Less colorful but perhaps even more atmospheric – scuba diving in autumn! Air temperature of ~2 degrees Celsius and water temperatures of 13 degrees makes it smoking.
This is the second video and third chapter of our #fourdivingseasons.
What can make a small lake with a maximum depth of 8 meters, a length of little over 200 Meters and a width of 100 meters so attractive for scuba divers?
Well, the Echinger Weiher is a (well known) and very beautiful place for scuba divers in the north of Munich, Germany. Furthermore you have to do a reservation and the water is always cold – even in hottest summer time rarely above 13° Celcius – but it is worth it!
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…
The first Dive this year – also our first dive in the eastern part of Lake Constance which has a quite different character compared to the area next to Überlingen -> soft heaps instead of a drop off.
This was a quest for a not very well known wreck at a depth of approx. 35 meters… near the city of Kressbronn / Gohren.
At a depth of 5 meters we felt like inside of a soft drink bottle -> a lot of bubbles comming out of the ground …
