Local and Boat Charters

We schedule Ocean Charters out of Gloucester throughout the Summer and early Fall.  The cost is $90 not including equipment. You have to have your own or rent with us at the shop. We also dive every weekend at the lakes and are happy to have you join us or pair you with one of our Dive Guides for other locations! There is usually little to no cost to lake dive with us unless we are diving off Dave's Pontoon Boat in Winnisquam ($50). If we set you up with a Dive Guide, we do recommend tipping your Guide!
Grey Seal Discovery Dives
Join us for one of the best dives you’ll ever have in our local waters. We have Atlantic Grey and Harbor seals that are friendly and inquisitive. This is a very easy and fun-filled dive for all experience levels. The depths are between 20 to 35 feet which also make for long bottom times. Come with us to enjoy a great seal encounter with our friendly seal population. Dive is subject to conditions. We reserve the right to change the dive location to give you the best dive experience possible. 

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 19 - 12:00

Chester Poling Deep/Wreck Dive
This is for anyone with a Deep or Wreck Certification. Please call the shop if you are not sure if you are qualified. 

Depth in feet: maximum 190, minimum 70,
Visibility in feet: average 15 - 20.

Poling's bow came to rest upside down in 190 feet of water 4 miles off Eastern Point. Originally the stern sank in 75 feet of water off the Dog Bar Breakwater. Mountainous seas from the Blizzard of '78 pushed the stern to its present location. Although deeper, it is still the most popular wreck dive off Cape Ann.

The wreck sits upright on a sand/silt bottom. Sediment has built up around the fantail, completely covering the prop. Some of the interior spaces are also silting up including the engine room and rear storage area behind the galley. Penetration can be made into the cavernous opening where the ship broke in two, as well as the vessel's cargo and ballast tanks. Many local dive shops use this wreck for shipwreck certification and most of the area dive charter boats will take properly certified divers to the vessel.

Marine life has turned the tanker's hull into an artificial reef. A centerline catwalk is festooned with anemones and other hydrozoans. Caution is advised due to the amount of monofilament and lobster lines that have snagged on the wreck.

Scalloping Dives

These are working dives and will require an Advanced Certification due to the 60-foot depth, generally low visibility, and being a working dive. It is also recommended that divers carry a safety sausage, a lift bag, and line along with their catch bag. Dive Flags and floats can be used for securing your catch bag to your flag float and line.
