I wasn't sure how for "just south" of the boat ramp was, as there is shore access at the park that we've used there before in the winter. There's not much to see, mainly golf balls and crawdads. (oh, and beer cans)


The "wolf bay" wreck is on chart 18447. Its way way too far to swim from Magnusen. Its probably scooterable from Windermere Park but the gate (a people gate not just a car gate) makes that pretty impractable. How about getting your boat out to Discovery Bay for the Warhawk on Feb 13th?


Ok, gottcha. I may try and get the boat out into the lake this weekend, might try and do a shallow wreck or 2 as long as I'm at it.

Not sure about the 13th, I think I'm supposed to be out of town. I'll check with my travel coordinator.


jake you can always count me in for a lake dive. i wish there were more people into lake diving, then small charters on howies boat would be a easy fill.

Howie needs to advertise them better many do not hear about them that would go. That actually goes for all the charter companies. i love it in CA the CA Dive News prints a 2 month schedule for all the charter boats.

We scooted the Wolf Bay wreck today from Magnussen. Quite doable, about a 30 min run at speed 3 on a cuda. Found a couple of unmarked wrecks as well - a number of rock piles and large fish to boot. Great viz lately!
