This is a good local dive site and training location for people in the tri-cities area of Tennessee. There are two training platforms in the quarry. One is at 20ft and the other is at 60ft. The owners have placed aerators in the quarry to promote water circulation and by doing this have eliminated any thermocline. Several things have been placed in the water for divers to look at and swim through including a school bus, antique fire truck, a small boat, jet ski and statue garden.

Air on site, not mixing EANx last time I was there. Equipment rentals. Winter diving on request. Beats driving to Alabama from Atlanta for diving.
