-)

    See my comments for the 8/31 dives - these wrecks are a great experience!

    This ia a rare open weekend for me...count me in!

  • Frederick

    Those wrecks have lots of sharks! Good dives, good price. I haven't been out with Scuba-now yet, but haven't heard anything bad.

    July 28, 2013

  • David D.

    I haven't dove the coast yet. This sounds like a good way to get my feet wet.

    July 24, 2013

    • Rick

      Yup, totally. And this price is amazing FYI...

      July 24, 2013

    • Laura

      Yes, David -- this is a perfect introduction to NC Coastal diving! In fact, the Hyde was my first successful dive off the coast. :-)

      July 24, 2013

  • Simon-Peter S

    We would like 4 80's of 32% nitrox for the dives

    July 24, 2013

  • Chris B.

    Diving twice this month sounds like a plan. And I could do these wrecks over and over again. Natalie says she is in, too.

    July 24, 2013

  • Chris B.

    We literrally posted these charters within minutes of each other. I might be down for this even though I'm giong out 2 weekends after. Need to check with Natalie and see what her thoughts are. Def want to dive in Sept. at some point, either in Morehead or Wilmington.
