Snail Roundup

 July 8, 2023


Local Dive Adventure: Whitfish Lake, Gordon Wisconsin (approximately 2.5 hr drive from the Twin Cities)
Instructors / Hosts: Mary and Brett Nelson

Join Scuba Center instructors Mary and Brett Nelson for a fun dive to collect the evasive Chinese Snails.

The dive will be held on July 8th starting at 10am at Whitefish Lake near Gorden WI (approximately 2.5 hours from the Twin Cities).

We will be conducting dives to find and remove these snails which are polluting the lake. All levels of dive experience are welcome. The average visibility is 20-30 feet and water temperature is above 65 degrees. Since the snails are concentrated nearer the shore, the depth of the dives will be between 8 and 22 feet. Non divers are also welcome as snorkeling for the snails is also an option.

Divers and non divers will need to bring all equipment needed for a dive or snorkel. Nets and surface markers will be provided by Brett and Mary. Lunch will also be provided. The $10 fee includes lunch.

A detailed map and further instructions will be sent out to those who register.
