    They did drift dives on the Colorado River starting at the Ringbolt rapids below the dam. I understand post 9/11 security made things pretty difficult to operate. It looks like they have now gone out of business. I found this on the web.

    Oh, the charter shcedule at damdivers.com states:

    dive charter business. When I independently start up again, I will make the posting on this page. Until then, we are not operating any charters on the
    Colorado River. I can not remarkably refer you to anyone, since we were the only company offering this type of excitement/advance dive. First thanks for your interests, it's appreciated. - Drew"

    I hope this helps

    Dang. Sounds like it would have been fun. Maybe one day we'll be able to dive there again.

    THats too bad! I was told that it was a great dive! the boat drifted with you picked up divers along the way and when every one was back in the boat, they took you back up the river for dive number two. oh well, I hope he gets it back up and running. I have heard talk of some other folks wanting to set up a similar operation in the same area.

    I dove that dive when Drew had the shop & again after he sold it, Drew did a MUCH BETTER TRIP but both times it was a RUSH , funny that I see Steve N. here on this same topic I just researched, OK all AZ divers from years ago think back to Fred Steele, what was the NAME of the dive site we all dove in Nv. Lake Mead, but where would I send some one to find the underwarter park

    I wasn't on that trip. Let me check around and see if I can find anyone that remembers.

    Hi Nick, I dive with them several years ago. Ask Chuck at Summit Divers in Flag, he might know where Drew went. Adios Lea

    I did that dive 3-4 years ago with Desert Divers Supply in Las Vegas. They booked it with a charter operation whose name I dont recall. It was an Awesome dive. I highly recommend it if you are in the area.

    Doug was a great instructor and a blast to dive with. (702) 438-1000

    Hey Lea!! How are you? I think that you reccomended this dive to me. I have your divecon book. I'll drop it off at your shop(still by the cedar safeway, right?). Hope everything is going well! Nicole is getting certified next weekend! Unless we decide that it is too cold up at lake mojave.
