The Grand Strand is loaded with some of the best dive sites on the East Coast!! We have a high concentration of beautiful natural shipwreck sites that range in age from the mid 1800's to the 1960's, with many from the Civil War and WWII era. We also have several reefs that contain intact ships! While you're here, be sure to check out Barracuda Alley,- a project spear-headed by Coastal Scuba and the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources!
Our dive sites are usually teaming with marine life, including angel fish, grouper, amberjack, butterfly fish, great Atlantic barracuda, sea turtles, and even the occasional lobster! In recent years even lionfish have been discovered living on our wrecks! On many of the sites you may find "sunken treasures" of brass artifacts that went down with the ship. These may include Civil War belt buckles, trigger guards, gun butt plates, bottles, china, small personal items, and port holes,- just to name a few.
Coastal Scuba brings together years of experience from its captains, instructors and dive masters. Our goal is to make your diving experience the best you have had in the Carolinas, with something to offer every diver from the newly certified, to the seasoned veteran. Thank you for making us your first choice in South Carolina scuba diving charters and lessons!
We are proud to present the Safari IV! This 45 foot customized dive boat is sleek enough to get you to dive sites quickly, sturdy enough to offer you stability against the occasionally unpredictable Atlantic, and yet roomy and spacious on board, complete with a full size head (bathroom), 2 ice coolers for your snacks, and a professional crew. She carries all Coast Guard required equipment including first aid kit and oxygen.
We are also proud to announce the addition of the Little River Fishing Fleet to our company!: The Pride of the Carolinas and the Sundancer are outfitted for both fishing and scuba diving, running trips year round based on customer demand.
Remember, demand for diving is high in the summer, so please book early. All weekends are especially busy. But best of all,... if mother nature prohibits us from diving there are numerous topside activities for you to enjoy. These include over 100 fantastic golf courses, thousands of restaurants and bars, theaters, and much, much more. We pride ourselves in our professional, friendly service. Thank you for choosing us,- we look forward to diving with you soon.
