Lake Phoenix

Sea Colony Aqua Sports has chosen Lake Phoenix as its primary location for open water training dives.  With a maximum depth of 65 feet, warm water and good visibility, its easy to see why it has been rated as one of the TOP 50 DIVE Sites in the United States by a national diving publication!

Lake Phoenix

No mater what your experience level is, Lake Phoenix is the perfect place to complete your open water training. Training begins at 11:00 am Saturday morning with an orientation of the lake’s facilities.  When you arrive at that lake, you’ll need to sign in at the “Dive Shack” at the front entrance gate.  Your name will be listed on the Sea Colony manifest and will entitle you to entrance to the quarry for two days of diving.  If you are planning to camp at the lake or stay in one of the lake’s cabins, you’ll need to pay your lodging fee directly to the lake at the Dive Shack.  Information on camping fees and visitor or snorkeler entrance fees can be found at the Lake Phoenix Web Site Services Page. After the orientation, we’ll break everyone up into small groups and assign each group an instructor and dive master.  Your instructor will then brief you on the day’s dives.  Typically you will do two back to back dives on Saturday afternoon and finish your training with two back to back dives on Sunday morning.  Sunday morning dive briefings will begin at 8:00 am giving you time to break down your camp and be on the road by early Sunday afternoon. If you get hungry, located on the lake grounds is P&E Concessions which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Alternatively, there are several nearby eateries including Subway, Dunkin Donuts and the Nottoway Restaurant. On Saturday evenings we generally like to invite the entire group to the Nottoway Restaurant where they setup their banquet room for us.  Dinners there run in the $8 to $15 range.  After dinner we’ll head back to our camp site.  Those who are taking the Advanced Open Course will prepare their equipment for a night dive while the rest of the group gathers around the campfire.  The night ends with storying telling, dive scrapbooks and smores around the campfire! Things to Bring with you to the Lake You should remember to bring the following items with you when you do you certification dives at Lake Phoenix Mask Fins Snorkel Booties Log Book Bathing Suit and Towel Bug Spray and Sun Screen Snacks and Drinks
