Averaging between 35’ - 50’ of underwater visibility, there’s no telling what you’ll see in the spring-fed lake at Athens Scuba Park. Novice and expert divers alike enjoy swimming in and around 30+ wrecks that include actor Clint Eastwood’s Film Crew’s triple-decker houseboat (the Take Two), a Lockhead C140 Jet Star Plane, a DART Bus, and others. More boats, another airplane, motorcycles, and a grain silo painted like a space capsule round out the menu of playful quarry attractions, offering divers hours of enjoyment and underwater photographers a wide variety of unusual backdrops.
Join in the fun during scheduled “treasure hunts” and win fantastic prizes from the dive shop.
