New additions to the waters of White Star QuarryWhite Star Quarry now is (or so we think) the only Freshwater Training Facility to have SEAHORSES! These Statues were donated by an aquarium in Northern Kentucky and are now underwater for people to enjoy. Also Donated was a Concrete Statue of Pandora that is a picturesque addition to the enchanted forest area. Please if you visit them refrain from touching since the statues are pretty fragile. Here are some pictures for you.

New Fish Sighted by Divers.
One of our divers sighted a new fish in the quarry on May 21. It appears from the description to be a type of Darter and probably was stocked with the Brown trout. If you see this fish while diving, please note as much as you can about the markings on the sides. It is a small fish (3inches) and there may only be one of them. If you can take a picture of it, that would be AWESOME!!!! Best guess makes it a Blackside Darter. If the dots turn out to be stripes or "W's" then it would be something else. See the underwater creatures page for more information.
Good luck hunting!

NEW DIVE SITE AT THE QUARRY - November 2007 - At around Noon on November 16, the "Pension Plan," a small runabout power boat slipped gracefully beneath the surface of White Star Quarry and came to rest in 29ft of water about 100ft East South East of the Police Car. The vessel is equipped with many of its original fixtures including the swim ladder, hatch covers, steering wheel and compass. A BIG THANK YOU goes out to Rob Gardin who donated the boat and cleaned it up for sinking. Rob had the honor of being one of the first divers to dive the site. More underwater sites are coming soon!
