“Under Pressure”

Hi everyonehope you all are looking forward to the upcoming dive season as I am, below is the schedule for 2018. Contacts for charters are also listed so you can contact them should you want to go on their charters if they have space. All other trips contact Capt. JT to book your spot. At this time, we only accept cash or check, please pay Capt. JT or Nancy. The mates work for tips, please pay them directly for a job well done, any money given to mates are considered tips. 15-20% of the boat fee is standard. All open boat trips are Captains choice and are recreational trips unless otherwise stated. Updates are provided during the year and season on my FB page “JT Barker" https://www.facebook.com/jt.barker.1

Recreational dives
 The cost this year for a recreational dive charter whole boat will be $155 per person x 6= $930 (this will cover fuel cost up to $3.75 gal at dock diesel, should fuel go back up pass $3.75 gal a fuel surcharge will be added) for wrecks 140ft or less and no further offshore than 25 miles from the Hatteras Inlet Sea Buoy (for example: Proteus, Tarpon, British Splendor, Australia, Kassandra, Monahan, Dixie Arrow, FW Abrams, Keshena etc.) Requires an Advance card or higher (Active Log Book Showing dives in last 6 months to similar depths of scheduled dives is accepted) Open boat cost is $160 per person 

Technical 
For wrecks that exceed 140ft in depth or are more than 25 miles from the HI Sea Buoy they are priced per charter request.The following are examples:

  • Lancing Depth 169ft $170 per person
  • U701 Depth 110ft $175 per person
  • Manuela Depth160ft $175 per person
  • EM Clark depth 240ft, Lightship Depth 200ft $200 per person
  • Malchase Depth 200ft, Far East Tanker Depth 160ft $200 per person

    For charters all pricing will be priced x 6 to represent a full boat!

You must have the proper C-card for the depth/boat approval and mix for the dive. For technical diving you will be required to send me a copy of your highest c-card that allows you to do the depth and mix you have planned by email at least 2 or more days before the planned charter.  This will allow me time to research what that card allows if not clearly stated on the card and now that the USCG is asking for a copy of the divers c-card if there is an accident I will already have it to send with the accident report should something happen. 
This year the Under Pressure hopes to have a season long Monitor permit again for those interested in chartering the boat without the headache of getting the permit. 
Contact Capt. JT for charter info captjt@mindspring.com

The Under Pressure
NO DIVE GEAR OF ANY KIND IN THE CABIN tool boxes can be placed inside during the day.  There will be no lodging on the boat. 

Lodging 
We can offer rooms at the beach house as part of your Hatteras diving adventure, 2 night 
Minimum, contact Capt. JT for more info. 

High current dives option: I will offer the option of drifting/bombing the wrecks with a dive flag and reel (provided by the boat if needed). This option will allow us to dive the wrecks over on the shoals more often provided divers have the skills, experience, and understanding of the process. This will be done in two groups of three and will require each group to dive similar dive plans (Hatteras is no place to be chasing multiple flags and divers with every man for himself dive plans). Groups must first compete a day/wreck dive that is less challenging (no current max depth 160ft) day to ensure the group can dive as a team and descend quickly without problems. Or if you can come up with a better idea/way submit it to me at least a week before your trip and I will consider it and let you know before your charter date. Divers will be required to have a SMB and reel (suited for the depth) as a backup.
