Grays' Quarry I a great local site about 2 1/2 hours form the store.
Located along Interstate 26 at the Gray exit, and just a few minutes from I-81. Grays' Quarry is a three acre quarry lake set up for diving. Sunk in the quarry are a school bus, a 1967 International tanker firetruck, a Cessna 310 airplane, a 19' cabin cruiser, a SeaDoo sportster, a jet ski and nearly a dozen statues for great photo opportunities. Soon to be added is a very large houseboat that should allow lots of swim throughs.
For training there is a semi-floating platform about 4 feet deep making a great set up site for entracne tot he dive. Just off the 4 foot platforms is a 20' platform marked with buoys. Another platforms sits atop the fire truck at 50'-60'.
Gray's Quarry does not have a thermocline. Two aerators turn the water and oxygenate the full depth of the quarry. That makes water temperature the same top to bottom and the large variety of fish inhabit all levels of the quarry. There are some realy large Koi that travel together feeding off the bottom.
OnSite is a full size 'dive bus' with changing area and heat, a canopy with tank holding station and canopy lights for night diving. Parking is available at the top of the quarry where a portable restroom is available.
