Who wants to dive the U-352? (North Carolina)

I am looking for a buddy(ies) to dive the wreck of the U-352 off North Carolina this season. I am also looking for advice on how to arrange such a dive (which dive charter/shop, etc.)

Long story short: I’m an avid wreck diver and WW2 history junkie who’s been trying to dive the U-352 for years. Every year, some unforeseen event torpedoes my plans (pun intended). This year, my NC-based friend found out he is moving within the next few weeks and thus won’t be able to do the dive this season.

I live in Philadelphia and will be driving down with all my gear. I really, really want to do this dive this season.

So...does anyone else want to dive the U-boat this year? And/or does anyone have any advice about how best to arrange it?

Thanks in advance!

Good luck, it took me 5 tries before I actually got on U-352, 3 dives were blown out and on one prior dive both my computers quit so I couldn’t dive her :(

I think the last time I shamed Olympus into putting us on U-352 saying I was starting to doubt that U-352 was really there :)

I’d be up for doing this with you. I’m in the Lehigh Valley, so it would be wise of us (and pretty convenient) to meet up at your place in Philly for the trip down there.
