Capt. Dan Berg and the Wreck Valley crew invite you to join them as they explore, film and search for artifacts on the shipwrecks off Long Island NY's South Shore. This area, which is often called Wreck Valley, offers some of the finest wreck diving in the world. Divers can explore rum-runners, wooden schooners, paddle wheel steamships and much more. Capt. Dan
was the host of the Dive Wreck Valley TV series and the author of over ten shipwreck and diving related books. Now for the first time you can
Dan aboard his new 40 foot, 6 pack charter boat
R/V Wreck Valley. Visit Wrecks like the Black Warrior,
Tarantula, RC Mohawk, Lizzie D, and more. Depths range from 30' to
165'. Special shipwreck excavation, dredging and side scan sonar expeditions are also available. For group rates and additional information and our (6 pack) charter schedule contact Aqua Explorers @ (516) 868-2658 or E-Mail Wreckvalle@aol.com Ask about Capt. Dan's FREE Wkly E-Mail Dive Conditions Report!
The R/V Wreck Valley is a custom built 40' Young Brothers. She has over 16' of
deck space, a 9' cabin , enclosed head, heat, and 3 bunks. The Wreck Valley is
powered by a single 6-71 TI Detroit Diesel and cruises at 20 knots! Her speed
and excellent sea keeping abilities make her one of the most comfortable 6-pack
vessels in the area. Running out of Jones Inlet on Long Island, NY's south shore
we can choose hundreds of shipwreck destinations.

Last Saturday had
all of the elements.! Everything we had planned and hoped for .
Good weather, good visibility, good wreck, good divers, and good
crew! Dan, you are so right. There are very few days where all of
the elements line up in the Northeast and we had them. Thanks again
to you and the crew for such a great day .
