On this Dive Travel Adventure, join us as we stay in the USA and travel to Morehead City, North Carolina to dive some of the ship wrecks that are part of “the graveyard of the Atlantic”.
We interview Captain George Purifoy and friend, Claud Hull, about the U352 German Sub which they discovered (sunk May 9, 1942) as we give you a video tour of the sub 100 feet below the ocean surface.
We also interview Divemaster Bud Daniels and Claud Hull about “The Papoose”, a ship they found. Other ship wrecks we tour include: The Caribsea, Indra, Spar, U.S.S. Schurz and Aeolus.
Most of these shipwrecks are surrounded and covered with marine life, including dozens of Sand Tiger sharks up to 9 feet in length.
We take you on a topside tour of the Morehead area and beaches, visit the new North Carolina Aquarium which has a replica of the U352 sub surrounded by sharks, and tour the city of Wilmington.
In Wilmington, we search for Megalodon, pre-historic, shark teeth. Megalodon sharks were the second largest predator on the planet, even larger than T Rex, estimated to be 40-60 feet in length and weighing 52 tons. They had as many as 250 giant 7 inch teeth, and were capable of swallowing a rhinoceros whole. The teeth are found on a fossil ridge 40 miles out into the ocean under 100 feet of water. We found two 4 inch teeth and many smaller ones. Those 7 inches and larger are worth upwards of $20,000, and have become a treasure hunters bonanza. Only 16 have been found (so far) in the world in good condition.
Sit back and join us for this exciting adventure off North Carolina!
