    Lake Travis conditions

    Has anyone dove (dived) in Austin recently? I'm wanting to know what the conditions are. We're doing aow this weekend and am wondering what the water temps are.Will a shorty do for the deep dive or am I better off taking a full suit?

    On Monday, vis of 6-8 feet down to 50 feet, then cleared up to 15-20 feet. Water temp was 84 on the surface and 82 at 135 feet. I will be there this evening with an Adv/Nitrox combo student, so I can update this tonight.

    After this evenings dives at Mansfield Park the water temp is still 84-82 down to 70 feet. Vis was a cloudy 6-8 feet down to 50 feet, then improved to 15-20 feet. Have fun!

    Agreed, I was down with Recdiver, wearing a diveskin. I was very comfortable down to 70 ft (our max depth) and would not have wanted any heavier wetsuit. Vis is not bad, 15 - 20, after you get down past 30 ft.
