One of the most unique freshwater diving areas in America, Lake Mead National Recreation Area, which includes Lake Mead and Lake Mohave offer a wide variety of diving environments for both beginners and advanced divers.
There are several local dive sites available for training in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area with access by boat or car, like Kingman Wash, Boulder Beach, Wreck Alley, The Kraken, Agg Piles and many more. In Lake Mojave, we use Willow Beach, Placer Cove, Katherines Landing at Cabinsite Point and other sites along the river for a great variety. These waters offer many different species of fish, like Largemouth Black Bass, Channel Catfish, Striped Bass, Sunfish, Bluegill and Shad are common in the warmer months.
Seeing the bait balls of Bluegill, Tilapia or Shad swim in large schools is rather impressive and just some of the most commonly seen in Lake Mead and Lake Mojave also there are several fun man made sites to visit beneath the waves that are easily accessible to both beginner and advanced scuba divers.
