Diving in Idaho

Explore diving in Idaho

With its high-altitude lakes, mountainous landscapes, spawning salmon and wrecks full of stories, diving in Idaho offers great diversity. Fisher Lake in Hagerman boast shallow clear waters with resident crayfish. If you are looking for a deeper dive, Lucky Peak has several areas from shore or docks to dive from. Crawfish, kokanee, rainbow trout and smallmouth bass live in the lake.

If you are up for a hike, Blue Lake in Bonner County is a hidden gem boasting great visibility and balmy underwater temperatures. In northern Idaho, two glacially formed lakes- Lake Pend Oreille and Lake Coeur d'Alene provide great ice diving in the winter and in fall is when the salmon appear in big numbers.

When to dive in Idaho

In summer months air temperatures range from 72°F/22°C to 36°F/2°C. Drysuits are highly recommended in the cooler months, but hardy divers can still enjoy the lake’s chilly waters in thick wetsuits.
