About Us 

Athens Scuba Park

Since 1987, Athens Scuba Park has always been a safe & relaxing location for divers to come out and spend a day or a weekend away from the city.

Being divers ourselves, we were able to build exactly what we wanted. The spring-fed warm waters boast an average visibility of 35’ that can peak at 70’. The lake’s depth is from 20 to 35 feet with the park facilities designed for maximum safety & enjoyment for divers. There are 11 diving docks with shaded pavilions for sun & rain protection, hot/cold showers w/ shampoo & conditioner in the bath house and camping areas for all size groups.

We have a wide range of 30+ wrecks to discover. Dive thru our new 60’ Hawker 600 Jet or investigate our three new 30’ sail boats. You can dip down onto the Take Two, a triple-deck houseboat as well as explore the DART bus that made its last stop over off of dock # 7. Then after that, make your way over to dock # 11 where a Lockheed C-140 Jet Star plane also arrived at its last destination.

Our store is a full service, fully stocked dive shop. We price our gear very competitively and provide smaller open water dive classes. We also offer in-house Specialty Courses for the adventurous!

Athens Scuba Park With the consistent upgrading of the amenities, RV hookups and gear rinse stations, the many more boats, airplanes, motorcycles, and golf cart, we are always striving to make each guest’s visit here the most fun, the most enjoyable and the safest place to dive.

Dive In

More boats, airplanes, motorcycles and a space capsule round out the menu of playful quarry attractions, offering divers hours of enjoyment and underwater photographers a wide variety of unusual backdrops. Look around while you’re here. From the sugar sand volleyball court to the full line of White’s Metal Detectors on the wall, you’ll have a feeling of entertainment and adventure.
