The Realm of Wrecks and Big Animal Dive Sites (Click on image for more details)

The region from Miami to Palm Beach is one of the most heavily developed coastlines in the United States. Just offshore of the region's glittering resorts and palatial oceanfront mansions is a diverse and exciting underwater landscape that actually has more to offer in the way of wrecks and marine life than many of the famous dive destinations of the Caribbean. Because both the Continental Shelf and the currents of the Gulf Stream come closer to shore than anywhere else along the Eastern Seaboard, most dive sites are just a few miles from shore and easily reached from all-weather inlets.

U352 U Boat-NC

The U-352 was a German submarine that was used during the notorious U-boat attacks in WWII along the NC Coast. On May 9, 1942 it was sunk by the Coast Guard Cutter Icarus. This site was discovered in 1974 by Boat owner and Captain, George Purifoy, and several friends. The history behind this site has been televised and featured on the History® Channel and is one of North Carolina's best-known dive sites.
