More than 2,000 shipwrecks sunk off the Coast of North Carolina in what’s called the Graveyard of the Atlantic. With all that history floating around, it was only natural to build a museum to honor and preserve the maritime culture of the Outer Banks. A state-of-the-art structure, the year round museum houses and displays artifacts, and presents a variety of exhibits and interprets the rich maritime culture that includes war, piracy, ghost ships and more. Artifacts include thoseex from the USS Monitor, which sank 16 miles off the Hatteras coast. The lobby features the stunning and original, 1854, First Order Lens from the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. Current hibits include those on piracy and the Civil War on Hatteras Island.
The southern Outer Banks has countless treasures that are buried in the outlying deep blue waters, and scuba divers can experience what the Graveyard of the Atlantic is all about with a trip that is hosted by Dive Hatteras. Offering custom diving charters for small parties on a large and spacious boat, Dive Hatteras is a favorite resource for a shipwreck diving adventure off the coast of Hatteras Island.
