Are you scheduled to do your dives with us at Aurora Reservoir? Below is every detail you will need to make your weekend fun and successful!



  • What time do I need to be there?
    Divers need to be in the parking lot of the "Scuba Beach" at 8:00 am. The "Scuba Beach" parking lot is at the north end of the reservoir, by the dam. We will have our van shuttling gear over the dam to the beach area between 8:00 am & 8:30 am.


  • How long is each dive day?
    Please plan on being at the reservoir each day from 8:00 am until 3:00 pm (approx.). Usually the dive days are done before this, but each group is a little different and timing is based on the group.


  • How much is the Entrance Fee?
    As of January 2018, the daily park fee is $10. Please note, this is per day/per car.


  • What should I bring?
    We recommend bringing the following:
    - All SCUBA gear (either owned or rented), consisting of a regulator, BCD, wetsuit, weights & belt, tanks, mask, fins and snorkel
    - Logbook
    - Sunscreen/Bug spray
    - Clothes for inclement weather (of course we hope for sunny days, but weather happens).
    - Water
    - Snacks/Lunch
    - Swimsuit/Towel
    - A camping chair or tarp to sit out on (although not a real beach, the "Scuba Beach" is sandy).
