DiveBuddy Trip 2008 (idea)

Regarding a group trip for DiveBuddy members...how would you feel about the following type of trip:

- up to 7 days / 6 nights during last week in October or first week in November.
- Wreck diving in North Carolina (if you’re in the U.S., plane tickets should be a lot cheaper than flying out of the country).
- Massive house that can fit up to 20 people on or very close to the beach.
- Hired chef to cook breakfast and dinner every day.
- up to 4 days of two tank boat dives provided by local dive shops.
- On site or community pool.
- Lots of restuarants and night life in surrounding area.
- Hired shuttle service to and from airport.
- Price range between $750 and $900 for all 7 days.

Nothing is for sure yet...just trying to gather ideas, thanks. Greg

[Choose #5] Not that excited about wreck diving, prefer warmer water, I’d want 5 or 6 days of 4-dives per day.
