** Good opportunity for the first cold water dive of the season. 

This is our first scheduled dive of the season. It is a single day dive that can be a two day dive with the groups consent. Nora and the membership will make that determination the day of the dive but are hoping the weather will permit Saturday, June 2nd. First dive is planned around 10am. The divemaster, Nora, will give more details. Divers must fill in a release form available at the front gate. THIS DIVE IS A 1 OPPORTUNITY FOR ALL THOSE MEMBERS THAT WILL PARTICIPATE IN THE ST. CLAIR RIVER DIVE. It is a great opportunity to test out your equipment, new and old, test your compass skills, check to see if your dry suit leaks, get to use an alternate air source (that you will need for Dive # 4, # 5 and #6 of the St. Clair River) and possibly experience a thermo cline.

Water temperatures will be in the mid 50’s with the depth of 0-25 feet. There is a designated diving and parking area. There are 2 club owned platforms which can be used with the permission of the clubs if they are present. For over 30 years, Gulliver’s Lake Park has been a friendly, well-maintained family escape that brings guests back year after year. We welcome you to a true natural wonder, our 14-acre lake spring-fed by artesian wells. We also offer organized events, safe swimming and areas to host your next family or company picnic.
