It is both – famous and notorious. One of the deepest man made lake in the southwest of Germany. Very often it is offering very good visibility which makes it a well known diving site not only in this region. And especially technical divers like it: Matschelsee. Unfortunately this lake is highly frequented by scuba divers – und thus is is very useful that you have to sign in from the following web site to get a permission to do so: Tauchclub Offenburg.
In this first video we are just at the head:
This video will give you wrong impressions! Well, lets say it that way: a dive there was not as good as its appearing in the video. In the end it was quite muddy, visibility of just 1 meter and after more than one hour very “boring”.
Scuba Diving in the Black Forest, Germany. In the video “Tauchen in der Nagoldtalsperre – … und es geht doch!!” we prove that it is possible to dive there.
This was our first thought when we submerged in the Nagoldtalsperre- “… it can be done!”. In 10 years of scuba diving we tried it multiple times but every time we wanted to do it never again. This was because of the bad visibility in this reservoir in the middle of the Black Forest. But this time it was different…
After we found the hole in the lake we are now looking for the deepest spot. – the quest for “the plug”.
There are amazing places at a depth of 26 metres. We experience thrill, relaxation and discover new areas – all at the same time.
For now we just explored 20% of this area.
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 haven’t reached the bottom.
… everything during the test of a new underwater camera rig.
