    Greetings,
    new member here (well, sort of... been hiding in the shadows for a while, reading) and have a query...

    Is anyone in Zurich (or nearby) and regularly dives in Switzerland? Currently I dive inland in the UK, and am looking at potentially moving to Zurich... but would rather not swap my regs for skis just yet.

    Found a few dive schools, but not any "social" groups or clubs that go diving on a regular basis in Switzerland, they all see to go abroad. I'm interesting in the lake around Zurich ideally... something to get wet at least twice a month or I may end up drying up like a prune.

    M.

    I recall that there was a shop and perhaps an active group of divers just outside Zurich on the lake, maybe in Wadenswil.

    Well, actually the Zugersee is not much more enticing...

    There's a lot of groups diving in the lake of Geneva and in the lake of Luzern !

    And every winter, in the lake Tanay and Lioson there's a lot of ice diving. You could probably find more moutains lake to do that in the german part of Switzerland.
