TRIPS The better way to dive North Carolina

Daily Dive Trips - Morehead City, North Carolina

Your next adventure awaits....in North Carolina!

Scuba diving in North Carolina is truly an incredible experience. Fed by the warm clear waters of the Gulfstream, we have incredible visibility and comfortable temperatures making NC Diving always top rated by scuba enthusiasts and dive publications. North Carolina is also referred to as the "Graveyard of the Atlantic." More than 2,000 ships have sunk in these waters since people began keeping records in 1526, and Olympus Dive Center knows the best wrecks to dive off the coast of North Carolina. So if North Carolina wreck diving is what you're interested in, we're your premier dive charter with the knowledge and experience to show you a great time! 

We have several different types of dive trips to meet all levels of experience.

Full Day Dive Trip

Our full-day dive trip consists of two dives, at one or two locations, with bottom times dictated by no-decompression limits. Up to a two-hour surface interval is permitted between dives.

Our most popular trip, full-days are offered every day from May through October, on most weekends in March, April, and November, and sporadically throughout the winter. Please arrive at the dive shop at 6:00 am on the day of your trip for a 7:00 am or earlier departure.

Price: $130/diver
(Price of the trip includes weights. Tanks and equipment are available for rent.)

Please Read our Minimum Requirements for Full Day Dive Trip

 

Half Day Dive Trip

Our half-day dive trip consists of one dive for a maximum of 60 minutes. Two 20-minute dives with a short surface interval for training dives may be substituted. The dive site is an inshore location such as the Indra, JJF Tugs, Suloide, or the Titan, with maximum depths averaging 60-70 feet.

Half-day dive trips are available on Fridays, Saturdays, and most Sundays from Memorial Day through Labor Day, as well as various other days throughout the season. We ask that you arrive at the dive shop at 3:00 pm on the day of your trip for the scheduled 4:00 pm or earlier departure.

Price: $70/diver
(Price of the trip includes weights. Tanks and equipment are available for rent.)

Two Tank Shallow Dive Trip

Our Two Tank Shallow dive trip is similar to our full day dive trip, but we'll visit sites that are shallower in depth, making these charters ideal for novice divers. We'll do two dives with a maximum depth of 70 feet.

Please arrive by 7:00 am for a prompt 8:00 am or earlier departure. We'll be back to the dock between 2:00 and 3:00 pm.

Price: $125/diver
(Price of the trip includes weights.  Tanks and equipment are available for rent.)

Extended Day Dive Trip

Our extended-day dive trip is a two tank dive trip running beyond the full-day dive sites. Bottom times and surface intervals remain the same, but the boat departs earlier and returns later.

These trips are wonderful opportunities to visit less-frequented sites such as the Normannia, the Lobster Wreck, the Cassimir, and the Proteus. These trips are offered periodically during the summer. Check with the dive shop for specific dates. Please arrive no later than 5:30 am for a 6:30 am or earlier departure.

Technical Dive Trip

Do you have your Decompression certification? Or are you currently looking to book dives with your instructor to finalize your training? This is the dive for you! Olympus Dive Center is now supplying a charter geared specifically for DECOMPRESSION DIVERS ONLY.  We will be visiting wrecks at depths of 150-200 feet of water and we allow for extended decompression profiles during these trips.

Are you a rebreather diver? We are pleased to allow qualified rebreather divers on our Technical dive trips. The sharks of North Carolina are extra friendly when you don't have the noise of open circuit scuba to scare them away!  We also offer O2 fills and custom mixes for rebreather divers; however, we do not stock Sorb, so please bring enough of your own.

For everyone's safety, Olympus Dive Center reserves the right to amend the diver requirements for technical charters without advanced notice.

Price: $220/diver
(Price of the trip includes weights.  Tanks and equipment are available for rent.)

For everyone's safety, Olympus Dive Center reserves the right to amend the diver requirements for technical charters without advanced notice.

Price: $165/diver
(Price of the trip includes weights.  Tanks and equipment are available for rent.)
