Vather’s Day Scuba Diving

Lake D-Loch

Lake D-Loch
The Lake D-Loch in Memmingen, Germany

is a very nice place to dive! The owner has really taken good care of the place and it has actually a bit of “German Gemütlichkeit” – only garden gnomes are missing! 🙂

So an ideal place to go scuba diving on Vather’s Day! Especially as there is also a nice grill area.

Great Scuba Diving

The lake at this time of the year is only is about 5 meters deep. Later in June and July the depth increases to 10 or more meters as groundwater will feed the lake. This water basically is melted snow from the nearby mountains.

Nevertheless its a lot of fun to dive here. You will find a beer-table under water with bottles, a sunken small boat and a lot of sturgeons hanging around.

Semi-dry diving suit

Unfortunately my dry suit had a hole in one of the cuffs so the 2nd dive was not as “dry” as I wanted it to be.

And it was not as warm as I wanted it to be! 😉 After 15 mins I gave up and enjoyed the nice, warm day on the surface!

So taking it easy – on Vather’s Day!
