|Details:||Outer Reef is hosting a dive weekend at Haigh Quarry in beautiful Kankakee, IL. Just over 2 hours away from Indianapolis, this limestone quarry is rich with history. Haigh Quarry is a full-service dive center and is one of the finest aquatic environments in the midwest. This is an old quarry with depths to 85 feet, sheer cliffs and rock piles and a large aquatic population that includes sunfish, bluegill, catfish, bass and northern pike. The north end of the quarry is relatively shallow at about 25-30 Ft deep. It is home to a wide variety of underwater attractions, such as a firetruck, a LARC, the S.S. Flamingo, and the only Manta Ray in the midwest. Outer Reef will be leading Deep Dives and Night Dives, for those who hold the proper certifications.
We will provide a cookout on Saturday night. Bring a side to share.
We will also be handing out our coveted “Traveling Trash Trophy”. This is award is given to the diver who collects the most trash on a trip. The diver gets to keep the trophy until the next event and it will be passed on the next diver. Mesh bags for underwater clean up will be provided.
Divers will be responsible for travel to and from Haigh Quarry, use your buddy system and carpool. Divers will also be responsible for rentals, dive site fees, and accommodations. There is camping available nearby at the KOA as well as hotels in Kankakee, IL.
