    Hey! I am currently a divemaster living in Saudi Arabia but will be home in GA for a few weeks in July. I am looking to dive in Lake Lanier some time during my time in GA but don't know where to go exactly. Is there anyone willing or able to help me? Thank you so much!

    I can take you out also,I usually dive off my pontoon boat out around the dam area. I need to get back into local diving,I have been a slack vacation diver for a few years. We need to get the looney birds up and going again,We used to have 20-30 divers with a looney bird dive and cook out about once a month,been missing it.

    I have recently been introduced to the joys of Lake Lanier. I had to take some students there and have been back a few times since. I'm going to check out wbp tomorrow morning. I have never been there so it should be interesting. I wouldn't mind checking out some other dive sites in the lake. I have a friend who likes to dive the lake and cook burgers on his pontoon boat. I'll let him know about the looney birds.

    I'd be interested in going in July. I'll be out of town the 22-29th, but other than that I should be able to find some availability on Fridays/Saturdays. I'd be all for having a cookout as well.

    I may consider that as well. I have lived on Lanier for 16 years and never really considered diving it. And I too will be out of town from the 22nd to the 29th gotta go down to Jekyll. No good diving there but some good shark fishing. May have to ease over to PC for the jetties or something.
    Anyhow let me know what ya'll plans are

    Love to get the birds going again. Let me know when you all are going! I dove looking for a lost ring last week, but it was really shallow next to a dock. I need to get diving again!
