Scuba Diving In Lake George
When scuba diving fans think of Lake George they know that the world down under the lake is just as exciting as the world above.
Scuba diving enthusiasts will find that Lake George contains three Submerged Heritage Preserves administered by New York State since the mid-1990s.
Two of the the three scuba diving sites are in 25 – 50 feet of water and accessible to divers of intermediate experience. These two sites are "The Sunken Fleet of 1758" and the 1906 motor launch Forward, sunk in the 1930s.
The third scuba diving site is the radeau Land Tortoise, a 1758 floating gun battery described by the Smithsonian Institution as "the oldest intact war vessel in North America". This site is in more than 100 feet of water with water temperature ranging from 35 – 45 degrees Fahrenheit. Only advanced divers can access this site. Pre-registration is required and a specific time slot is assigned.
In addition to the history of the Submerged Heritage Preserves site, the natural sights of Lake George – its fish, lake bottom, and vegetation – provide plenty of opportunities for scuba divers of all experience levels and all ages.
