Sad news.

288 lake to close at the end of the year. The property is under contract and will be sold.

I got my OW here and dove it frequently year round. Sorry to see it go.

That's too bad. I did my Rescue Diver there back in April this year.

I did my AOWD in Mammoth Lake back in 2015, before they closed it.

Is anyone else noticing a trend??? :)
We all got our OW cents at 288. It is a murky, clear, odd, intimidating and fun place. Will be a bit sad to see it go.

So basically if I ever want to make a dive or two while visiting family down that way....I'm SOL. Without driving to Huntsville.

There's Lake Longhorn in League City as well, plus there's Twin Lakes if you want some zero viz training, lol.

Wife and I got our OW there, no attachment to it, just one less place. Once Southwest gets their flights to Cozumel up, then prices on American will fall, so just more weekend trips to better dives
