Looking for a dive buddy for Bonne Terre Mine (Missouri) tour/dive Nov 14th and 15th. Check out their web site, looks pretty cool. Any interest ?

I would really like to try to make this dive.... I’ve been to that website a few times and it really looks interesting. Especially the part about the constant temp, year round. We need to work out the dive agenda. Since its a weekend trip..will it be one day of diving?

I have not done the diving there and some day would love to do it. I did research the heck out of it and be prepared. They have designated, guided dives that gradually take you on different routes. You have to follow these dives to get to the better stuff and it would take like 5 days of diving to graduate to the "good stuff."

Best of luck and let me know how it was, Mark (Squirt)

Looks like an awesome place to dive! Unfortunately I cant make it this time,I’m starting a new job and wont be able to take time off for a bit. I would definitely be up for making the trip out in april or may!!

A group of us would like to go there as well, thinking sometime next spring. I understand that it is expensive as hell for a day of diving, matching weekend costs for the quarries. Although to experience what it offers, at least once, will be worth it.

we should plan on heading there in the spring Ron!

Thanks everyone for the reply and interest in the Bonne Terre Mines.

Maria - Right now I am planning to go on Nov 14th and 15th two dives on Sat, one dive on Sun. I will have to lay off or stay shallow as I am flying down there (back on Sunday) . This could change as I have a lot of " side drama" going on in my life right now. I will let you know for sure. 

Squirt : I will let you know how it goes but won’t have time to get to the more serious dives. Thanks for the interest !

Ron: Anytime after the 1st of the year would be good. Just post a "buddy wanted" forum. I am planing to go to G Cayman in Feb though.
