If you’re a seasoned diver, chances are you’ve already started planning your upcoming dives for Missouri. If not, Bonne Terre Mine is highly regarded as one of the best adventures in the United States with one of the largest man-made caverns. Its underwater pillars, shafts, archways, walls and ceilings stretch for miles in all directions, a sprawling maze beneath the town.
Beaver Lake Scuba Park is an underwater playground for all. Sunken boats, an airplane and even a pirate ship are here as well as the local’s residents: crappie, longear sunfish, catfish and walleye.
The best time to go diving in the lakes in Missouri is between April- October.
We highly recommend divers interested in the Bonne Terre Mine dive to contact local operators for up to date information on certification levels needed for this dive.
