Dive the QARWe almost constantly get requests to dive the wreck of Blackbeard’s Queen Anne’s Revenge. Unfortunately, we’re usually unable to accommodate these requests because of the delicate nature of the shipwreck site. But now, thanks to partnership between the Cultural Resources’ Office of State Archaeology, our Underwater Archaeology Branch and the great folks at Visit North Carolina and the Crystal Coast Tourism Authority, you could win the chance to dive into Blackbeard’s rich history with a scuba diving excursion to the Queen Anne’s Revenge in the Vacation of a Lifetime promotion.

So now you’re next question is “I want to dive on the site, but how do I win?” The answer is pretty simple. Head over to this page and share a photo that shows what you see as Beauty Amplified in North Carolina. The picture has to be from North Carolina and it has to be yours, or in legalese, no one else can claim the rights to it.

Fill out the form on the site, choose the Queen Anne’s Revenge wreck diving experience as the prize you want to win and upload your photo. Then share it like crazy with your family and friends. Once your photo is shared 20 times, you’ll be eligible to win. Winners will be drawn at random on August 5, but entries have to be in by July 31.

One of the best parts of this deal is that you’ll get much more than just wreck dive experience (though we think that’s pretty cool it in its right). The total package includes:

  • An oceanfront condo for two courtesy of Atlantic Beach Realty
  • A tour of Blackbeard’s artifacts at the North Carolina Maritime Museum
  • Tickets to experience the North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores and Beaufort Historic Site
  • A “Beaches and Banks Tour” from Southern Air
  • A ferryboat ride to Cape Lookout, where you’ll be able to picnic along the pristine shoreline with the option to climb the lighthouse for a spectacular view
  • Gift certificates toward fine dining at Circa 81, Bistro by the Sea and Amos Mosquito’s restaurants
  • A $1,000 Visa Gift Card to use toward travel expenses

Sounds amazing, right? Well it is! So pick out that photo you think shows Beauty Amplified in North Carolina best and enter today!
