You can schedule various dives in Switzerland. From the 10m deep pond to bottomless cliffs into Lake Geneva at + 100m.

In winter, the water is crystal clear but very cold, 6 ° on average and become “blurred” with

the warming in spring. During summer the visibility of first few meters can drop up to 10cm

where the water rarely exceeds 20 °C.

The fauna is relatively small ... perch, pike, crayfish, tench for the major.

The dives are often led in a lunar atmosphere ... beautiful shades of green on the descent ... and total darkness at 30/40m; always bring a torch. A good compass navigation may also be very useful with a visibility almost nil.
