Evaluation

*Average:    3.91
Best shore diving in Ohio, and I would think it has to be top 10 in the mid-west. Located about 15 miles West of Findlay, OH by taking US 224 until you see a giant cement "Steer" (you know…a cow) making a left turn, going to the blinking light and turning right, it's about a mile down on the left. Lot's of things to see including a Gruman Gulfstream IV airplane. There are several different depth levels from 25 to 60 and then "over-the-wall" to 115 to 135 feet. There are several entry points, a platform with steps, and there is also a walk-in. They have a great dive shop and offer air to O2. There are several types of fish life from a school of rainbow (which expect to be fed) to a prehistoric type known as Paddlefish - these are truly a spectacular sight!
