This location is setup for diver training and enjoyment. A lot of divers come here on the weekends but weekdays are quiet. Parking is great and right next to picnic tables to gather by and begin your dive prep. The water is just a short walk away and entry is by concrete ramps with floating piers to make putting gear on and off a breeze. Floats mark the dive platforms just off-shore as well as sunken attractions. Get a dive slate of all of them at the gift shop. Did 4 dives on a July weekend and temp was upper 60's at surface but really dropped when you got deeper. As it is a quarry there is thermocline here and it is cold at the bottom. Not much for wildlife or reef but the attractions are cool, check out the fire truck or airplane.
