It was cold, the water was cold, but still a lot of fun. Good facilities, nice staff, I’m told a lot of interesting stuff underwater (was to focused on my own equipment to pay attention) ;)

This is a really great inland diving site, lots of under water attractions and pretty clear water too! It has something for all levels and abilities and is well run. Handy onsite cafe and hot showers are a nice bonus.

This is easily my favourite inland dive suit. There is so much to see including a plane wreck, boat wrecks and deep diving. Customer service is good. Food needs some work. A little pricey for what you get. Become a member, it is well worth...More
