Comments 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.
