My name is Karri, and I am PADI certified open water scuba diver. I am writing this blog, well frankly, because I haven’t been able to find very much information about diving in Michigan. My husband, and I took our scuba classes (we took SSI classes, but are PADI certified LOL!) fall/winter of 2007, and did our open water tests while in Florida for Bike Week in March of 2008. We dove some inland fresh water springs. It was great! Especially for our first open water dives.
We took on diving because we both have a love for history and adventure (plus, I always wanted to swim with the fishes!), and we are dying to venture under the mystery of our Great Lakes to see the shipwrecks few people get to witness. But before we go for the big guys, we wanted dive in some inland lakes. I have found only a few tidbits of information on the internet about Michigan inland lakes and scuba diving. None of what I found gave any detailed information, like where to go in, what we may or may not find, etc.
My plan, is to keep a detailed dive log in blog format. Each new dive location we do, I will write a detailed entry on it. Where we went in, what we found, water visibility, temperature, out of water conditions, etc. My goal is to help new Michigan divers who cannot find information on the web about where to dive!
If you have an inland lake to dive in Michigan, PLEASE LET ME KNOW!
