Fifth Annual Shark Shootout in North Carolina
By Joseph Tepper, March 18, 2018 @ 06:10 AM (EST)

The Fifth Annual Shark Shootout is set to take place in North Carolina this summer—and there are still spots open!

The event is part photo workshop, part competition, and just a good ol’ time diving one of North America’s healthiest marine ecosystems. The multi-day shootout is run by pro shooter Mike Gerken in conjunction with the fine folks at Olympus Dive Center. There are a selection of prizes to be won for top-notch images and videos. 

You will have the chance to dive some of the most sought-after wrecks in the world, including the famed U-352 u-boat. Of course, there are also the toothy sand tiger sharks, which are amongst the most photogenic species around. If you’re lucky, there might even be massive baitballs swarming around the wrecks and sharks

Grab your spot now for the Shark Shootout, which takes place May 31 through June 3. You can find more information on the event page
