4th of July in historic North Carolina...diving on history...OUR history! And watching fireworks light it all up...it just doesn't get any better then that!

But WAIT...IT JUST GOT BETTER!!! HOW? DAN and COCHRAN Computers are teaming up with SingleDivers.com to make SD a data collection group for studies being conducted to understand DCS and how to prevent it. Cochran computers have always been a part of DAN's efforts to help prevent DCS but Cochran's new computers go even farther to collect critical data such as your flight durations and times, as well as if you are diving in fresh or salt water, cold or warm water and more. Sampling once a second compared to once every 7 seconds like most computers, these computers are incredibly intelligent and we are very excited that we'll be able to use them to collect data for DAN on this trip as well as check out the newest and most exciting dive computers from the Cochran Dive Team!

Full Details below:

Hey gang! ONLY 18 TOTAL can do this trip!!! Diving on History in North Carolina is a once in a lifetime dive you have to do at LEAST once!!! But I'll warn you...when you find out that there is Caribbean water with HUGE animal encounters and the most incredible wrecks that you can dive on or in...you may just get 'hooked' like some of us near and dear to you...ahem...me!

What You'll See:

REAL WWI and WWII shipwrecks..sunk as early as 1918
The U-352...the second U-Boat sunk by the US in WWII and the ONLY U-Boat in warm, clear diveable waters!
Numerous U-Boat victims (not bodies) who fought valiantly for our freedoms!
Large animals such as Huge Southern Stingrays, Barracudas, Grouper, Amberjack, and yes SHARKS...SHARKS...SHARKS!!!

(Please note that we ask for 40+ dives and adv open water or equilivent in experience as these wrecks are 80-125ft in depth. The water temps are 80-85 degrees and vis is 70-150ft. No wreck certfication is required however the standard nitrox blend is 30%. Most wrecks do NOT have penetration opportunities and you must be specially trained to attempt a wreck penetration. Many of the wrecks have light passthru's where you can swim in and out to the light on the other side. Most of the wrecks are scattered due to frequent storms or if inshore cable layered to prevent hazards to shipping.)

*Due to a very short diving season May to Oct; variable weather; and very few dive operators; the diving alone in NC is $100+ per day making it the most expensive per day diving destination...but as you'll see...WELL worth the price to dive on "History" I assure you!

Note: PLEASE ask us if you are able and ready to make these phenomenal dives comfortably and safely! NC diving is not for everyone...but it could be for you!

Brian, the weather is usually 'good' in July! And Kamala owes us a couple dives on the U-Boat this time.

Oh, the dry suit is delayed due to the damn hurricane. Instead of having it early November, I may have to pick it up mid November. On the plus side I might be getting a great deal on a scooter!

Gee you read my mind. :lmao:

Drive-in for double 130's and Nitrox, please. This would be the same deal as the end of the season trip this year. Just tack on a day.

Kim,

Thanks much!

If I drove, I'd bring my steelie 95, but the mileage is close to making me want to fly (I have a 2.5 hour car BUTT!)...

No H is still OK, as I keep a single 1st-stage long-hosed Keys rig...

I've lined up a couple of HP120's with H valves for you...are you in????

by the way, these are the only 120's I could get, so once Norm takes them, everyone else is diving 100' or 80's!

Don't hold the 120's from anyone who can post earnest $$$, wouldn't be right!

We may be able to get a few more 120's closer to the trip time but certainly not with h valves. I know of only 2 that are available...as Kim said!

Good to see some interest for this trip already....NC rocks and the 4th of July trip is VERY cool. If we have enough interest we may be able to do some wrecks we don't usually do aka further offshore etc.
