Welcome to Graveyard Hunters

Where the cold waters of the Labrador current meet the clear warm gulf Stream waters, lies a place called the "Graveyard of the Atlantic".  For as long as men have sailed the seas, they have found their way to the Barrier Islands of North Carolina.  But their arrival has not always been a pleasant one.  For many of these vessels, the hazardous shifting shoals, German U-boats, and just plain old sailor error have determined their fate.  Weather in the Graveyard is unpredictable and can change in the span of a few minutes.  The shifting sand shoals continuously move about, providing a challenge for even the seasoned mariner.  The tragic irony is that many of these ships who dared to take their chances close to the shores of North Carolina now sit on the bottom of the Atlantic, a testament to Man VS Nature. 

North Carolina is considered the #1 wreck diving site in the world by many, and our large variety of underwater flora and fauna bathed in warm blue Gulf Stream waters rivals popular Caribbean diving resorts.  Visibility on many of these wrecks is usually in the 70 foot range, but days of 100+ feet of visibility is not uncommon. 

From the Northern tip of the Albemarle Sound to the Southern tip of Cape Fear, the North Carolina coastline boasts over 2,000 shipwrecks.  Some of these are so close you can dive them by just walking out into the water from the shore, while most require you to own a boat or take a charter out.  Our wrecks vary from 14th century pirate ships, to World War I and World War II casualties, to modern ships sank as artificial reefs.

There amongst the Graveyard on most weekends and sometimes during the week, you'll find the Graveyard Hunters.  We stalk the Graveyard, bringing home Flounder, Sheepshead, Grouper, Lion fish, and whatever other treasure the Graveyard has to offer.

The Graveyard Gang

The Graveyard Hunters is a group of locals who like to get together and dive and spearfish.  Although we call ourselves a "dive club", we don't have bylaws or formal meetings.  We don't take our selves too seriously, and this also goes for us as individuals.  The result is a group of fun-loving divers that like to hang out hang out and get along remarkably well without the fractionalizing and politics that is often found in other clubs.  We are a very like minded group of divers, and because of this our membership is rather small and grows slowly.  This is also the reason we don't need a formal political organization to run the group, we are non-organized, but not un-organized.

Membership in the Graveyard Hunters is quite simple.  All that is necessary is a love of diving and spearfishing and respect for fellow divers.  If that sounds like you, then come stalk with us.

The Graveyard Store

Whether you're looking for cool stuff, or just need SCUBA visual inspection or hydro service, The Graveyard Gang has you covered.  If you have to have a visual inspection decal on your cylinder anyway, why not have a cool one?   Unlike the dive shops, our visual cylinder inspection turn around time is usually the same day, and in most cases we can do it while you wait.  Our visual cylinder inspections are done by a PSI Certified inspector, so you know you're getting the gold standard when it comes to cylinder safety.  We also offer FREE vessel safety inspections by a United States Power Squadron certified vessel inspector.  If your vessel meets all the requirements of the Coast Guard safety inspection, you will be awarded a decal to affix to the port side of your vessel to notify Marine Patrol and Coasst Guard that you have already been inspected for the calendar year.  This may save you a citation and fine from the Coast Guard!
