OK for practice. Viz was terrible at 10 ft, even though we were the 2nd group in the water. Most of the sunken items weren't interesting, as most are barely recognizable (terrible viz & coverage by the green growth). In order to find some of the sunken items, you need a compass/slate to go along with the online underwater map. Fish are intensely interested, until they figure out you're not going to feed them...then they split. Still a pleasant day. The shop is nice, but small. They rent only steel 80s...no AL 80s.

Close by and OK site for buoyancy practice. Some submerged boats/cars/busses etc. 2 training platforms at 16'. South Quarry max depth 24'. North Quarry max depth 18'. Very low vis when bottom gets kicked up. Dive early or not at all. Decent facilities with air fill on-site.

A great place to dive. Not deep, but well-maintained and plenty of things to see and play with on the bottom. Lots of life, both plant and animal. Twin Quarries is actually 2 quarries: The main (south) has the most stuff and dressing facilities, the North is a couple of feet deeper and a bit cooler and less viz but a good place to escape when a shop shows up with a dozen students and murks up the south.

This is a shallow quarry, but the water is warm and it is a great place to practice buoyancy
