Scuba Diving Site Write-Ups – Bass Lake

UnknownBass Lake Scuba Diving Dive Site Write-Up by Fiona McIntosh. All Open Water Divers – Shore Entry – Maximum depth 23m

Scuba Diving Instructors to Learners.

Bass Lake, in Henley-on-Klip just south of Johannesburg, is the most popular scuba diving training venue in the Highveld, with courses from basic open-water through to instructor training. An old, rehabilitated dolomite mine fed by spring water, it offers diving down to 23m with, you guessed it, bass being the most commonly sighted fish.

Scuba Diving Wrecks.

A number of wrecks – a bus, airplane, cars, and an old helicopter – make for interesting scuba diving exploration for more experienced scuba divers and , to aid navigation, the position of each is indicated by a marker on the surface.

Filling Your Scuba Diving Cylinders.

Air and nitrox fills, gear rentals and equipment sales are available and there are luxury tents and backpacker accommodation for those wanting to overnight. Non scuba divers can bring their own mountain bikes, kayaks and other toys, swim and chill out by the lake and fully licenced coffee shop, or enjoy 4×4 training, and hiking in the nearby Suikerbosrand Nature Reserve. But the scuba diving will be more fun.
