2 More Fun Dives Left For the Season – 30 SEP & 28 OCT Lake Phoenix

Lake Phoenix signTime is running out to get in a few more local dives.  In Aug we had a great group of divers join us for an amazing summer day at Lake Phoenix.  30 September is your next opportunity to be included in that group. With the average daily air temperature, still at 80 degrees and a water temp not much below that it will be difficult to tell that summer has ended.   This year once again we will cap off the season with our final fun dive featuring not only underwater pumpkin carving but a underwater pumpkin carving contest.  Register early these last two fun dives will fill quickly.
