On Saturday six of our divers headed out to dive the USS Arthur Radford, and had a great time! The seas were mild, the visibility was decent, and the captain and crew were friendly and helpful, so it made for a fantastic day for some east coast wreck diving! Below is a message sent to us by one of the divers:
Just wanted to drop you guys a line and let you know what a great dive we had on Saturday. With seas under 3 feet, minimal surge, temperature in the 50’s, and visibility pushing 25,’ conditions were not the Atlantic I was expecting. I arrived at the dock bright and early and was helped aboard the spacious vessel by our great crew. We had six divers in technical gear and were not hurting for space. After the catching up with everybody on the way out, we arrived at the Radford ready to go. The vessel itself was massive and we didn’t even come close to covering the piece that we tied up to. I can’t wait to go back and explore further. Her spacious superstructure could be easily explored without getting too technical while the deeper holds promise to be exciting for long penetration dives. Ascent was easy with minimal current well and getting back on the boat was no problem either. I had a blast and can’t wait to make my way back out there; I feel like a fool for not knowing all this time that we had such rewarding dive sites so close to home. See you guys at the shop!
