Hey everyone. Tomorrow is supposed to rain. As long as there are no warnings or watches or lighting we will still be diving. We have rental gear available at the shop (30% off except for tanks) hope to see everyone out there
I feel like this would be an awesome dive trip to do!
Welcome to the Diventures family, Sub Aquatic Sports & Service!! So excited to have you!
13 divers at Long lake tonight. One first time WND diver- Kyle Slusher. Viz was good with crisp water temps. Saw several Northern Pike and lots of Bass and Blue gill.
Thanks to all that stuck around and tailgated. We had 3 winners randomly selected for a chance at spinning the Deco Stop wheel. Those three divers are....
Alex Kienitz
Frank Passic
and Deb Wittkowski.
Get to the dive shop by next Wednesday to spin the wheel.
Next weeks dive is at Goguac Lake, Willard Park.
The first WND is tomorrow at Long Lake Ramona Park. Dive time is at 6:30. I should be there around 5:45 -6:00 to check divers in. 3 divers from the night will be randomly selected to get a spin of the Deco Stop wheel at Sub Aquatic Sports & Service to win a prize. See ya there.
Who is up for diving on Sunday?
Looking to dive at prairieville Park Tuesday about 4:45 or 5:00. Is anyone interested in going? Going to be a very warm day
August 5: Crandell Lake in Charlotte

Dive Time: 6:30pm

Lake Description: Crandell Lake was an old flooded gravel pit that is now owned by Eaton County. It is in the infancy of being turned into a county park. The park is 432 acres which makes it bigger than all the other parks in Eaton county combined! The lake is 160 acres with a maximum depth of 32 feet. Marine life include largemouth bass, bluegill, pumpkinseed, yellow perch, and yellow bullhead. This previous quarry has some interesting underwater structures. Check out the old roads used to drive equipment down into the gravel pit. A number of submerged standing trees still remain as well as log piles; these make great fish habitats. Currently, no bathrooms have been built at the park. There are plans to build bathrooms but the timeline is questionable. Once the bathrooms are built there will be an entrance fee.

Dive Site Directions: I-69 exit 60 head East on M-50 for approximately 2.5 miles. Currently, the parking lot is located on M-50 at the southeast corner of the lake. Hopefully, by the time we dive here in the fall, there will be a driveway to access from Flanders road to the west of the park which will allow us to drive around the lake.
Our friends Sub Aquatic Sports & Service in Battle Creek, MI are once again #OpenToDive! Support them and let's all get in the water ASAP! 🌊

Diving the Dolphin (and more) in the Straits August 6th & 7th 2022

Diventures Battle Creek / Sub-Aquatic Sports welcomed our first Diventures customers from Iowa, Joe & Stephanie Jordon. They have been diving for about 2 years, and have about 100 dives each. This was their first adventure to our Great Lakes. Both prepared by doing some "practice" dives in new 7mm suits in local quarry's . As you will see in the images, they did GREAT. We look forward to more Diventures customers visiting our amazing state.
The Dolphin is the newest wreck buoyed in the Straits. Resting in just 100' of water. To dive this intact wreck is like diving some of the Presque Isle wrecks but MUCH more shallow. If you get the chance to dive the Dolphin, please be careful not to damage this pristine wreck. This is a true treasure!

If you haven't tried diving the Great Lakes, please consider doing so. They are great diving, and right here in our own back yard.
