    We use a charter. They all are good, just have different focuses.

    Also, if you are looking for people to dive with, check out the club Urge to Submerge. They have active divers, of all ages and skill levels. Diving and non-diving activities. Check them out at http://www.urgetosubmerge.com/

    Ghost Ships is a really neat event. Lots of different vendors, clubs, activities and just a lot to see and learn about diving and the Great Lakes in general.

    Hi again guys!
    .....and you thought you got rid of me so easily *wink* LOL.

    Hope the Urge to Submerge xmas party was a blast. Our household has been busy between the kids and a new job for me, so we've been laying a little low. Am looking forward to hearing about it!

    Mstrdvr: Randy this is a great group of folks and if you really want to dive the lakes there are plenty of folks that will go with you. Besides....you owe me a dive, remember!? Give us a call once the ice leaves the lake and we'll set something up. :)

    Great Ice dive, it was good to see so many divers out it looked like fun I was not to shure about the wet suit but its like Daryl said if its a good wet or semi dry they work well, maybe next year I'll try it. Did your club plan any dives for the next couple of months.

    We do have some dives in the next few months. We will be diving in Cedar Lake, Lake Geneva, and Lake Michigan starting in mid April!

    What are the conditions (viz, depth) in Cedar and Geneva? Is there anything to see in them? I have been looking for more dive spots in the area.

    Are there any other nice places to dive in the NE Illinois area (besides Lake Michigan)?

    The depth in Cedar Lake ranges from 5 to over 100 feet. Viz is dependent on the day and weather. Lake Geneva viz is pretty good for an inland lake and it's depth ranges also to over 100 feet. They are both pretty good dives for inland lakes!
