Is there any wreck diving in New Hampshire?

    To start with, I'm a jersey wreck diver. However, it seems I will be spending some time in New Hampshire. I know NH has some shore diving and charters seem to run some trips but there don't seem to be many ship wrecks. I am going to be in the Portsmouth area. Any help finding places to dive would be much appreciated!!! Thanks!!!

    No Saxatilis - at least not the kind you are probably used to in NJ. There are many charters out of the Cape Ann/Boston area that may go off NH/MA coast. It isn't that far a drive from Portsmouth [1 hour max/40miles interstate.] There are wrecks off NH but there aren't any regularly scheduled charters that I know of out of Portsmouth/Rye area. Do a search on Cape Ann wreck diving for charter operators.

    This is in that area if there is anything left of it.

    If your up for a dive to vt lake Champlain has some good ones. Check out WaterFront diving in Burlington. Also some good diving out of Boston.

    There are a number to choose from out of Cape Ann or Boston. NH itself is more about shore diving and the lakes. Check out Northern Atlantic Dive Expeditions on their boat "The Gauntlet" or Cape Ann Charters on "The Daybreaker" (though the boat isn't back in the water until later this year) or Cape Ann Divers. The first 2 are well regarded Tech boats, the 3rd is a rec-only. Wrecks in the area range from surface through to 250+
