It was the golf ball challenge tonight. We hit and placed golf balls with various point values in the lake. The top three point holders got the 1st - 3rd for our point system.

Viz was lower then typical. We followed the under water rope course installed by another local dive club. There’s tubes to swim through and a trampoline if you want to do a bounce dive.

A bizarre underwater scene of mountains, pillars, and spires where areas were missed by the mining operations. The scene somewhat resembles a coral reef without the coral. It is marked by dive flags on the trees, tank benches, and a short walking path to the lake. The formations are found in the central portion of the lake adjacent to the Trail. The depth is only 30 feet, so even beginner divers can enjoy the scenery. This lake keeps its visibility quite well, and is known for its snapping turtles.

Do not dive the smaller north fishing lake there, but instead walk up (south) the small path a short distance to the Falling Water’s Trail, where a chain-link fence is located just across from the dive site. It is easily visible by a diver’s flag on the tree. Most divers choose to suit up in the parking area and walk with their equipment to the dive site, as it is only a short distance. There is a distinct drop-off along the edge of the trail which can be easily seen.

Anybody planning on diving at Lime Lake in the next few weeks?
Dewayne74 - 4/23/2015 6:14 PM
I wouldn’t mind diving Lime again. Would be sometime in May before I would be able to.

Nice lake to dive
Dewayne74 - 7/06/2014 12:29 PM
Pretty cool dive site. I will definitely go back for another dive. It’s a bit of a walk to get back there with all your gear but well worth it. I would suggest a small wagon for gear if possible.
Eric_R - 7/06/2014 5:27 PM
I want to do a night dive there.
Dewayne74 - 7/06/2014 7:38 PM
I think that would be pretty cool. I just started my advanced certification and was thinking that might be a cool place to do the night dive!

This is the closest thing to a coral reef your going to find in Michigan.
