Alabama Blue Water is entirely about diving. No boaters, no beach, and no hassles. Their conditions are almost perfect for diver training or for the experienced diver to practice. Why? Simple, because the actual conditions (vis, bottom, etc.) are by no means ideal. Thus making the training you get there ideal for just about anywhere you go next! Visibility is good enough to see your buddy, but also forces you to stay close. The bottom is murky and silty, forcing you to learn good fin technique and buoyancy. And for the beginner the surface and below the surface is loaded with platforms (wooden decks both floating and submerged) allowing even large classes to kneel and practice basic skills, from 10' to 35' down. For the advanced diver there are true 'blue water' conditions and chilly (48F) 130' depths. The surface is warm (70+) with no waves or current.
