White Star dive site is a modest operation that is a descent training site
for beginner divers.  There are three platforms which instructors may use
with student divers, and a few items that have been sunk that provide
divers something to see while conducting their underwater exploration. 
Depths range from 25' to 50', with a hole that may be explored that reaches
to 70'.  The 70' dive is not one recommended for novice divers, as the hole
is in conjunction to an overhead environment.  This specific dive should be
saved for those with experience for overhead environments.  For experienced
divers this is a good site to practice skills or newly acquired equipment
for familiarization dives.  On an administrative note, this dive site
charges a $10 fee per diver, and $7 for air fill.
