Comments This was our 3rd trip to NC graveyard in last 5 years. Each time has been with Discovery Diving on the Captain's Lady. Captain Leroy takes great pride in providing customer satisfaction and a safe dive trip. Our group of six divers are all advanced divers with many hours underwater and given the latitude to plan and execute our own profiles. Captain Leroy listened to our requests for specific wrecks and offered his advice on where we could get the most bang for the buck. The dives were outstanding with sharks on 5 of 6 dives with the 6th being the "must see" U235. Discovery Diving delivered as promised and is a diver friendly operation. Accommodations were at the Discovery Diving "bunk house" a convenient and clean (and inexpensive) alternative to a hotel stay.
All in all, a great dive destination.
