This is a great spot for spring & early summer diving. Lots of sunken artifacts to find - planes, boats, buses, cars, and a sunken mine shaft. Visibility has improved to about 30' in the spring, falling to 10' in mid summer, and 3' in the fall. Lots of clubs use this for training. Maximum depth, apart from the mine shaft, is about 30'. Ask for the map in the dive shop that gives bearings and fin kicks to all of the sunken treasures!

The Innerkip quarries offer a wide range and variety of diving levels and different things to see. There's anything from buses, cars, planes, etc, which you can swim down and explore. They have awesome staff and friendly people. There's an air station on site and a booth for food, washroom, and showers. They also have family camping, a trailer park, diving boards and a playground. Overall I LOVED DIVING HERE!! It was awesome and I came back with my friends and family. Everyone should go since it's good for all levels of divers.

A great getaway location at a budget price! Very friendly operation, just obey the speed limits and other common sense rules. NICE beach for the kids and many dive boards for every level! The Scuba diving there is awesome--so many fish ! Bass--trout--crappies--pike--perch and many more. Interesting "wrecks" to encounter and you never know what you will find -- from coins to clothing to swim/scuba gear! The eatery is fun and they have marvelous fries! All levels of camping are also very nice from tents to full hookup. All in all a very nice place to go for R & R and scuba !!!

Great Site for training dives, the quarry silts up rapidly, giving NO Visibility. There is a Dive shop canteen and showers available. The best time to dive is in the spring before the algae blooms.

Visibility for this dive is better earlier in the year. It is a good little dive if you simply want to get in the water with various things to look at.

A little gem! A small quarry with numerous sunken boats, buses etc. There is a small but well equipped dive shop/rental operation that does air fills (will not fill tanks labeled for Nitrox). Store sells a map with all the sunken items marked with bearings. Great for navigation dives. Bottom is consistently about 30'. Downside is that with no current if the ooze on the bottom is kicked up the viz is gone!. Upside is ease of access. A much used training site. Washrooms, small food concession, friendly people. Good ice diving Entry price is about $6 per day. No dogs allowed in park. For questions call Trout Lake Park (519)-469-3363. West of Cambrige or East of Woodstock on Hwy 401 turn off at exit 250 (Drumbo) Turn right continue about 10 k to Innerkip. Turn left onto George Street Park is on your right
