View Full Version : Athens Scuba Park - Labor Day

My first post on the Scuba Toys Forum...

My husband and I headed to Athens Scuba Park over Labor Day weekend. The vis was pretty poor, but we were just glad that it was open and we were able to get another practice dive in before heading to Cozumel in a few weeks. We could probably see 3-5'.

All in all, it was a great experience. I would love to go back when the vis improves a bit. I really liked that we were able to park right by our dock without having to tote our gear very far. The staff was super friendly, and we were able to see some pretty cool stuff in the water.

Sorry to disappoint...the viz at Athens does not improve. You caught it on a good day.

I don't know where in Texas you live, but you might try Clear Springs (CSSP) in Terrell. Unlike Athens, there are fish and vegetation in CSSP. Viz is 15 to 20 feet. There is a thermal, so 3mm or 5mm is required. Be sure to dive the airplane and swim along the wall.
