Heading to Myrtle Beach this weekend for a 1 week vacation and I’m looking to do some diving while there. Anyone recommend a dive shop that I should contact or specific dives I shouldn’t miss?? Thanks,

Nicole

I’m going to be there also! Theres really two dive shops that run charters. The one I use is Express Watersports in Murrells Inlet (South of south Myrtle) and theres Coastal Scuba thats way north. I’m going to do the Bill Perry with Express not sure which day yet. Talked to them over the weekend and they weren’t sure if they were going Monday or Thursday. Might also go on Wednesdays charter with them to the Goldfinch also. I have heard the Bill Perry is one of the better sites down there and I’ve been to the Goldfinch before and its not too bad itself. I think the Goldfinch if I remember correctly has around a hr to 90 min boat ride to the site so that’s another plus. Let me know if you decide to go on any of these charters, maybe we can buddy up?

Talked to Express today. Doesn’t sound like they are going out on Monday and possibly Thursday if they can’t get enough people. Looks like the only dive that I’ll be doing is Goldfinch if nothing changes.

Since I’m staying in Ocean Isle, NC (near the NC/SC border) I am going thru Coastal Scuba. I signed up for dives on Monday and Thursday. 2 dives per day at each site. The other shop is just too far from where I’m staying :-/ maybe next time! It’s a shame because I really really wanted to do the Bill Perry dive!

Ya I really wanted to dive the Bill Perry too. I am still holding out hope that they will get enough to make a boat. Ya I understand your in the same boat I am with the two shops. Coastal is over an hour away from where I am. I’d like to dive the Sherman and Barracuda Alley but it is just too far.
