Scuba Diving…In New Mexico

Yes, you read the title right. You can scuba dive in parts of New Mexico apparently. Take the
Blue Hole, for example. As mentioned in this
article, the Blue Hole is
an 80 foot deep pool in Santa Rosa, New Mexico, which was formerly a fish hatchery. Divers, like the one who wrote this
story, flock to the Blue Hole as either a training or recreational site: some 8,000 diving permits are, according to
the article, issued on average per year. A private dive center adjacent to the pool handles diver gear rentals and
other essentials.
