Charleston’s rivers are world-famous for the archaeological treasures hidden in their murky depths.
Chamberlain’s Gulch & Sugarbowl Reef
Beautiful pair of dives for anyone!
- Advanced Open Water required
- Certified Divers
This somewhat patchy limestone ledge system was carved during the last Ice Age by the old Cooper River system, when sea levels were much lower than they are today. At 75 feet, this reef isn’t particularly deep, but it requires some skill to navigate. We’ve seen all kinds of life in these reefs, including trumpet fish, scrawled cowfish and puffer fish.
The Sugarbowl Reef
The Sugarbowl Reef is a site perfect for Advanced Open Water Deep Dive training – with schools of fish and lots of invertebrates. It’s also a nice place for shelling and practicing natural navigation. Maximum dive depth is 82 feet.
