Discovery Diving Company, Inc.

Discovery-Diving-Logo-200North Carolina once again ranked # 1 in North America for Top Dive Destination, Top Marine Life, Top Big Animal Encounters and Top Wreck Diving.  North Carolina diving also ranked 3rd in North America for Top Value and Top Advanced Diving as reported in the Readers Choice Surveys conducted and published by Scuba Diving Magazine.

One of the largest Retail Dive Centers on the eastern seaboard, located on the waters of Historic Beaufort, North Carolina, is Discovery Diving Company, Inc.  President Debby Boyce invites you to experience the mystery and beauty of many sunken vessels located off the coast.

Know as the Graveyard of the Atlantic, there are numerous WW II ships that fell victim to enemy vessels as well as the German Sub, U-352, sunk by U.S. Forces.  In total, there are over 28 wrecks that you can dive, including a WW I cruiser, Ocean liners, fish trawlers and many more wrecks for you to rediscover.  There are also several artificial reefs, to include large ships and aircraft creating new fish habitats and fresh diving experiences.

SHKTEETH-200During the Summer, due to the proximity of the Gulf Stream, Beaufort has warm, clear waters with temperatures in the low 80’s and visibility often over 100 feet.  They have large schools of pelagic fish, tropical fish, corals and a wreck (The Papoose) that is one of the premier shark dives in North America!

Discovery Diving Company, Inc. is a full service dive shop offering sales, instruction, rental, repairs and wonderful days on the water with their own 3 exclusive charter boats and their competent and caring crews.  They are within walking distance of restaurants, quaint shops and the North Carolina Maritime Museum in the Historical District of Beaufort. The shop is also within paddling distance of the Rachel Carson Estuaries Sanctuary and the most southern outer bank of the Cape Lookout National Seashore, great for after-diving outings.

Take advantage of the shop’s weekday special available for groups of six or more for only $455.00 (plus tax) per diver.  The cost includes 4 days of diving and 5 nights of lodging in one of our Divers Lodges.
