Lake Tahoe is cold water diving. It can be completed in the same wetsuit as one would dive in Monterey. Drysuits are also popular. Surface temps can be up to 75° in the summer, but don't let that fool you. Lake Tahoe has incredible thermoclines. At depth the water will be easily as cold as Monterey, or colder.

Divers must arrive no later than Thursday afternoon for Friday diving in order to acclimate to altitude.
Since there is no way out of Lake Tahoe without crossing a pass, divers must wait a minimum of 6 hours after diving before leaving the Tahoe basin.
