AIRHEADS DIVE OPS
What is local diving for Airheads? Basically any location within about three hours of driving or less. Louisville, Kentucky is not blessed with an overabundance of dive sites. The closest site open to the public is in La Grange. Because we offer so many advanced classes, we must travel to a variety of sites to have access to the minimum depths required by the organizations.
Below is a list of some of the quarries we visit on a regular basis. Call or check this site by Friday each week to find out where we will be going each weekend. Anyone can join us for these weekly dives. We usually meet at the dive shop in the morning and set up car pools to help on the cost. Remember: part of the fun of diving is the camaraderie.
