Dive Charters

Two charter boats currently operate exclusively through Discovery Diving Company, one 6-passenger vessel, and one 16-passenger crewboat. We run charters with a minimum of four people and can accommodate almost any size group. If you are by yourself, or have less than four people, we generally have little trouble placing you on scheduled charters. While most of our charters feature North Carolina's world renowned shipwrecks, we also offer charters geared especially for spearfishing where we visit our vibrant hard bottom reef systems.

For reservations or additional information, call 252-728-2265

We require payment at the time of reservation and have a 30-day cancellation policy  that should be reviewed prior to reserving a charter. Please note that food and beverages are not provided, so you'll want to bring your own. Our boats all have ample cooler space and water. Snacks, sodas, and beer can be purchased at Discovery.  Tanks and rental gear  are not included in the price, though all are available at the dive shop. Please arrive 45 minutes prior to charter departure for gear loading and paperwork.
