Water Conditions:
Oronogo is a great place to dive with the visibility almost always good through out the year. The Average visibility is 20 to 40 feet, is generally best below thermalcline and in Fall through spring. Surface temperatures peak in the high 80s  during summer, drops to 70 degrees around 40 feet deep and 50 degrees from the 2nd thermalcline to the 210 foot bottom. There are are not many of the shy fish in this quarry, but there is plenty to see with sunken Cars, Platforms, Boats, a plane,  and much more. Sloping underwater roads lead to the attractions making this a great place for divers wanting to go deep or stay shallow.
