Join the Submerged family for a fun weekends of diving and camping. Lake Phoenix is a rock quarry that is perfectly set up for recreational diving. There are numerous features to swim to, lots of platforms to use as a visual reference while practicing skills, decent visibility, loads of bass, and a dive shop on site for fills and other basic supplies.
We like to use Lake Phoenix for classes and skills practice because of the relatively warm water and good visibility. It's a bit of a drive to get there, but it's always a good time with the group. We have a handful of "regulars" who are always happy to welcome more divers, regardless of experience level. We all just like to do what we love with fun people! Feel free to come by our shop or simply call to know more about the weekend diving trips!
Lake Phoenix also has camping on site, which is super convenient, and adds another whole dimension of fun to the experience.
Do more than just blow bubbles! We also offer skills workshops, classes, and guided dives on these weekends. So if you have something in particular you need some help with, a skill you want to hone, or something new you want to learn, this this is the perfect
Lake Phoenix has a huge shallow area with an average depth of about 20ft. There are lots of features at this depth...destinations to swim to...sunken boats, cars, a schoolbus, a little basketball court with bowling balls for basketballs...it's great buoyancy control practice!
If you go to deeper water, there's a helicopter at about 40-45ft, and a plane at 60ft.
There are also platforms scattered around which make great visual references for skills practice.
