I want to go there. Has anyone been there? File some more reports please.

I’ve never been, but I’d like to go here as well. You need to be a certified/insured Instructor...OR with a group that has a certified/insured Instructor, to get in. Some of the dive shops in Austin take trips here.

Here is the dive site listing on DiveBuddy:

I’d like to dive there as well. If you ever find a group going there Bill, let me know. We could carpool down.

I called RPR and got some information. You have to be either a certified instructor or with one that has current insurance. I called RPR and they said some dive shops have open invites to join them if they have a class. (I know Aqua Trek did this at least once.) They named Scuba Land Adventures in Austin as a shop that goes there every week. I called SLA and they DON’T allow you to join them when they have classes. Scuba Land says they have a dive buddy club and they sometimes have events that are open invite to dive for fun. I signed up for the email notification list when they have events. This SLA buddy club costs $45 to join. (But has a few other benefits like a t-shirt, discounts, and free air fills for events.) And for all I know I’ll have to join SLA’s dive buddy club to be allowed to dive this quarry with SLA. Adding the $20 park fee and it comes to $65 to spend one day there. RPR also said if I call them with a specific date I will be there they will tell me who’s going and how to contact them to see if they will let me go. The bottom is RPR couldn’t really answer my question on how to find a group to join to just go and dive it. They don’t make it easy to visit just to dive it for fun.

Thanks for the info. RPR is doing divers a disservice by operating this way. They are catering to dive shops and excluding the product of dive shop services: certified divers. It makes no sense. RPR needs to get their own insurance allow open entry like all the other scooba parks. The other private parks seem to get by just fine for $20/day entry. All we’re getting for $20 is stairs anyway. Someone else dug the hole.
