Our daughter completed her open water certification at Pennyroyal Scuba Blue Springs Quarry. It was a great 2 days. Facility was top notch, equipment was in good order & the folks couldn't have been nicer. We are planning on getting our certifications now!

Is there a place to sit and watch or wait until your diver is done

Response from Cathy B | Reviewed this property |
There are lots of covered picnic benches along the quarry rim where the divers enter and exit. Beautiful views of the quarry rocks and surrounding trees. Changing rooms are close. Portapotties only.

We do have places for campers and RV's. At this time we only have two places for electric hook up. One on our top level and one on our second level. We also allow generators as well.
