In a few words

The Flintkote quarry site is known for the transparency and turquoise color of its water, which resembles a huge swimming pool. In addition to the clarity of the water, a multitude of objects emerged in the water including a sailboat, works of art, a kitchen etc. enhance diving.

Summer and winter, the Flintkote quarry at Thetford Mines is one of the most beautiful sites in Quebec for scuba diving. This site is also ideal for all types of divers, both beginners and advanced. This is the reason why several diving clubs come to give certification there.

The quarry is 360 feet deep. The cliffs and rock formations are spectacular. Some facilities are already fitted out such as toilets, picnic tables and garbage cans.

The site receives more than 2,000 divers annually, mainly from outside the Thetford region.
