1992 brought a year of change for Jim and the business. Due to health problems he sold the tree removal business, and needed to make a decision about to do with the ground and quarry. It was suggested by a close friend to open it to the scuba dive community. Since Jim wasn’t a diver he was a bit cautious about undertaking this new avenue. His approach was slow and thoughtful. One store was contacted, they were invited to have a look see and fell in love with the place. For two years they had the exclusive use of the quarry. Other dive stores were called and invited to dive the quarry and immediately decided to use the facility for training. Word spread thru the dive community and recreational divers, students and technical divers have been coming to Haigh Quarry ever since.
For the past twenty-four years Haigh Quarry has seen many divers enjoy our underwater attractions and photograph our diverse fish population. It is these divers who have made Haigh Quarry the dive site it is today, one enjoyed by students, instructors, recreational divers, we thank each of you.
