View Full Version : Windy Point vs Mansfield Dam

Quick questions. I see a lot of folks go to windy point but very seldom do I see anything about Mansfield. Are there major differences in the sites? Is one better suited for a beginner? Just looking at alternatives (not that I have a huge amount of dive experience) so we can go other places as well.

I always go to Mansfield, I know it better. Plus, that walk up down and back up that steep hill does wonders for my figure.

I think Windy Point is the only site on Travis that does air fills. That might be some of the reason.

I did find some other info out while talking to some other divers around. One of the things they did mention was security for your belongings and having to suit up at the vehichle and not at the tables like at Windy Point. Another item they said was the walk. I guess from what they mentioned was you go down the steps, then over some rocks and then down more steps. Not sure if this is always like that or just when the water is down a bit.
