Graveyard Hunters Spearfishing Morehead City North Carolina

Enjoy the Summer with Us!

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.
