Rock Sink

Location:
    Rock sink is just southwest of the intersection of Bass Lake Drive and Ridge Road (which intersects with US 19 in Port Richey).

Description:
    The best way to access the sink is to park near the fence on the driving range property. The Chain fence ends about 5 feet into the woods and is easy to walk around. The sink itself was slightly disappointing after carrying a set of double 95's and an O2 bottle about a 1/8 mile. The max depth of the sink is 45 feet with really thick layers of silt on the bottom and sides. I counted no less than 4 cars and 1 pick-up resting on the bottom. They were all late models and appeared to be there for quite a while. They were fairly well buried, or else I would have tried to get the tag number. Even though the sink is open, I recommend running a line since there is a submerged tree in the middle of the sink with branches still attached. A pair of shears are also recommended due to the fishing line draped around the sink. This dive can be done very easily on a single AL80.
