    I am not too sure where you get the 20 minute dive time from unless you are diving the Meg ledge in the ocean. Most of us dive the Cooper River. I had 5 hours underwater in one day.

    IMG_0377.JPG I've done a 3 tank charter there...it's worth it. I've never NOT found big teeth on the ledges.

    Hi Tom,

    My concern is more of
    '3 20 min dives on the ledge in NC'
    or
    '4 charters, 3 tanks @ 30 ft (2 hours each dive) in Venice FL'


    for the same price :D

    It's all relative. I have done both, and for me, I tend to find a higher quantity of quality large teeth in NC.
