I wanted to update my YMCA Open Water Diving Certification from 1972 and contacted Debbie at Discovery Diving Company (DDC) to see what needed to be done. After a few phone calls, I visited the wonderful folks at DDC, spent about two hours in the pool demonstrating necessary diving skills, viewed several videos and took the final written exam with...

We've been going to this shop many times a year for some nice NC coast diving. The captains and crew know their stuff and work hard to ensure a safe and pleasant trip for everyone. Would recommend to anyone.

Just back from two days of diving with Discovery and the captain and crew of the Sea Quest II. First day we planned to dive the U-352, but a storm changed that plan. The captain found us another site, the Hutton and some tugs that were more recently sunk. Lots of interesting marine life, particularly watching barracudas feed on a... More

I had an amazing time diving with Discovery Diving for the first time this past weekend. We did 2 dives at the Aeolus and the captain and mates were both friendly and helpful. I will definitely be back!

this was my second trip with discover diving .Both trips were a bit of a disappointment . On both occasions we did two dives on the same site. While the dive sites are chosen due to weather conditions . I do think more interesting sites could have been found given the conditions of the day

Our group had booked the dives for two days and the U-352 was good and the Spar. Next morning the storm came in and I had not seen "Horizontal Rain" and lightning and thunder. We didn't want to risk going out and decided not to dive. We checked with the dive shop and they were going out. I only rate... More

I have 5 dive experiences now with this amazing team of dive guides who look after you both on the boat and ensure your dive experience is one to remember. I get particularly sick on a boat but just battle on, the wrecks are worth every minute of the journey. I travel from the UK and stay at the Harbour... More

I recently completed my PADI Dive Instructor training with Discovery Diving and was more than pleased with their service, fun-loving attitudes, and willingness to go above and beyond for their students. If you're looking for a shop where you get to know the people you're diving with and the staff are fun and approachable, then Discovery Diving is for you!... More
