This is a good place to do all kinds of dives. Everything from easy 30 foot stuff, to 170 foot + cave diving. A dry suit is really nice to have as the water is usually about 52 ish at depth. Vis can be anywhere from 6 foot to 30 foot + depending on your luck and depth. There's lot's of stuff to see including a airplane, lots of boats, and other misc. stuff. There's plenty of cavern and some cave in this old lead quarry so be careful. Some people complain about the hill down to the water, but its really not that bad if you're in good enough shape to be diving anyway. Air fills and the rental stuff can be had as well as Nitrox and I believe trimix if your qualified. Captain John is a wealth of knowledge in technical diving and will talk your ear off if given the chance. The gate fee is 10 bucks and the "tech club" is an extra 40 this year if you want to go deep with doubles. You will find divers ranging from open water to DPV cave divers here so finding a buddy is no prob. Dive safe!
