Things to Know Before You Dive Lake Tahoe

Most Beautiful Clarity for Diving

It’s that time of year, heading for summer, for those of you who want to scuba dive at Lake Tahoe. It is a clear and pristine location to make that easy entry dive. Please remember that the lake is at 6400 ft. elevation and at present there is a lot of cold snow melt.

Keeping this in mind, you’ll need to prepare with high altitude dive tables and use a thick wet or dry suit. Also, think of how you get to the lake. Do you drive or fly there? Did you give yourself time to de-gas from sea level? Are you going to have to go up over a pass to get back to where you are staying? Do you know the symptoms of simple or severe decompression sickness? Include Northern Nevada Hyperbarics, the only facility treating decompression sickness, in your dive planning.

Northern Nevada Hyperbarics is at Renown Medical Center in Reno, NV. We are capable of treating all forms of decompression sickness. We have Sechrist mono place chambers with air-brake capabilities. Our staff has a combined 50+ years of experience.
