Delaware is one of the smallest states of the United States. It has an Atlantic coastline and to the north borders upon Pennsylvania, the south by Maryland and also by New Jersey to the northeast. The state capital of Delaware is Dover, although the largest city is Wilmington. The state is split in to 3 counties which are Kent, Sussex and New Castle.

The average temperatures for July are 84f/28c (high) and 68f/20c (low), with July also being the wettest month. The average temperatures during January are 40f/4c (high) and 25f/-4c (low).

Scuba diving in Delaware is popular along the Atlantic coast and there are hundreds of wrecks and at the mouth of the Delaware Bay, there is the China Wreck, which sank around 1870, so named because it was full of English chinaware. The name of the wreck is unclear, so it is now referred as the "China Wreck", which is at a depth of 50 feet.

The Moonstone is a popular WW2 wreck, which sank after being in collision with another patrol boat. The most imposing part of this wreck is the deck gun and also you can still see the depth charges, which are still in their racks. The wreck is at a depth of 130 feet.
