Windy Point Park-Lake Travis - Austin TX


Loading...
Windy Point Park is one of the top diving "hot spots" in the Central Texas area. It has been recognized by various divers and instructors from all over the state. Locally, several Fire Rescue and Underwater Rescue Operations use Windy Point Park as a training ground to help save lives.

We offer a wealth of items to find, explore, and seek out in Lake Travis. Divers will find boat wrecks and unique metal sculptures of a scuba diver, a sea turtle, a shark and a manatee along with other interesting objects. There is a jet ski, some small boats, a larger sailboat, a Pinto, and more! ( See the detailed map. ) There are six platforms available for instructors to use for training.

Divers with advanced training and experience, can enjoy the deep underwater canyon wall, plunging to depths well over 100 feet. Dress warmly however - the temperatures at that depth can differ 30 degrees from the surface.

Had a fantastic class - got my Deep Diver Certification. Thank you Robert Reeves (DI), Brandon (DM) and my new dive buddy Sarah. But more than just learning and growing as a diver, I learned more about my own personal abilities and capabilities. strengths and weaknesses. I’m a better diver and a stronger person for it. Thank you
