    Texas Lakes

    Ok I know that it's not the best diving in the world, but what lakes have decent visability?

    You live in the wrong state for convenient local diving, bro. You just need to know that.

    Here are your TX options:
    • Clear Springs Scuba Park in Terrel, TX - Heavily used by dive shops and instructors for check outs. Nice facility with a viz scale of Great (+20ffw) to Crap (<5ffw). I have like 90 dives there but have not dove it in over 5 years (live out of state now). Max depth 60'.
    • Athens Scuba Park in Athens, TX - Small. Bad viz. Max depth 15' to 20'. I'm not a fan and I'm not gonna trash them here. Search the forum if you want specifics.
    • Lake Travis in Austin, TX - Probably the most heavily dived "true" lake in TX. But there's been a drought in TX that has severley killed the diving there. Maybe someone from that area can give some specifics. I have around 40 dives here but haven't been there in years.
    • Blue Lagoon in Huntsville, TX - Never been there and have heard mixed reviews.
    • Mamouth Lake Scuba Park outside of Freeport, TX - Never been there. Besides, if you are that far South, you might as well book a trip to out the rigs.


    Those are the "mainstream" dive spots. Others may know of a few hoels or hollers but it is slim pickins, amigo. Better build a pool...
    i'm not as think as you drunk i am ...

    If you are looking for just some close lake diving I recommend going to www.lakediver.com. There aren't too many close by but has some good information to what is around. I am out of Dallas and just began diving last fall so the only place that I have been so far is Lake Murray in Oklahoma.
