Made a 3hr trek this week to dive what I found to be the best location in Ky. A spring fed quarry dive site with depths up to 127', the water has unusual clarity for an inland location. I had expected the typical lake murk and debris but was pleasantly surprised at visibility over 30' due to recent rains.
Pro shop is at top of hill, get all your stuff here before you drive down-- hill is very steep and not conducive to foot traffic. Air fills are available at fair prices, and equipment rental should you need. Staff is very helpful and friendly. First visit divers are issued a hard card for ID for quick repeat registration.
Driving down the hill to the entry area, you can drive right up to the tables next to the water and unload your equipment and then park nearby. Very little dust on the unpaved roads- nice. waterside tables are covered, allowing you to suit up and literally stride right into the deep water. Awesome!
Underwater attractions are neat- fire truck, cabin cruiser, assorted stuff along with the fish make for a fun dive. Water was quite warm except for near the firetruck where it dropped approx 20-30deg, I had a shorty on and was a bit too cold. I was only able to do one tank, and next time I will definitely do two. Was there on a Friday afternoon and only 4 other people there. Wonderfully relaxed and enjoyable afternoon.
Support facilities are limited- no on-site food, only 2 portapotties (one by shop, 1 by quarry), and no changing area. Come prepared for these drawbacks and you'll be OK. A pretty fair amount of debris that could be cleaned up to make the site more attractive is present, but does not affect the dive experience.
Didn't try the training, so can't speak for that.
Look forward to returning.
