We have a group of 3 (so far) going to Blue Stone quarry on Saturday, 5/20 if anyone else wants to join. We plan on spending the day there, and possibly doing a night dive as well. It’s always good to meet more divers, so shoot me a message if interested. Below is a link to the quarry. It will be a good time!

Don’t think I have enough exposure gear at the moment. What are the water temps right now?

It’s beautiful out. We went to Fantasy a couple weeks ago with 70 degree water temps, 60 below thermocline. You should be good in a wetsuit and hood. Some didn’t even wear a hood last time.

Thanks for the info. Right now, I only have a 3 mil full and no hood. So, 60 might be a little cool.

Going diving in Venice next week for a couple of days and when I get back I’m getting fitted for an undergarment with detachable hood. After that, I should have more than enough exposure gear for diving the quarries this time of year.

I’d love to go to Blue Stone. Never been there and it looks very interesting. Thought it would be a good warm up for Venice.

Better pass this time. But certainly, post here next time around and I’ll likely jump in (pun intended).

BTW, any of your folks PDRA members? Just received my PDRA membership card and key to the PDRA quarries last week. So, I’ll be looking to do some dives at those quarries after Venice also.
