Dove the Troy and Lemuel Burrows yesterday off the dive charter boat Atlantus in Atlantic City. Couldn't ask for better sea conditions, about 2ft, winds around 5 knots. The Troy was a tug boat that was actually sunk twice. After sinking the first time she was raised to be repaired but once raised they saw the poor condition she was in and sunk her again. Visiblity about 15', Kevin K and I circled the boat a few times, The bridge is detached and laying in the sand about 1...

Sharks in NC

Posted by Steph on June 22, 2010 at 5:43 PM Comments comments (1)

Had a blast in NC! Really enjoyed diving on the Boat "UNDER PRESSURE" Out of Hatteras. He will run some light tech trips at a very reasonable cost. We should try to set one up. 6 divers at a time. I am trying to post a video. Hope it works.

Warm regards,

Was out on the Venturo tug yesterday with Jason and the NJUE crew off Belmar. Winds 5-10k, flat seas, visibiltiy 20-25 ft!!!!! What an awesome day. No bugs, some fish were speared, and plus one abandoned lobster pot. Also checked out the armored personell carriers and upside down Sherman tank. Thanks Capt. Doug and crew on the Alliance.

3/20/2010 dive off of the "Alliance" to the Coney Island

Posted by Dan Wright on March 21, 2010 at 8:35 AM Comments comments (0)

At 7am on 3/20/2010, Doug Card steered his and Barb's boat, the "Alliance" out of Shark River Inlet towards the wreck of the "Coney Island", some 20 miles offshore. Seas were nearly flat, sun was out, and no winds. The air temps were warm, in the 60's. Today was the last day of winter/first day of spring combined. We would actually begin the dives in the winter and end in the spring as it was to change seasons sometime after 1pm. We are all excited to put the cold winter behind us. Onboard we...

Posted by njue on February 26, 2010 at 11:57 AM Comments comments (0)

What could have been our last dive on the Poseidon Vessel was excellent. We were scheduled to depart at 0700hrs. Up at 0500hrs loaded the truck with Kevin Krowicki and out to start our journey. Once on I-295 we meet up with Dave Barnes who was following us in his truck. We arrived at the boat docks at around 0645 hrs, just a little later than we wanted to. Stephan, Ken, Dan Wright and Sherwood were already there shoveling snow off the boat. I have to say that after the big snow storms we had ...
