Deep Diver

Who Knows What Lurks in the deep? ... The Deep Diver!

The lure of the deep. There’s something exciting and mysterious about exploring deeper dive sites while scuba diving. Sometimes it’s a wreck that attracts you below 60 feet, and on wall dives it may be a giant fan or sponge. Here in Wilmington, NC we have the unique opportunity to dive in search of giant Megalodon Teeth at depths greater than 100 feet!  Whatever it is, to scuba dive with confidence at depths down to 130 feet, you should take the PADI Deep Diver Specialty course.
