First time I have dived here in 5 years. Friendly staff, courteous… nice change from Rock Divers. Springs have begun to seep in and fill the quarry causing colder diving, so a 3mil suit suggested. My only complaint was the algae that was inches deep in certain areas causing vis to be very low. Everything was covered with algae. Someone used to treat the water creating vis up to 20 feet at times.

Have dove this particular quarry over 20 times in the past seven years. Each year, it feels colder in the 40+ range. Algae has been a problem for quite a while now, but it is certainly a good place to train yourself for the lower vis type diving. Without having dived this quarry, I would not have been prepared for the black water diving in the Cooper River a few years ago. Anthony and the other guys seem to always want to help out and it's always a relief to have courteous hosts as I have never seen in Madison. Never too crowded as we have experienced with the "newbies" lining up the pier at Bluewater.
