Myself and others from the staff of We B Divin’ are coordinating a trip to a very unique dive site … a decommissioned nuclear missile silo. Located near Abilene, Texas, the silo is 130’ deep with 100’+ visibility. Full of crystal clear water, the site provides ideal conditions for advanced training such as Advanced Open Water certification or Altitude Diver or Deep Diver. With constant water temperatures, unmatched visibility, adequate depth for deep dives, and a really cool name for your log book, Valhalla is truly a one of a kind dive experience.

The water is 60 degrees, 130’ deep and crystal clear. The silo is 60’ in diameter and everything from the dressing areas to the electric gear winch, lighting systems and the actual dive area is 50-70’ underground.

With constant 68 degree air temperature and consistent lighting at all times, and without overhead obstructions, the diving is safe and comfortable for certified divers. Valhalla is an altitude dive and for divers to have the most fun, we recommend advanced certification and cold water experience as well as familiarity with altitude diving procedures and good buoyancy control. Since divers must climb down stairs 30’ in full gear to get to the water and 30’ back up to get out, you need to be in good health and physical condition to enjoy this dive.

The trip is scheduled for August 8-9 and weather will not be a factor. Leave the scorching August Texas heat above ground where it belongs and join us in the cool water of Valhalla. After all, how many people do you know that have actually seen a missile silo, much less taken a guided tour and gotten to scuba dive in one?

This is a must have in your dive log! Get Altitude Diver certified and Deep Diver Certified while enjoying a truly unique location.
$100, one-day entrance & Altitude Certification
$200, two-day entrance & Deep Diver Certification
Books not included

$40, per day if already Altitude Certified.

Sign up soon if taking advanced training, as there is some classroom work to do before the dives.
