First-ever report from diving at the HIGHWAY 15 (CRUICKSHANK) QUARRY.
THE HIGHWAY 15 DIVE QUARRY is Kingston's newest recreational dive site.
The quarry also known as Pittsburgh quarry and Cruickshank quarry is just north of Gore Rd on Highway 15. It has a gravel bottom and crystal clear water. It is fairly well protected from any wind.
