Good operation, good boat.
Visit Date: November 2005
Aquatic Safaris is a standard stateside shop & dive operation. You are responsible for handling your own gear & tanks (as is the norm for NC shops). Rentals are available. If you come expecting to be pampered like at a Caribbean shop, you will be disappointed... it's just not how mid Atlantic shops operate.
The store front is clean & about most of the sales staff is knowledgeable about what they sell (seasonal turnover). Many of the sales reps are college age kids, who are Advanced OW so if you're asking more advanced level questions, you'll need to save them for the instructors.
The boats are well kept & well managed by the captains & dive masters. They know their dive sites and will get you in and out of the water safely. Although I haven't personally dove a tech rig with them, it's my understanding that they will accommodate Technical divers (with their own gear). The offshore wrecks AS frequents are teeming with life. Great boat to see Sand Tigers with.
