Just because we live in a black water state does not mean we cannot dive. We have many clear lakes within 4 hours of Topeka – Table Rock, Beaver, Taneycomo, Bull Shoals, Norfolk and a few others. These lakes offer an atmosphere of underwater enjoyment without the great expense of traveling to the ocean.
Right now, in the winter months, you will have the best visibility of the year as algae is not growing and there is little run off. If there is ice cover, it is even better!
