Bull Shoals Houseboat Weekend
October 6-9, 2017

>> Download Flier Here <<

Come join us as we load up two houseboats (one 60' and one 50') for a weekend of diving on Bull Shoals Lake in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas, near the White River.

Located just across the state line in Arkansas, Bull Shoals is a great place to dive. The water is clear and can range from 90-60 degrees at depth. If you're lucky, you might spy one of the rare blue catfish.

Scuba divers come to Bull Shoals from across the country to enjoy the clear blue water. This is a Corps of Engineers lake downriver from Table Rock Lake and Lake Taneycomo in Missouri.

Dive sites from 20'-85' include a variety of sunken boats, including a destroyer escort, and a troop transport, a bus, the "Iowa Farm" with a combine and tractor, and many other smaller boats and equipment. Wall dives can be made along one side of the lake. There are also several swim throughs from 30' to 80'. See dive site map here.

In addition to the fun of spending a weekend away from it all, you can get certified during the trip. We can complete training dives for Open Water, Advanced Open Water or various specialties. Contact Y-kiki for full details and options.

Spearfishers are welcome!
