Lake Tahoe is cold water diving. It can be completed in the same wetsuit as one would dive in Monterey. Drysuits are also popular. Surface temps can be up to 75° in the summer, but don't let that fool you. Lake Tahoe has incredible thermoclines. At depth the water will be easily as cold as Monterey, or colder.
Since there is no way out of Lake Tahoe without crossing a pass, going to altitude after diving rules apply. Students are prohibited from leaving the Tahoe basin for a minimum of 6 hours after surfacing from their last dive.
Gear is not included but available at a student discount of $120. Click Here.
