Diving notes

Dives are done from a boat.

BEWARE: some dives need a higher degree of training and are not recommanded for recreational diving. The depth does change a lot at some places, it is highly recommended to have a bathymetric map.

Sacacomie has an arboriginal origine designating a plant used to replace tobacco.

The diagram shows the reference marks. The depth ratio is high. The maximum depth may reach 110’ in the East central part.

Entry points

Note: directions are accurate as possible. It is highly recommended to dive with someone knowing the lake. Usa a bathymetric map if you dive there for the first time without a buddy knowing the lake. Take note also that your cell phone may not work in that area in case of emergency.
