I'm going on a group trip out of Morehead City, NC the weekend of their annual Seafood Festival -- Oct 5-7. North Carolina Seafood Festival

We will be diving wrecks like the Papoose, U-352, and the Schurz. We should see sand tiger sharks, lionfish, eels, and huge clouds of baitfish. There was even a whaleshark spotted a couple weeks ago!

The dive operator is Olympus Dive Center and we've got their 48' boat Midnight Express all to ourselves. Olympus Dive Center - Home

Water temp should be 80-85 deg with 75-150ft viz.

The trip includes 3 days of 2-tank diving, breakfast and lunch on the boat each day, a BBQ Saturday night, and lodging in either the dive lodge (bunkhouse) or hotel rooms. It does not include tank rentals or fills. 3 days of diving and staying in the bunkhouse is ~$600.

There are still some spots available on the trip. I'm trying to find more folks to go so I can have more fun! The more the merrier! Who wants to go? :)
