Aquarena Center At Spring Lake



Submitted By:

Submitter Comments:
To dive in Spring Lake at Aquarena Springs you have to take a special certification class as a scientific diver. The lake is the habitat of 5 endangered species as well as home to archeological digs uncovering history from 10,000+ years ago. Visibility is as good as the Caribbean. Once you are certified you get to come back and do work dives for free. There are no purely recreational dives as it is an endangered habitat. Here's the website

 From Austin, go south on I-35 to San Marcos, take Exit 206, Aquarena Springs Drive, turn right and go through 2 stop lights; immediately after rail road tracks see entrance and sign to Aquarena Center on right side of the road, take a right into golf course, follow the road to the left to the park entrance. From San Antonio, take I-35 North to San Marcos, take exit 206, Aquarena Springs Drive, go left under I-35 and through 3 stop lights; immediately after railroad tracks on right side of the road, see entrance and sign to Aquarena Center, turn right into golf course follow the road to the left to the park entrance. The San Marcos River can be accessed from the town without having to go to Aquarena Center
