Submitter Comments:
The beach area is marked off to keep out boat traffic, and while Scuba is allowed in the swim area, Viz is much better outside the swim area. Bring a float to warn boat traffic. The depth outside the swim area is about 15-20 feet, and there is a gradual slope that continues down into the abyss. There is a rocky area along the north side of the bay, along with some petrified trees. Not many fish, but a few crawdads in the area. Temperatures are low, but during summer a thick wetsuit is enough. Visibility typically over 30 feet. It's a common training site because of the ideal conditions. There is a wreck in the bay, but it is located close to the boat lanes.

Directions:
 Meek's Bay is located north of Emerald bay on the west side of Lake Tahoe. The dive site is located inside a park/campground called Meek's Bay. It's about a 45 minute drive from the south lake area.

09/03/2010 Nick Copeland (Avg: 3.67 Review) - Meeks Bay (I think) is the second best dive site in Tahoe. Great vis, great beach, great facilities, great campground. This site is interesting in shallow or deep water. Huge schools of minnows, lots of crawdad and rocky reefs.
