Shinkelbug (Atlantic) Quarry - Atlantic IA

The Atlantic quarry’s are a great get wet place here in Iowa. Many dive shops, and public safety dive teams use these for training and certification dives. Vis can be great during about anytime in the year, after storms it is usually reduced down to a few feet. Average Vis would be around 10-20 feet depending on the day. The fish here are extremely friendly, some divers take frozen corn down with them to and feed the fish. There is a great rock wall on the south side that is great for diving and full of life. The max depth we have hit was 94 feet and is extremely cold even in summer. Entry is just off the highway threw the construction lot. Many divers use this spot so you never know who you might meet. If anyone wants a dive buddy to check it out txt Richard Christie 712-263-0428.
