Tell me more about Bass Lake where we do our Open Water Dives

Bass Lake is a reclaimed & rehabilitated open-cast quarry that has flooded with fresh rain & groundwater that is filtered through the surrounding dolomite rock. Bass Lake offers a good training facility with all necessary facilities such as ablutions and an on-site coffee shop. ย 

Over the years enthusiastic divers have taken it upon themselves to sink their own wrecks for us to explore and some of the more interesting ones include an old school bus, a helicopter frame and the fuselage of a single-engined airplane. There are also a few bathtubs and toilets... weird.. but true...

There are camping facilities at Bass Lake and there are a number of guest houses & B&Bs in the Henley-on-Klip town for those that are keen for a weekend adventure. However, due to the close proximity to JHB we find most clients commute through each day.
