I have taken a new job and recently moved to Knoxville, TN and would like to finds some dive buddies in the area. I am a certified Divemaster, but with the new job, haven been diving nearly as much as I have historically. I am simply looking for some relaxing dives in the area, and would like to dive this weekend (8/14/22 or 8/15/21) if possible. Also, would welcome tips on ideal sites in and around Knoxville.

Check out the Philadelphia quarry, it’s about 30 miles south of knoxville. It’s a very nice facility and has a max depth of about 70 ft. In Knoxville has the Iams quarry but it is river fed and does not have the best viz. It does have freshwater jellyfish which are very cool. It is super deep so please be careful. Check out ski scuba on Sutherland avenue. They are good people. Also if you don’t care to go an hour south there is another quarry with paddlefish, well worth the trip.
