Gilboa Quarry RSVP July 11/12th


Outer Reef is hosting a dive weekend at Gilboa Quarry in Ottawa, Ohio. Gilboa Quarry is the best inland place to scuba dive in the Midwest! It is a 14+ acre limestone quarry, located in Northwest Ohio. There are wooded campgrounds encompassing over half the quarry's perimeter. It truly is a great location for diving and dive training. The quarry provides two distinct personalities: the shallow side at 5 - 65 ft provides great recreational enjoyment, while the deep side, with depths of 130 plus feet, is suitable for technical training. There is a multitude of items of interest for all divers; with 15 ? 130 plus ft depths, and many sunken treasures such as the Grumman airplane and Sikorsky helicopter, there is certain to be something of interest for everyone. Gilboa is beaming with aquatic life that is second to none. They provide a variety of amenities to meet your specific diving needs. Docks, benches, and underwater platforms for your convenience, be it open water certification dives, enjoying the underwater sites, or to keep your skills honed for your personal diving goals. Outer Reef will be leading a night as well, divers must hold the proper certification to participate. We will provide a cookout on Saturday night. Bring a side to share. Divers will be responsible for travel to and from Gilboa Quarry, use your buddy system, and carpool. Divers will also be responsible for rentals, dive site fees, and accommodations. There is camping available on-site, first-come, first-serve basis, as well as hotels in nearby Ottawa, Ohio.
