    It is a expensive outing to dive down in NC. Particularly on a six pack. Add to that it’s ~$200/night for a hotel (at least it was when I went down there).

    If you’re looking at it strictly from a budget standpoint, then yes...NC is not the place where I would choose to take a family dive vacation.

    Edit: If you stayed in Pompano Beach or Lauderdale by the Sea...accommodations are cheaper. You also have access to shore diving at LBTS to save a few bucks.

    Yeah this was something to do on an outer banks beach vacation, not a dive vacation, those are to shore diving Mecca's, Bonaire, Curacao, St Croix etc, flights, rental house and diving for a ten day trip all for the cost of 5x5 2-tanks in NC. It's pretty easy math. As a quick weekend solo or buddy pair trip it makes sense. For a diving family not so much.

    I would like to second the recommendation of the Atlantis Atlantis Charters Home - You will be hard pressed to find a better boat with a more qualified crew.

    This may be late advise, but check out the 6 pack Instigator. Instigatorfad.com. The captain is very knowledgeable and an experienced spear hunter. Her prices are always reasonable.

    Less sugar and abs exercise everyday should do the trick...

    If the total's a bit high, I would inform them ahead of time that you aren't tipping and just skip the tip. You're effectively contracting them, and they might be counting on no tips for the dollar-cost they provide.
