Diving

Lake Bled offers nice conditions for diving. The average annual temperature of the lake is 12 °C, whilst its July temperature usually reaches 25 °C. After many years of pollution, the water of the lake cleared out after the successful sanitation and now hosts 18 different fish species as well as crayfish and shell-fish which are not a rarity anymore. The visibility of the lake is inconstant, whilst the richness of life changes according to seasons. Like all other lakes, the bottom of the Lake Bled is muddy, whilst its banks are rockier. Besides the fish species, Lake Bled is also rich with water plants, like white and red lotus and numerous different algae and reeds. The coastal aquatorium of the lake represents a true challenge for underwater photographers as fish stay mainly in this part of the lake. The nice entry point is the Bled rowing centre where the terrain is appropriate for a mini training dive.
