I use to go here a lot. I will not ever go there again. The guy that manages the place is rude, unprofessional, and uncivilized. I have never had an experience as awful like this anywhere else. I was disappointed and absolutely ashamed of this establishment!

Funny you joined the day of the incident. Your mom should have had her instructor insurance up to date with her training organization. A lot? Maybe a few times in your short diving experience have you visited this establishment.

Made 2 dives this past weekend. Nice new covered decks/prep areas, smooth entry deck (be careful, it’s a little slick). Nice water, good vis. Affordable. Friendly folks. We had a nice time and enjoyed the dives.

Great place that is easy to get too! Prepare for the chill! Thermoclines anytime of year, not a warm water dive spot. Just good fun to explore and relax.

I was certified here in the mid 90’s. The owners have made many improvements and I understand more are in the works. The new entry and sun decks are amazing. It’s a great place to spend the day, diver or not!

Great location! Very clear waters that get even clearer as you go deeper. Went down to 102 feet this past weekend. It was cold, so definitely would recommend a thick wetsuit.

Site offers a monthly night dive that has evening entertainment and BBQ.

Owner is currently making improvements. Just upgraded/improved the buoyancy navigation course and has plans to sink a small plane in the quarry this weekend. Definitely an up and comer and one to check out as the improvements top side to go with the beautiful waters.
