About the Event
We have been asked for it , so here it is. Come along and enjoy this exciting drift dive at KP Hole at Rainbow River. This is a fun relaxing great way to dive. There are no runoff tributaries so the spring fed river is nearly perfectly clear. Clarity is its number one feature.
Underwater visibility is 150 feet plus. With no wind or waves, one can see to the bottom of the deepest hole. That would be Devil's Elbow at about 23 feet. You may even see a small musk turtle crawling on the very bottom chasing a fresh water shrimp.
Meet up will be between 6:15am-6:30am in the overflow parking lot across the road from the main entrance. The park it's self opens at 7am for divers. We will brief in the parking lot, gear up and head down to the Water Taxi.
We will take the Water Taxi up to the concrete wall where we will drop into the water, move our way over to the side to group up. Once everyone is in the water we will defend and drift with the river until we reach down to the Hole area. There we will surface and take a 10-15 minute break in the shallows. Enough time for everyone's dive computer to reset then defend again to drift back to the dock are where we will exit the water.
You will need a dive flag for diving and snorkeling. You can rent them from the park, bring your own.
You can also earn your SDI Drift Diver Certification on this great dive!
