Rob;
Welcome.
There are many different sites at Haigh. The on-line map shows only a few, and even the maps at the Quarry do not show them all. Try to find one of the many bowling balls, or the even more numerous golf balls. the tricycle 'graveyard' is also not on any of the maps.
The Flamingo, the Larc, and the Aquateri are marked by bouys. The Aquatrei is actually marked by orange juice bottles. They have just put in an anchor 'graveyard', and are planning a Mamoth pit. There is the Rock crusher, and the drills as well as the boyancy course.
There is much to see at Haigh.
My wife and I dive one weekend a month, and just finished that weekend for June. we are planning fro July. I don;'t know if it will be the 12-13th or the 26-27th. We work every other weekend, so we can't go as often as I would like. My wife is also not very adventurous, and likes to stay in the North end. If she would only dive on the Flamingo, or the other sites I'm sure she would enjoy all sties.
Look forward to diving with you.
John

Hello everyone,
I am also looking to dive at Haigh Quarry, unfortunately, I do not know many divers. I was thinking about diving on July 12, 2008. Let me know if you can dive on that day. I am an advanced diver with limited diving experience.
