Personal Note
When the visability is good, this is a good dive area. There are several items in the water, auto's, ambulances and remains from the quarry operation. The South side is the shallower side with depths up to 40 ft. and the north side has depth up to 85 ft. Visibility is good near the walls and bottom. There is a good fish popluation. No air is on site, and facilities is limited.

Statistics
