Windless Point, Divers Boat Ramp is a shore accessible fresh water dive site, located at Lake Jocassee, Salem, SC 29676. The maximum depth is 31-35ft/9-11m. The average visibility is 16-20ft/5-6m. Training platforms are available.

Latitude: 34° 57’ 47.8548" N Longitude: 82° 57’ 0.612" W These numbers are suspect!

On the opposite side of the lake, a remote boat ramp has been designated for divers’ use.

Frequented in the summer months by masses of diving students, the cove hosts a couple of underwater dive platforms for practicing skills. For amusement, divers have posted underwater signs, such as “Clemson Underwater Basket Weaving Meets Here,” or “Cow Crossing.” A grouping of plastic skeletons nicknamed the “Bones Family” is heralded by my favorite sign “Jocassee Skeleton
Crew—Graveyard Shift.”

Water temperatures in the summer range from 75 to 78 degrees, with winter water temperatures ranging from 45 to 50 degrees. Lake Jocassee is a deep water reservoir maintained by Duke Energy. For up-to-date information on water temperature or lake levels, please visit the Duke Energy website.
