Come dive one of the cleanest, clearest freshwater lakes East of the Mississippi, Summersville Lake.

Summersville_Lake-bannerWith an average visibility of 20 to 45 + feet and summertime water temperatures ranging from 60 to 80+ degrees, come see why Skin Diver magazine calls Summersville Lake the “Little Bahamas of the East”. Scuba diving and snorkeling are very popular in this oligotrophic lake where sandstone cliffs plunge over 100 feet below the surface. Explore overhangs, boulder gardens, and swim-throughs while encountering massive bass, walleye and catfish.

Scuba Fun in West Virginia


A full service dive shop at the marina will fill your tanks and charter you out to one of the more popular diving destinations around Long Point Cliffs and the grotto at Bubble Cave… or for those with good boat-handling skills and a need to explore the lake on their own terms, rent one of our Pontoon Boats for a day on the water that you will long remember.
