We don't have much to offer as far as the beautiful colored reefs, but we have a heck of a ton of wrecks/sunken ships, military equipment, subway cars, etc.

Here is the link to the locations in all of SC. Enjoy!

Any of the wrecks worth diving? Nothing seemed to be too exciting from that link, but then again, that page was for fishermen.

Fisherman often find wrecks, of course that means sometimes there's lots of dangerous stuff on them too.

Please excuse the ignorance, as I am an inland diver but what are the currents like? I am looking to broaden my experience level and would like to do some wrecks in the 100' range with some current so that I can start to become comfortable diving in current from a boat.

Thank you in advance for any replies.

Great site-I have been looking at another site that is wrecks in North Carolina...

North Carolina Shipwrecks (http://www.nc-wreckdiving.com/shipwrecks.html)

There seem to be a lot of ships off that part of the coast-some of the listings include current and pictures.

Consider yourself LUCKY my friend. Warm water reefs and little colorful fishes are a dime a dozen....pick up 'most' any scuba magazine. Now the real thrill is diving structures...and you will see all the wildlife anyways at the same time!

There are tons of wrecks off the NC coast. I have been diving on 16 of those listed on that site. The wrecks of the Atlantic are amazing. Lots of WWII wrecks. They are by far the most enjoyable dives of my life... and that is including several great dives on the Oriskany.
