    Bluestone is weekend only unless they are hosting someone or by reservations and special appointment.

    Yeah, weekend only but will open for parties of 8 or more during the week by reservation as Rusty Shackleford pointed out.

    I could meet you at Salisbury Scuba in Granite Quarry (where you can rent some tanks) any of those days except Wednesday. Tuesday would work best for me. And actually, Salisbury Scuba is closed on Mondays but I could bring extra tanks if you'd want to dive that day and all you'd owe me is $14.00 for 2 air fills.

    The American Quarry is less than a mile from there. It is a small quarry and the main diving area is only about 40 feet deep, but there are several things in it to see. It does have a pit that goes to about 65 feet, but it is dark and cold. And when I say dark, I mean you can barely see your hand in front of your face with a light shining on it. But it is also the warmest quarry in the area, but this year, that ain't saying much.

    Just let me know and we'll see what we can work out.

    At Bluestone this time of year do you know about what depth the thermocline begins and what's the water temp?

    I haven't been there this year yet, but it is usually around 20 ft. The temp will drop from 5-8 degrees. Last I heard the surface temp is around 75°.

    I would be game to come as far south as Bluestone next week if we could find another six. The vis should be good on Tuesday or Wednesday after it settles a day.

    You wouldn’t happen to be going July 8, 10, or 11 would you?
    I was going to post on the quarry Facebook page but was unsure which one was correct.
