I am thinking about heading to Morehead City and/or Wilmington NC for some diving the Week of Labor Day (Sometime between the dates of Sept 5th and the 12th).

Just curious if anyone is planning to be around there during that time. I am still digging under the couch cushions for some dive money so the decision has not yet been made but thought I would poll out to the Dive Forum and see what is going on.

Maybe, I’m going to stop there for a few dives on the way back from Florida but that will probably be the following weekend around the 18th.

Hello ! I will be in Merrils Inlet few miles south diving some off shore wrecks. Also looking for someone to buddy up with if you want to drive south and hook up, let me know. Thanks: Ted J>

I recommend Discovery out of Moorehead City. If you go out of Wilmington try Aquatic Adventures. I used to live in NC and those two are who I would go out with the most. Spar is a great dive and one highlighted on Shark Week on the Discovery Channel. Long trip out but great dive with usually great vis. Papoose is closer in and also has Sandtigers, and a shallower dive at about 60-70 feet.

I am going to Morehead sept 10th diving on the 11 and 12th. I am diving with olympus dive center. They have a bunk house and it only cost 25 per night. With the 2 charters and the bunk house for 3 days it only came to 325. You should check out there website olympusdivecenter.

Well I was going to try to go the week before you guys will be there (5th/6th time frame) but I had to drop the gear off for some maintainance and the tanks off for VIP. That said, it may push me back, so maybe I will see ya.

I will let you know if so and what comes of my plans.

Thanks for all the info guys...
