Dare County’s Current TV examines the history of treacherous waters off the coast of the Outer Banks and the maritime history on display at the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum in Hatteras village.
A new video takes a deep dive into the dangers of North Carolina’s Graveyard of the Atlantic and tours the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum in Hatteras Village.
Viewers will take an underwater tour of the Graveyard of the Atlantic, home to more than 2,000 shipwrecks that met their end while attempting to navigate the treacherous Diamond Shoals area that stretches along the coast of North Carolina.
The video also features the history of the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum and its displays and resources that are offered to Outer Banks residents and visitors, as well as students all across the country.
The video was produced by Current TV, which is supported by the towns of Duck, Southern Shores, Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills, Nags Head and Manteo, Dare County Government, Dare County Schools, UNC Coastal Studies Institute and College of The Albemarle.
Joining locations in Beaufort and Southport, the facility in Hatteras is one of three Maritime Museums in the state that work to preserve, protect and present North Carolina’s coastal history.
