Two dive entries - The one closest to the fun stuff a bit difficult, the other closest to the platforms very easy. Bottom mostly level at 50 ft with some topography. Rock crusher dual-pit to 70 ft with easy swim-thru under dividing wall (several feet of clearance) and spiral staircase. Several boats, cars, etc. Not much plant life in late fall. Several varieties of fish. This is a textbook Nitrox/big-tank/long-bottom-time dive with a lot of real-estate to explore. Rock crusher is a nice multi-level dive. No dressing facilities observed but plenty of room in the outhouse-style restrooms.

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.

Directions on web site are excellent. The quarry is a first rate operation ran by great folks, with a deep-entry end and a shallow-end with a drop-off. Average depth is 50-60 ft. Several boats, cars, etc are spread around the bottom, as well as a swim-thru semi-trailer downward-sloped from about 10-40 Ft. NITROX available. The bigger pieces of quarry equipment are just beneath the surface at the shallow end. A public swimming beach/recreational area is also available, as are excellent restrooms, changing areas, etc.
