My son and daughter both took scuba dive certification courses at the Quarry and had a wonderful experience. Dive instructors from across the state use this quarry for training purposes.

They have lots of wood benches for getting ready to dive. They offer fish food for the fish which are fun to feed. They also offer a deep side for technical dive training. They have air and nitrox on site to fill tanks

The local dive shop told me after my visit that they are no longer taking students there. They are exclusively using White Star now. That makes me feel a little better, but not really.
