Overview

We are a scuba diving resort in Athens, TN that is based around a ten acre quarry lake. Our crystal clear waters are home to the ancient and extraordinary paddlefish, among other aquatic wildlife. Since coming under new management in the summer of 2014, we have been hard at work improving both our on-site and online amenities.

This is a great local place to dive (under 3 drive from ATL) and the owners are genuinely concerned that everybody have a good time and are comfortable. If you need a tank refill, he comes down every so often to gather them and brings...More

My daughters both did their checkout dives here. Alex runs the place and is great about refilling tanks and helping w/ gear issues. Picnic tables on both sides of the ramp for your gear. Take a popup-canopy in case your table is on the right-hand...More

This is not a SCUBA review, but hopes it adds to the general character of how the place is run/being aware of guest needs. For the 2017 Eclipse, the toilets, cooling tent, ample parking, reasonable pricing, food stand (community organization), and staff check-in at the...More

The guy that owns this place is very courteous, even picks up, refills, and drops off tanks to the divers at the water's edge. New tables were installed last year, and they are upgrading all the time. This season is coming to a close so...More

There are several places to dive locally here in East Tennessee but for the facilities, area, and generally good visibility Loch Low Minn has it all. I'm an instructor and this is the only place I take my students and one of the few places...More
