Lake Juliette is our local open water certification dive location. We can do a multitude of open water certification dives here. Lake Juliette is a Georgia Power lake. The lake is 3,600-acres and is maintained in cooperation with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. Lake Juliette offers a day-use area for boat launching, picnicking and swimming. Lake Juliette is strictly a fishing lake. Boats with engines greater than 25 horsepower are prohibited, as are water skiing, aquaplaning, and jet skis making it a very safe place for your training
. We use the Dames Ferry Recreational Area for our training. There is paved parking, multiple entry sites into the water, and restroom facilities on site. There is also a campground at Dames Ferry and offers 37 campsites for RV and tent camping, so, if you want to make your training a weekend retreat it is possible. For those of you that don't wish to stay the night Lake Juliette is only a short drive (1 Hour) from Covington. The area we train in has an average depth of 20-25 feet with a sandy bottom and visibility in the lake during the summer averages about 5-8 feet. There is not anything to see at the lake other than a passing fish every ounce in a while. This is a lake that just offers a convenient local option for us to do training. Before choosing this option, please be sure that you will be comfortable diving in a low viability environment.
