Dive Weekend Report: 4/20-22/07

This weekend we were at the Lake Tenkiller State Park dive area (Area D). The staff and some of the students who were also in Cozumel, MX, one month ago were very unhappy about the conditions this past weekend (though they are typical for April).

Surface temperatures (down to approximately 60 feet) were in the mid-50’s (55°-58°F). Below 60 feet the temperature dropped to a frigid 44°F (recorded at 82 feet). Visibility was marginal, and improved significantly once at deeper depths (generally below the thermocline).

Our students did survive and completed all of their skills despite the frigid conditions. Big Daddy’s helped to keep everyone warm and hunger-free with their great food and milkshakes.
