Diver Down is a cut to the chase outfit in Atlantic Beach, N.C. The crew
are highly skilled and are there to help in anyway to make your dive trip a
safe and enjoyable experiance. I was really impressed. They put on and took
off everyones fins for them. Not just when you asked, but everyone on the
boat. They did a roll call after each dive, and knew what your dive time
was because they log your entry time and exit times as well. They knew the
wreck sites well, and gave detailed breifings for each location. This is
world class wreck diving. U-352 was just excellant. Each wreck offered an
assortment of large amber jacks, sand tigers, and grouper. Large schools of
bait fish, and sea urchins abound. They weather could not have been better
for us. Seas never over 2'. The last day it was slick as glass, although
this was the exception to the norm. Seas can, and do, get rather ruff in
this area, thus the name "graveyard of the Atlantic".

I highly recommend diving this area, and with Diver Down. Good luck on
catching the weather just right, and finding a good reasurant.
