Hyde/Markham with Scuba Now

Let's try to get out one more time before the end of the season! The Hyde and Markham are two fairly shallow wrecks, so you can get lots of bottom time. Chances are very good that you'll see sand tigers, and who knows, maybe Mary Lee will hang around the NC coast and we'll catch a glimpse of a great white! :-)

Charter cost will be somewhere in the neighborhood of $90, including tanks. Call Scuba Now and pay a $50 non-refundable deposit to hold your spot:[masked]-5111. Be sure to tell them if you want air or Nitrox. Your spot is not guaranteed until you have paid a deposit.

Some of the best diving I have ever done in NC was in November! Water temps will probably be in the low 70's, so I would recommend at least a 5 mil wetsuit.

    Hey folks, I'm going on this trip and wanted to see if others wanted to carpool. I live in Carrboro and drive a Mazda Protege hatchback, so I can comfortably take up to 3 others, with gear. If you prefer to drive I can chip in for gas. I plan to leave the Triangle very early on the morning of the dive and get to the dive shop around 6am.

    See you soon!

    Are y'all diving with nitrox or air? I wasn't sure which to choose.

      I'm diving Nitrox, but I almost always dive Nitrox unless I'm in the quarry. :-)

    Just returned from a cruise with a sinus infection, thinking I got it after I dove with the Stingrays at Grand Cayman Island. So probably will not be making this trip.

    Would this trip require a Saturday night stay in Wilmington?

    Just spoke to Scuba Now -- right now, they have 7 spots filled so are expecting a full boat by charter date. Boat needs 9 to run.

    I just paid the deposit. This post from someone who went this weekend says they've got 60' viz right now!
