Is there anyone from Fort Myers here that knows if anyone dives that big quarry lake off of Alico Road? Just wondering.

I know where your talking about. I know people dive off the billboard into the lake, but not sure about SCUBA...

Looks a little murky... Ft. Myers Condo Rental (http://www.ftmyerscondorental.net/pictures.html)

Seems like a great place for gators. :smiley21:

I dunno, that could be. I have never seen that part of it if it is.

I'm pretty sure there aren't any apartments on that lake your thinking of...

Yeah, it might not actually be the lake... I think this one is: 11840 Alico Road, Fort Myers, Florida - Google Maps (http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&q=11840+Alico+Road,+Fort+Myers,+Florida+&ie=UTF8&ll=26.489626,-81.76609&spn=0.027463,0.039997&t=h&z=15&iwloc=addr)

No the lake I'm talking about is on the corner of 41 and Alico. It is in old quarry. You can tell by the shape.

OK, this must be it: from: 26.492737,-81.839647 - Google Maps (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&hl=en&geocode=&saddr=26.492737,-81.839647&daddr=&mra=mi&mrsp=0&sz=15&sll=26.493006,-81.840205&sspn=0.027462,0.039997&ie=UTF8&t=h&z=15)

(I lived in N. Ft. Myers back in 2001, but didn't get certified to go diving until after I had moved away.)

Si, it is the one right on Alico Road. I remember going there a while ago and thinking, "wow that's pretty clear." I think I may go check it out.

If you find something, let me know. I'm a Naples guy, and I'm always looking for stuff to dive around there.
