Dive a flooded underground mine
Where we are diving
Bonne Terre is a flooded underground mine that allows for year-round diving. The temperature is a steady 60°, with no thermoclines, and requires at least a 7mm wetsuit, hood and gloves. Dry suits are recommended. The visibility is excellent at over 100 feet. Sights include: mammoth architecture, oar carts, scaffolding, grating, staircases, pillars, slurry pipes, the famed elevator shaft, and much more. Bonne Terre Mine is without a doubt some of the most unusual diving in the region.
