Haigh Quarry - Kankakee IL

Deemed the "Caribbean of the Midwest." This quarry is set up just for divers (No boating or fishing allowed). There’s a sunken boat, an old USMC dump truck, a rock crusher, and a few other sunken treasures (Most are marked by buoys). Not especially great vis, (anywhere from 5-30ft but good for the Midwest) averaging around 15ft. Great spot for training b/c of the many underwater platforms, two floating docks, rinse station, onsite dive center, and a beach entry. Also has a "deep hole", which at 80’ is suitable for A.O.W. deep training dives. Tons of freshwater game fish and some big ones, too!

Overall, a descent dive spot, but no comparison to a tropical dive site.
