Local Dive Travel - Balmorhea Tx
The Dive Shop Travel -Balmorhea
Dive into the huge, 74 degree, spring fed lake. With a max depth of 25 ft., and visibly ranging from 60 ft. to 100 ft., the diving can't get much easier! This is a great place to get certified or to do some continuing education. You can always just do a dive for fun and see the many species of fish, inverts, and birds that live in and around the lake. Two species of endangered fishes inhabit the pool: Comanche Springs Pupfish and Pecos Gambusia (mosquito fish).
