Scuba Diving in the Althäuser See:

Details Althäuser See

Comments: A former gravel quarry which has been used as a fishing lake for a long time and is now also a lake for scuba divers. A diving base is also connected to it. You will get your diving permission (small fee per day) there and it provides a good infrastructure, possibilities to rent and fill bottles, parking places, a restaurant.
The lake is very interesting especially at depths of 5 meters and less. There is an impressive variety of plants. Visibility is not so good, but in return you have a lot of fish! In this lake we shot our first catfish of ~ 1,80 – 2 meters in length – with our camera.

Comments: Beginning of may the underwater life in the lake near Eggenstein (Karlsruhe, Germany) ist still “sleeping”. But you can see the wake-up of plants and animals in this lake with a max depth of ~10 meters. Also a good lake to test my new camera rig 😉

 

Scuba Diving in the Erlichsee:

Comments: A gravel quarry with a connected camping place, a restaurant and a scuba diving base where you can also fill your bottles: this promises a good infrastructure – and in fact it is! Not the best visibility ever seen but I would call this lake an “underwater garden”. A lot of young fishes. Don’t forget a compass, you’ll need it.

 

Erlichsee II – the hole in the lake:

Comments: Expected: beautiful underwater flora and fauna in this freshwater lake – found: not only this but also a spring underwater and a drop off !! Depth figures for this lake have to be corrected! And so far we have not reached the bottom.

… everything during the test of a new underwater camera rig.

Scuba Diving in  Linkenheim – Streitköpflesee:

Comments:  I nice lake where you can have fun – above and under water. There is an infrastructure, a beach, and more. This lake is heavily used at weekends – also for scuba diving education. During the week you can explore a lot despite the fact that it is not very deep (~ 12 meters). Visibility is at an average level of 4-6 meters.

 

Scuba Diving in the Brechtsee, Rheinsheim:

DetailsBrechtsee, Rheinsheim

Comments:  Scuba Diving education is not allowed in this lake but it is highly frequented anyway because of ist often very good visibility (6-10 meters). There is also a flourishing life which makes it attractive. Attention: There is no infrastructure, and there are only two entries where you can enter the lake as a scuba diver. Please consider that parts of this lake is for fishing, only.

 

Scuba Diving in Untergrombach, Metzgerallmendsee:

Comments:  This is a highly frequented and well known lake in the southwest of Germany. It is used for educational purpose. You have an infrastructure (meadow, beaches, toilet). The lake offers a visibility which I think is at average level. The word average applies also for the underwater life.

 

Scuba Diving in the Freizeitparadies Plittersdorf, Deglersee:

DetailsDeglersee

Comments:  This lake is in the middle of a camping ground. This means that you have to pay to get in, you also have to sign in for diving but you will get a very good infrastructure (beaches, restaurant, scuba diving base, showers, toilets). A lot of fishes and plants. If you stay at a depth of 10 meters you can manage it to dive around the whole lake within one hour.

 

Scuba Diving in the Marxweiher, Waldsee:

Comments:  Fish soup – that would be a perfect description of this lake next to the city of Mannheim. I would say: Fortunately diving is allowed after reservation, only. Because otherwise I am sure the lake would suffer. The lake has an average visibility but because of the richness of life this doesn’t matter.
