This gallery is from the 2017 North Carolina Shark & Wreck Shootout with Mike Gerken and Olympus Dive Center. We had great weather all week. This was the 4th year for the contest and we explored several wrecks including the Atlas, Carib Sea, U-352, Aeolus, Schurz, and the Papoose. The water was murky and green on the Carib Sea but there was clear blue water on the U-352, Schurz, and Papoose. There were multiple sand tiger sharks on the Atlas and Aeolus. These sharks proved to be quite inquisitive and often came in for a close look. The large female sharks were easily 8-9 feet long. I had a great time diving with the group.
This gallery is currently under construction and I will be adding pictures regularly.
