ORIENTAL - The Boiler Wreck - an iron-hulled transport ship. Built in 1861. Lasted only 9 months before she grounded in fog in 1862. She lies off Pea Island in @20 ft of water.

METROPOLIS - The Horsehead Wreck - a passenger-freighter 124' long wooden ship. She ran aground during a storm in Corolla. Located south of Corolla in @15ft of water.

CURLEW - The Sound Wreck - a smaller version of the Huron. She lies off Roanoke Island in the sound. Not much is left but there is a sizeable debris field and lots of cannon balls. Located just off Mann's Harbor marina in @10 feet of water right in the middle of the channel. A dive flag is a must for safety.

LST at Rodanthe (1948): Drive to the Rodanthe Fishing Pier, 15 miles south of Oregon Inlet campground, or 25 miles north of Buxton. Look north from Ramp 10 near the pier for the steel wreck in the water


Civil War Iron Steamer: Near the old Iron Steamer fishing pier, the wreck lays several yards off the beach in about 15' of watter.

Radio Island Jetty: Located on an island between Morehead City and Beaufort, parking is available at a county water access park.  Expect 3 to 6 ft visibility. Only dive-able at high-slack tide. Tropical fish are seen during the late summer months into October. Beware of boat traffic if you venture off the jetty.

Railroad Bridge: Located along Hwy. 70 on Radio Island. Depth is 15 to feet. Best dove during low tide.


Masonboro Inlet Jetty - Wrightsville Beach: Park in the metered spaces at the southern end of the island and hike out to the inlet. The tip of the jetty is the best dive, usually inhabited by larger fish, Crevalis Jack and very large stingrays. A challenging dive but visibility here is very good for a Southern NC shore dive if the weather is good.
