The Hyde sits intact and upright on the bottom with a lot to see. Because it is upright it makes it very easy to navigate, just like you were walking her decks. The deck is around 65-70 ft which makes this a good dive for a novice diver wanting a little more experience. During the summer months this wreck gets over run with sand tiger sharks which make for incredible dives. Nurse sharks, sandbar sharks, turtles, and barracuda are not uncommon either.
The Markham is a very popular dive. It is a few hundred yards away from the Hyde which makes for a good combination of dives. Like the Hyde, during the summer months sand tiger sharks make this wreck their home. One of the highlights of this wreck is the massive prop on it`s stern.
We will meet on Friday at 5:00 PM in Home Depot parking lot off of Albemarle Rd and carpool to Wilmington and and check into a hotel. We will stay at a local hotel and go to the dive shop early Saturday morning to sign-in, get gear and air. Note that you must have your Open Water Certification Card with you - Aquatic Safaris will collect them prior to allowing you to dive.
