Atlantic Quarry

Mar
09

The Atlantic Quarry is an old pit mine owned by Schildberg Construction http://www.schildberg.com/. The quarry is a great place to have fun with some local diving. Many dive shops, and public safety dive teams use the quarry for training and certification dives. Visibility varies greatly depending on local weather conditions but average visibility is usually around 10-15 feet. Storms usually tend to stir things up and the visibility can be reduced to a few feet or even inches. The fish in the quarry are extremely friendly.
