Did a lot of training dives at this location in 2017, never had a bad experience here. They provide a friendly staff, fair prices, and a great staging area. The water generally has great visablity and awesome thing to explore at baring depths.

Our daughter completed her open water certification at Pennyroyal Scuba Blue Springs Quarry. It was a great 2 days. Facility was top notch, equipment was in good order & the folks couldn't have been nicer. We are planning on getting our certifications now!
