Stephen J. Bigelow: Diving North Carolina

North Carolina is known to divers as the "Graveyard of the Atlantic". Over the last several centuries, acts of war, the forces of nature, human error, and simple bad luck have brought thousands of ships to rest beneath the waves. But in the aftermath of these tragic losses, the remnants of these lost vessels have transformed into artificial reefs. Each wreck offers unique, stark, and beautiful vistas - twisting, meandering, and changing over time as seas and storms slowly reclaim them. These wrecks also host a diverse and vibrant ecosystem of beautiful and exciting marine life from nudibranchs to sharks. Wreck diving off the North Carolina coast is on many divers' bucket list.

Each year, the Club makes a pilgrimage to North Carolina to visit and explore these amazing wrecks. In January, Steve Bigelow will talk about the Club's most recent trek in June 2018, and look ahead to the next trip planned for June 2019. If you've been to North Carolina before - or are planning to join the Club trip this year - Steve can tell you everything you need to know about the sites and logistics to make the trip FUN.

The MetroWest Dive Club (MWDC) is dedicated to promoting fun, safe diving, and introducing and familiarizing members with new dive sites. We are committed to encouraging good relations with our coastal neighbors through courtesy and good diving etiquette, and getting involved with community activities.

The MWDC is not affiliated with any retailer, vendor, or manufacturers. We are a large group of sport divers with a wide range of scuba diving interests. Club members can help direct you to the many training classes locally available.

MetroWest Dive Club meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month at the Courtyard Marriott on Speen Street in Natick. Meetings are free and guests are welcome, divers and non-divers alike. MWDC meetings start at 7:30 pm but members often meet socially at the bar from 6:30 to 7:30pm.
