Discovery Diving located in Beaufort N.C. runs a professional operation
focusing on shipwrecks. Diving on the U-352(115ft), the Spar(110ft),
Aeolus(110ft) and Indra(65ft) visibility is normally 80-100 feet, however
this trip on average in the 10-50 feet. The sand tiger sharks are plentiful
along with bait fish, small tropical's & grouper, and of course
lionfish. Captain Leroy operates Captain's Lady (6-pak) and Captain Terry
operates Outrageous V (18), both give complete dive briefings and a history
of the wrecks. The boats leave at 7am for the 26-30 mile trip (1 hr 40 min)
to the wrecks. Jelly fish were present on every dive, which is unusual for
this time of year. All the staff are polite, courteous and professional and
engaging.
