Scuba Diving on the Crystal Coast

Crystal Coast Scuba Diving

The Crystal Coast has been named one of the top dive destinations in the world. What makes the Crystal Coast such a landmark in the diving community and described by dive enthusiast as “wreck diver’s dream” are the thousands of ship wrecks off our coast. Some wrecks are located just a few miles from our coast in just 30 foot depths. The North Carolina coast have been named “The Graveyard of the Atlantic” for being the final resting place for over 2000 vessels.

Diving The Indra

The Indra, a Landing Craft Repair Ship, is a very popular inshore dive location sitting in only 60 feet of water and only 10 miles off Emerald Isle. This wreck dive is perfect for beginners and is explored by both locals and visiting divers year-round due to the fact that this is a warm water wreck dive spot thanks to the Gulf Stream. The 328 foot Indra was sunk for an artificial reef in the summer of 1992.  Divers are able to see a variety of fish and other aquatic life, as well as an occasional Sand Tiger Shark.
