Great place to dive if you can't make it to the ocean! Visibility was awful, but I think that was due to the copious rain the night before. Plenty of dock space, easy to get down to the water. You can get deep here, 130...More

Me and my dad dove here and had a good time. There were plenty of training platforms with easy access in and out of the water. There is plenty to see underwater from a sailboat, jet ski, school bus, etc. I would recommend making a...More

This is the best place to dive in Alabama. Great training areas and service is top notch. Great stuff underwater to look at as well. The place is huge with a depth of 130ft and varying temps depending on the season.

2nd time here and have had nothing less than great service and visibility. Lots of sunken debris to look at including a fire truck, sailboat, large culverts, and overall natural beauty. Will definitely be back !!!

Clean, deep, spring fed quarry with nice facilities. Extremely well run. Expert dive instruction and rentals. Owner and instructor Mark DiGiorgio is a down to earth expert.

This park looked amazing driving up, the water looked amazingly clear and there were a fair amount of cars in the parking lot, all good signs for diving. The service was sub-par (the lady helping us was quite rude). The park charges $27 per person...More

I did not see any rafts or people floating the day I was there so I am not sure. We were just there for scuba diving and had a great time.
