I went scuba diving here on 8/17/2019. Average viz: 36-40ft/11-12m. Water temp: 61-65°F/16-18°C.
Went for a teaching dive with my wife. She’s only dove Caribbean and I was trying to convince her Quarries were equally - but differently - good. I failed. LoL She did not like it.

I wore a 4/3 wet suit with gloves and boots. No hood. She wore Farmer John 6.5, hood, gloves, boots and still got cold around 35-ft deep. I would guess the temperature was around 55-60 down that deep because I wasn’t really that cold.

Visibility was around 35-40 feet even though we got in the water around 1pm and there were A LOT of other divers. Will be going back.

Bring Cash! This is a play ground set up for scuba divers. Jet planes and helicopters along with the sunken boats and cars. The accommodations have recently gotten better. New docks and steps! Yeah!
Hope they might see fit to install hot water in the shower.

Went on a two-day dive last September. Great visibility, staff was kind and helpful, fish were plentiful, enjoyed diving in and through the sunken airliner. Remember is was comfortable (although chilly in certain areas) with a 4/3 wetsuit, boots, no gloves, no hood. Went down to about 55-ft.

Looking to dive here July 6th. Looking for a dive buddy. Any takers? is my email. Please contact me if you’re interested. I’ve been here once before on a two-dive day. From what I can remember, it was comfortable with my 4/3 wet-suit, boots, no gloves, no hood. I have about a dozen dives in since being certified last Summer.

Great platforms to dive from. Tons of stuff to see underwater. There is sooo much training going on that by Sunday afternoon it can get silted up (to be expected.) Looking forward to going back.

I was there last Saturday! Malia Smith and Jimmy Hawkins dove with me. Good time. Jimmy and I are heading back down Saturday. Love to have company. I hope to dive several times. Not sure about Jimmy. Send me a message. We can dive if you would like.

Unfortunately, I have to work this weekend. I am looking to go to Nelsons ledges sometime during the week in the next couple weeks. I know it’s not the best place but it’s where I had my checkout dives in 1978
