Scuba diving in Nevada, you say? You bet. I got certified about four years ago before a trip to Mexico. I had such a good time I’ve kept it up here at home. One of my favorite spots is Sand Harbor State Park on the north shore of Lake Tahoe. The park is about five miles from Incline Village, Nevada, on Highway 28. Its only about 40 minutes from my house so I get up there at least three or four times a summer. The elevation there is just over 6,200 feet. It’s a pretty popular place and arguably the best dive site in the Sierra Nevadas. The beaches are actually sand which is really cool. The most popular area for divers (especially the dive shops wrapping of their open water certs for students) is Diver’s Cove. Its about 50 yards or so on the right side of the main parking lot. When I go I usually take a half-day from work so as to avoid the larger crowds on the weekends. The average depth in Divers Cove is about 30 feet. I like to venture out beyond the swim maker buoys. The bottom starts sloping pretty dramatically and you can explore the near vertical cliffs, rocks, and large trees. Be careful if you choose to surface as boats come zipping in and out of the area beyond the markers. There are even pieces of an old sunken ship or barge about 100 feet off shore. On the right side of the cove is a cave that’s fun, too. Visibility is good, ranging from 50 to 60 feet. I like this place a lot.
