Canyon Lake

Canyon Lake is a shore accessible fresh water dive site, located in New Braunfels, TX.  The maximum depth is 71-80ft. The average visibility is 16-20ft. Training platforms are available.

Canyon Lake is located just forty miles north of San Antonio and twenty-five miles west of New Braunfels and San Marcos.

Canyon Lake is an all around nice dive. The visibility is decent and there are quite a few things to see underwater. There are many common freshwater fish and plants. And there is wrecked cars and boats at about 40 to 60 feet and a forest at 60 to 80 feet. There are three places that provide the most common water access; North Park, Comal Park, and Overlook Park. The best diving is at Overlook Park.

Cayon Lake is great for recreational diving, there is a even a town that was covered by water when the lake was filled. I have heard some complaints about the murkiness, but this year the water was much clearer due to lack of inflow from the drought.
