Mission, Vision, Values


We offer super fun & interesting wrecks. Where else will you find a 60' Hawker 600 Jet, three 30' sail boats, three cabin cruisers, a Lockheed C-140 Jet Star, Clint Eastwood's film crew's triple deck party barge and a DART bus to explore? Our warm spring fed water is the home to many more underwater attractions for you to discover.

We are consistently upgrading amenities to offer the most enjoyable and safest place to dive.

Calvin and Shannon Wilcher established Athens Scuba Park in 1986. As divers they understand the specific needs of a diving facility. This has given them the ability to build the park exactly as they wanted.

The spring-fed, warm water of Athens Scuba Park boasts an average visibility of 35' that can peak at 70'. The lake's depth is from 20 to 35 feet with the park facilities designed for maximum safety and enjoyment for divers.
