USS Arthur Radford
Zone 5 / Depth: 110-140 ft
This wreck, the 563-foot USS Arthur Radford, is an exciting addition to the local and national dive industry. This wreck sits in approximately 140 feet of water with the top deck of the ship around 70 feet deep allowing for the whole range of divers from recreational to the technical diver.
 
Marine Electric
Zone 5 / Depth: 110-130 ft
The Marine Electric was a coal carrier built in 1944 and then refitted in 1962 to be 607 ft long. As the ship cruised off Virginia's shore the weather deteriorated and by the next morning the seas were between 20 and 40 ft, with winds up at 60 knots. By nightfall, the ship began to founder. A rescue helicopter from Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City was immediately dispatched to the scene. Upon arrival the helicopter found that the ship had sunk and 34 people were in the water.
