Shipwrecks: US East Coast-2022

Hatteras, NC (June 2022)

diving aboard Lion's Paw

Our annual June trip to Cape Hatteras was compromised by tropical storm Alex, which stormed across Florida before heading east and out to sea, but not without sending swell and strong winds to the Outer Banks for much of the week we were there. We were only able to get out diving for one day out of a planned seven, leading us to pursue other activities. While diving the British Splendour, we were visited by a Great White Shark! Dave Etchison got a couple of outstanding photos of it, but I never saw it.....but I'm sure it saw me!!
