Want to Scuba? Coastal Scuba and Express Watersports Have the Hookup in Myrtle Beach
Coastal Scuba in Myrtle Beach, offers visitors and locals alike the unforgettable experience of what they call “wreck diving.” There are numerous shipwrecks, many from the Civil War and World War II eras and some of which are intact. They serve as breathtaking, naturalized habitats for myriad fish and other marine life including angel fish, barracuda, grouper, sea turtles and the occasional lobster. On these wreck sites, divers regularly find fascinating artifacts such as Civil War-era belt buckles, trigger guards, bottles, china and port holes.
Scuba divers’ journeys begin on the 45-foot Safari IV, with a trained, experienced crew ready to guide, assist and educate. The Safari IV also carries enough cooler storage space to preserve enough food for the entire party during the day’s excursion, as well as a bathroom and all necessary Coast Guard-required first aid and rescue supplies.
To take advantage of the spectacular sunshine that Myrtle Beach enjoys, Coastal Scuba schedules excursion to leave in the mornings, so guests are encouraged to plan well ahead and be prompt so as to have all the desired time for scuba diving adventure.

Since opening for business in 1997, Express Watersports boasts a PADI 5-Star rating as well as the largest scuba-related retail inventory list on the beach. They offer a wide range of excursion types to fit all budgets and levels of scuba diving ability, from $75, quarter-day trips to see the Pawleys Reef at a depth of 25 to 40 feet to a full-day, $175 dive down to 125 to 130 feet to see the famous “RIB Wreck” that lies close to the Gulfstream, enabling advanced divers to see some of the area’s less common sea life.
