Hello everyone,

Anyone here in Michigan find any great spots that work as a good evening or Saturday dive location? Travel for me is limited so I am refined to most diving with-in an hours drive. A few places I have dove are

1. Otter Lake
2. Lake Fenton
3. Lake Penema (sp?)
4. Holloway Reservoir
5. Spring Mill Pond
6. A few local “ponds”

I am in just outside Flint, any suggestions would be appreciated. My primary dive buddy started back into the sport this year and hasn’t come up with any other ideas. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy every minute of having my head below the surface, but you can only look at the same scenery so much!

Hey Matt, I’m not from your area so I don’t know of a place to suggest but I did a search for dive spots in the state and several came up. I know that you want something pretty close but you may want to try that out also. Just an idea. Also, if you search for other members in your area, within a certain distance, you can send a message to all of them asking for ideas. (incase you don’t get alot of response from this forum post) Anyways, take care and get diving! Oh.. and if you happen to find any information on new dive sites, add them to the Dive Site location. Lake Fenton isn’t on there, I don’t think but it’s half way close to you, isn’t it? Just a thought.

Evening,


 


Thanks for the response! Lake Fenton isn’t too far at all; actually did my open water dives there when that time was then! For anyone who knows Lake Fenton there is some great items sunk there, but the boat traffic in evenings and on weekends is bad, to say the least. I have a boat and try to stay away from that lake as much as possible. Give people a boat, and a lake and for some common sense goes out the window. Don’t even get me started on the jet-ski population!


1 Note- to all those who use common sense on the water, thank you from a fellow boater and diver. We need to educate those who don’t know, and of course deal with those who don’t care. Boating is a privilege, diving is a sport!
