Scuba Diving in the Graveyard of the Atlantic in North Carolina
With more than 600 shipwrecks dating back to the 1500s, it's crystal clear how the coast of North Carolina got the nickname "Graveyard of the Atlantic". And with tropical conditions, thanks to the Gulf Stream, good visibility, and waters teeming with marine life, exploring North Carolina by sea is a natural for scuba diving enthusiasts.
The Morehead City area serves as the heart and logistical soul of North Carolina diving. This area provides ideal access to many of the best dive sites. And with plenty of dive shops offering great dive packages and dive courses, tons non-diver activities in the area, lodging and dining, the Crystal Coast of Morehead City, Beaufort and Emerald Isle offers plenty to do above and below sea level.
