Comments  
West Lake Okoboji is a "blue water" in northwest Iowa. It is a
far cry from diving in the Caribbean, but for land locked Iowa, it is as
good as it gets. There have been articles written about this lake in Scuba
Diving magazine. There are dive services on the lake if you care to use
them. You can shore dive or you can dive off private boats. Maximum depth
is 120 feet but not much to see there. Thermocline at about 20 feet. There
are some structures (pipelines) in the lake that attract fish, but you have
to know where to fine them (check with the local dive store). Fish can be
abundant and large (15-20 pounds). When your in Iowa and you just
"have to get wet" this is a good place to dive.
