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”.
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 …
Last week in the Lake Constance near the city of Meersburg: We’ve been able to add some ‘takes’ to our last video about this very rich dive site.
And even now there is much more to discover… But to visit these sights we would have to upgrade our diving skill to a tek level
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.
