What is the diving like in Lake Pleasant?

It changes depending on time of year and weather and the water level.Winters can have tempertures as low as 49*F. Spring brings thermoclines starting at about 50 feet and in the summer the water above the thermoclines can reach temperatures above 85*FAverage vis is 20-30 feet but I´ve seen it at over 50 feet. The vis generally is better below the thermoclines but it gets dark and a light is needed. This year that is especially true since we had winter and spring storms bring in a large amount of debris floating on top.

Outstanding shots! Gives hope to the rest of us non-pro photographers out there.

Those are great pix. The technology is getting better and making it easier to shoot well. A simple housing with a strobe will improve color also.

People from outside Arizona and those that don´t dive ask me often about diving in Arizona. The fact is we do have some lakes ranging from large man made to small natural. Beside that divers from this area can travel 3 hour by car to Rocky Point Mexico, 6 hour to Southern California or 8 hour to San Carlos Mexico. Each of these areas has great saltwater diving.

For those interested in Digital Underwater Photography and debating how much they need to spend. All the pictures I have attached to this webpage were taken with Point and Shoot cameras and the total cost of the outfit including housing, 2 strobes and batteries was under $550.

Aruba (Antila Wreck)

Robert Walker: Dive 1 after open water certification, hit bottom, add a bit of air to the BC, tug on the inflator to release some and it comes away from the hose and the cable isn’t connected. No way to inflate at surface. Fresh training helped!
