Pearl Lake

Easy weekend dive trip

Where we are diving

For over 50 years Pearl Lake has been a destination for recreational scuba diving and diver training in the Midwest. Its 35 acres of clear water offers prolific and diverse aquatic life, multiple easy-access dive entry points, a dozen diver training platforms and a number of interesting dive sites including a school bus, a twin-engine airplane, a vintage steam shovel and over 15 sunken vessels including a 33 ft. yellow submarine, 30 ft. patrol boat and a 45 ft. Great Lakes fishing trawler. Located in South Beloit, IL at the Illinois/Wisconsin state line, Pearl Lake offers one of the finest diving and diver training environments in the country. From April to October certified divers come here to enjoy a relaxing day of diving in an undemanding but interesting and enjoyable environment.  The lake offers an ideal site for certified divers to sharpen their skills after a time out of the water and to be able to share a dive outing with family in Pearl Lake’s park-like atmosphere. AJ Koch is the trip leader.
