The staff is great. Excellent about safety. There are outs of things to explore under water. It’s go so cold and no visibility. Nothing they can control though. They were great to fit us with gear and help anyway.

Great place to dive in fresh water. There's so much to see below the surface. It does get cold when you get deep about 40-55 feet according to the time of year. Planning many more trips.
