This video was shot while diving the wreck of the Atlas with Olympus Dive Center and Lancaster Scuba Center on 6/30/14. The visibility was limited but the murky water added to the experience as there were more than a dozen sand tiger sharks that were inquisitive and approachable. The Atlas lies at 125 feet. It was torpedoed by the U-552 and sank on April 9, 1942. It is an easy boat ride from Moorehead City, NC.
