Came here with my friend on Saturday (mid-morning) to paddle boat. It was our first time attempting to do so and also at this site (never would have expected to find this quarry in the middle of an industrial area).
We rented our paddleboards for $15/hr and went right for it. They also have life vests available to borrow if you need. Kayaks were also available for rental as well as diving gear etc.
This is a well run, organized and very pretty diving area, would definitely recommend for an outdoor adventure!

One of the only places and if not the only place to dive in Birmingham! This beautiful quarry is perfect for divers of all levels! There are floating platforms at various depth levels with many fish gathered around them and also a variety of sunken objects waiting to be explored.
Entry for a diver is 27 dollars (with every 5th entry free) and air fills are 10 dollars. The park also features a shop with a full range of services and rentals. If you're looking to get scuba certified, this place is an absolutely wonderful place to do so. I got my certification here through Scuba Ventures and had a wonderful experience with Mark, my dive instructor and owner of this park (and Scuba Ventures).
This park also features paddle boarding and kayaking with rentals available.
The facilities here are kept extremely clean. The bathrooms/changing rooms don't have that musky feel, and the shop itself is a beautiful little building that houses a lot of gear and also a small classroom. Out front, you'll find some covered table areas where you can prepare for your dive. I'll definitely be back here as soon as it warms back up!

Great visibility and park facilities with motivated and friendly staff. The park is under new management as of this year and it is a fun place to dive and make new friends. They are reasonably priced and offer good rental gear and plenty of gear tables for assembly. The underwater platforms are well maintained and ideal for teaching classes or just soaking up some nitrogen while viewing the abundance of fish. I'm a PADI instructor and endorse Blue Water Park and will be returning with all of my future classes.
