Every trip to the flooded Hemmoor quarry in Germany is extremely exciting. I won’t lie if I say that this is one of the best inland diving sites in this part of Europe and one where a weekend dedicated to diving seems too short a time.
This time we came to the site on the occasion of the third edition of the Polish-German Diving Demo Days, jointly organized by DIVERS24 and TAUCHER.NET. The weather was great, as were the conditions, which of course translated into the number of divers present. Certainly, their number was further increased by the Rebreather Forum, which took place in parallel, part of which we also had the opportunity to participate in.
Our booth was visited by a mass of divers with very different levels of training and diametrically opposed needs in terms of lighting and heating canisters. So we had an ideal opportunity to prove ourselves and present the best solutions for individual divers. Demo Days events, which allow you to test your equipment, always bring a mass of interesting comments. This time was no different when divers returning from the water handed over their equipment and shared their impressions over a mug of warming coffee.
We also couldn’t deny ourselves from doing a few dives ourselves, because, as I mentioned, the site is fantastic. The quarry presented its particularly beautiful side to us on a night dive, when we were practically the last people in the area. Fortunately, we had a local guide underwater in the form of one of the largest perches I’ve ever seen in my life, who accompanied us throughout our time underwater and showed us around his kingdom.
