I really enjoyed diving the southwest corner along the limestone walls and in the small stands of trees. I'm sure there's treasure to be found along the bottom there and along the other walls. I'd just as soon stay away from the concrete wall that was built. I haven't had a chance to dive the rim of the island yet - maybe next time. I would guess that the visibility is good on one side or the other of the island on any given day. The visibility can vary greatly within a short distance along the shore - I think it depends on the wind. The pumphouse by the boat ramp had decent vis one day. We then followed the line west to the small boat and couldn't see a thing there. Diving this quarry is relatively new for most of us and I think there's a lot to learn about which dive sites will be best on a given day. There's been a consistent thermocline at about 28 ft. If you dive the SW corner I would expect low 50's below that - it's probably 60 ft to the bottom in that area. Computer's don't react to temperature change very quickly so it's hard to be more exact than that. Anyway, you've got to go out on the SS Minnow.

i stopped into the dive stop today, and talked to Brandin and Evan, they're excited about this weekend. they said that there will be many things going on this weekend. everything from raffles, auctions, boat rides, easter and golf ball hunts, and discounts on enterence fee's. the cook's said they will be having hotdogs, hambugers, and some other food there for us to eat. raffle tickets for the 50/50 (store credit) 2 bucks a piece or 3 for 5. the auctions are going to be a one year pass at the quarry and a charter boat dive for you and a buddy. there wil be easter egg hunts will be at the building for the advanced divers, however the egg hunt will be outside the buildings! and the golf balls will be around the various sites. Brandin said that he is trying extremely hard to get the plane down to the waters edge. however he said he is very busy planning this weekend. the quarry will be open around 9 am and the raffles and auctions will kick off around noon and will be drawn at 6 pm.
