Terrell Travel Guide
With the economy in the toilet, you might not have the funds to head out on once in a lifetime diving trip, and with that Swine Flu constantly lurking around every corner the only safe place is under the sea. Thatís why weíve compiled some strange SCUBA spots right here at home. If youíve got a better one (or a worse one), please let us know!
Close encounters with the sharp teeth of sharks or eels may put a damper on a tropical dive, which is the perfect reason for the more finicky to look for a diving spot a little more inland. As far as we know, thereís no sharks within the Clear Spring Scuba Park in Terrel, Texas. However, we just pray to the diving gods that no alligators or crocs have been illegally dumped in by locals trying to keep them as pets.
True to its name, the lakeís visibility is at least 20 feet this week, so youíll have no problem investigating below the surface. Under the surface you'll find all kinds of bass, sunfish, catfish, and turtles. It kind of looks like youíre diving at the local pet store, but please remember that itís not, and donít bring home any fish in little water-filled baggies. There's even a wreck to swim through: the SS Minnow, though not of Gilligan's Island fame.
