Welcome to Smoky Mountain Divers!

The Thrill Of Diving!




Im Fal__! Im Fal__! Im Flying!!!



It's difficult to explain the Thrill of Scuba Diving or the comfortable, peaceful feeling a diver experiences when in a weightless state underwater. As you glide slowly over the tropical reef watching the ballet of thousands of beautifully colored marine creatures, you're immersed in a spirit of inner space that is nearly overwhelming and beckons you to stay.


The water is warm and clear as you search for that "perfect shot" with your underwater camera. Then you realize you've moved to the edge of the the wall, where the bottom drops thousands of feet into wonderful blue infinity. Your first emotion screams, "I'm Fal__... I'm Fal__... I'm   Flying" through this magnificent liquid universe!


Then sometimes you get so comfortable that, just for a couple of seconds, you no longer feel that you're underwater at all. It's then when you realize, it seems you could reach out and touch the face of God!

"Philly" GPS: 2667 Harris Road, Philadelphia, TN 37846

Join the Guys and Gals from SMD at Philadelphia Quarry just west
of Knoxville for two days of scuba training fun. Meet us at "Philly"
Quarry Saturday at 8:30AM. We'll start our 1st dive by about
9:00AM and complete 3-4 dives.  We'll meet at "Philly" the 2nd day at
8:30AM, to make another 2-3 dives, and complete your Open Water
Diver, or Specialty Diver Certification Requirements. Bring Food!
Local area motels range in price from $55-$70 at Sweetwater exit #60.
That's cheaper and more convenient than driving back home. We have
been staying at the Hill Top Hotel (Exit #60) 423-337-3511. Tell them
that you are Scuba Diving with Smoky Mountain Divers for the trip.
Call SMD to Make Diving Reservations and help us Plan for the Group.
