We have a trip for (2) of the best beginner / intermediate dives off NC coast. We will go 46 miles out to the Gulfstream and dive the Frying Pan Tower and Capt Greg Mickey wreck. These dives are only 55-80 foot depth. Since we are "offshore", the viz is very good and the temps have been in the 80's. This is a fantastic dive with Sand Tiger Sharks, schools of Crevalle, King Mackerel, Dolphin, Angelfish, along with lots of tropical fish at depth. Outstanding visibility and low current is to be expected. A SMB or safety “sausage” is required on this dive due to distance and possible current. This dive is one of the most premier dives in the Carolinas.The boat can take 18 divers
