Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Dive Haven

This flooded quarry is privately owned and just opened June 3/06 for diving business. Facilities are still under development with the owners currently operating out of trailers. A variety of services are available but call ahead to give them time to source what you need. The water is warm for the first 20 feet, then drops quickly to 45F. Visibility starts as poor (10-30') at the surface and goes quickly to very poor (<6'). A few submerged platforms and a nice wooden entry point with stairs are already in place (June 10/06). On the far side of the quarry is an antique crane/shovel resting in 40' of cold cold water. You might bump into it before seeing it. Dark 130+ foot depths are good for intermediate and advanced training, but might scare beginners silly. The shallows (above the 20' thermocline) offer poor to average vis and warm water. Dive Haven is 2 hours closer to Atlanta than any other option for blowing bubbles. The owners intend to sink some attractions including a plane, a boat, and a truck. As brush is bring cleared the vis is slowly improving too. Dive Haven GA (http://www.divehavega.com) is a short trip north of Atlanta, located in White GA. Take exit 293 off I-75 and head east three miles. Turn left immediately after the tracks then left again at the T intersection. Dive Haven is 1/4 mile down on the right hand side.

Did my final open water certification dive at Dive Haven. The visibility was about 25 ft and was told that was good for them. Lots of 'sunken sites' to visit, a van, Coke and Pepsi machines, etc. The owners are trying their best to control the algae and I like the dive platforms. A bit on the 'rural' side but they have changing rooms and warm showers. And the fact that they are less than an hour north of Atlanta make them convenient .

I visited Dive Haven to try out my new camera and housing before a big trip. I hate quarry diving but found Dive Haven to have some pluses: Very short walk to the water, easy entry, and friendly people. This is an excellent place for advanced training.
