Where is the closest airport to White Star Quarry?

  • The best airport to use will depend on what airlines you have local access to and what fares are available. The closest major airport to White Star is in Toledo.
  • The Detroit airport is best for international flights. 

Do I need to come with a dive buddy?

  • It’s not necessary to come with a dive buddy. Let the organizers know ahead of time if you are a single diver and we will do our best to get you in with a group of divers. The intent of the Dive Gathering is to come and make new friends and dive with new buddies. Participation is encouraged.

What diving gear do I need to bring?

  • You should bring all basic equipment to make your dives comfortable and safe. Tanks, weight belts, and BCD’s are available for rent from White Star in limited quantities. See their website for details.
