Alaska’s Only Outdoor Diving Board
It might not be the be the best place to hold your college diving team training trip, but if you are looking for a beautiful place to get-a-way for rest and relaxation (and a little “chilly” springboard diving) why not check out “Quiet Place” — in Halibut Cove, Alaska.
The only way to get here is by boat or float plane. Your hosts are Harmon and Pauli Hall and Family. Their two sons (Garrett and Ian) were divers at Homer High School and their dad (Harmon) who was also the high school diving coach decided they needed a diving board on which to practice during the summer months when they live in Halibut Cove so Harmon installed a Duraflex “Short Stand” with a 16′ Modified Maxiflex Model “B” Cheeseboard so his sons could get some board time.
Water depth beneath the diving board varies from 15 feet to 40 feet deep (depending on the tidal pool). Oh yeah — one more thing — the water temperature is “balmy”45 – 50 degrees in the summer.
Wetsuits available for those who dare and if you do make it up there — tell them Steve and Stan said hello!
