Dive Report: Haigh Quarry

August 9th and August 10th of 2014, 4 divers from GLDL and LSS trekked to Haigh Quarry in Kankakee, Illinois for some training and Dive Cache Maintenance.  The divers left West Michigan early Saturday morning and met up at the quarry in time to get 4 dives in before the end of the day Saturday.

Whitefish Point Dive Trip
Sign up now! August 23 and 24, 2014
Our final Great Lakes dive trip of the summer is approaching fast and the time to reserve your spot is now.  Stop by the shop and book your spot today.  Each day of 2 tank diving is $120. For additional details click here.  Payment is due at booking.
Known as "the graveyard of Lake Superior," the waters off Whitefish Point have claimed countless ships like the Saturn that met their fate in brutal storms. Most were headed to the protected shelter of Whitefish Bay.
Whitefish Point is one of Michigan's 12 established underwater preserves. There are 17 shipwrecks listed in Whitefish Point guides, although local divers and Whitefish Point Underwater Preserve officers continue to find more. While a mecca for those wishing to dive deep, there are at least 10 shipwrecks within recreational limits, proving the area is not just for technical diving anymore.
Visibility is generally quite good ranging from 30 feet to over 60 feet on occasion and water temperatures are typically in the lower 50s.

Mid-Week Dives

Just go diving.  Stop talking about diving and start diving.  The last week of August we have two nights of diving scheduled at Lake Sixteen.  We'd love to have you join us for an evening of fun under the water.  Sign up at either shop to let us know you are coming.  We ask for sign ups so that we have an idea how many will be there, and who we should call if a dive is cancelled due to weather.  August 26 and August 27 are the dates for mid week dives in August.  As always, check our calendar for dates, times, and locations.  Also see the sidebar of this newsletter for dives in the next few weeks.
