Diving in Germany - brrrrr - 16 December 07 - 16:44

Today Klaus and I drove down to the Steinbergersee for Adventstauchen. Unfortunately we were the only ones of our diving club to go diving, but at least we went :-) It was a beautiful cold day with air temperature of minus 2 degrees Celsius (about 28 degrees Fahrenheit) and the water was a nice 5 degrees. We went down nice and slowly along side the Rutsche until we reached the bottom platform around 30 meters. A bit further (at 38 meters) we turned left and continues at 270 degrees towards the Pumpenhaus.

Amazingly we say 2 fish around 25 meters, at this depth we have never seen fish before in the Steinbergersee ! Also there was a lot of green there, so this is good news for the lake as it is a clear indicator that it is getting better every year.

Just to compare, the dive before and this dive. A nice 24 degrees temperature difference!
