First Dive of the year at White Star Quarry

Ready to go dive!? We are, every month we have a monthly dive at a local quarry. This month we are heading up to White Star Quarry for a couple dives.

Anyone is welcome to join us up at White Star Quarry for the monthly dive. Don't have a dive buddy, finding a buddy won't be a problem.

If you need any rental gear be sure to call the dive shop at (614)[masked] and reserve it.

Here is the schedule for the day:

10:00am - Arrive at White Star Quarry

11:00am - First Dive

1:00pm - Second Dive

We will try to be at the Deep Dock the first entry area. If it is full we will be at a picnic table. We will have our banner up on a table for you to find us. Landen will be there so look for him.

    I had a great time! This was the first dive for me right after training. Thanks to Erika, Landen, Joe & Joe for their patience and putting up with this newbie.

    Here is a link to a YouTube video of the 2nd dive. It's not the best in the world as I was still getting used to the new BC and buoyancy issues. I added some music so you wouldn't have to listen to bubbles.

    I was up at White Star this weekend. The weather was great, water was consistently 45-47 degrees at 35-40 feet. About 55-57 on the surface. Steve.

    Can't wait to dive this Saturday! It's going to be my first dive with the group... I'm looking forward to meeting everyone!

    Great googly moogly, surface temp is 48 right now! Looks like a 7mm for me!

    Adam had interest in carpooling up to White Star, if anyone else is interested.

      Adam! Count me in! I was definitely not looking forward to driving it alone. Infact, whether or not I went pretty much turned on that point. Landen, I'll be in Saturday to get "suited up!"

    I have only dived in the tropics, 15 dives so far. Am I in for a thermal shock? What to wear?

    • Landen S.

      Ya the water temperature is most likely in the mid 50's hopefully in the upper 50's. We havnt been up there this year yet so we have yet to find out.

  • Kay R.

    What's the water temp going to be?

    April 9, 2013

    • Rian S.

      Kay, we have not had any classes or divers go to White Star yet this year. We have had divers head to Circleville for the Tuesday night dives and last report as of today was 58 degrees (Cold without any continuous nice warm days to warm the water) so White Star is no warmer. With just over 2 weeks until the dive and not too many real warm days ahead, expect low 60's with it getting colder as you dive deeper.

    • Kay R.

      It will be a good time but I am not a cold water diver. I may have to pass on this dive.

  • Ray M.

    This is my first time participating. Can I get some more details. Is there car pooling for one?

    April 9, 2013

    • Doris

      Hi Ray, I was wondering the same thing. I am happy to car pool with you. It's my first time participating too. Got certified a year ago so I'm really looking forward to the practice. I dived about 12 times now.

      Unfortunately I had to have shoulder surgery last week and now looks like I might not be recovered in time.
