Diving in Lake Moreno

Diving excursions on Lake Moreno are a new alternative for visitors in Bariloche. The transparency of the water guarantees an incredible journey.

The service services are extended in Lake Moreno, integrated into an unparalleled landscape of the Nahuel Huapi National Park. In addition to being a favorite destination for windsurfingkayaking, the transparent waters of the lake invite you to enjoy another aquatic aspect. Diving is the new proposal to immerse yourself in the waters of the lake of glacial origin.



Diving Baptism


Baptism dives are increasingly in demand in the lakes of Bariloche. In particular, in Lake Moreno, diving is a different way to enjoy the landscapes, this time under the surface of the water and submerging up to about 89 meters deep.


The activity is promoted in Bariloche as a more innovative option to appreciate the meltwater and discover the sensations and experience of diving for the first time. The mountain lakes present a considerable depression already very close to the coast, so that the guides begin by driving the dive shallow, on the shores, and then, with a few steps the participants can already dive. As in this type of excursions, the activity begins with a technical talk to know the equipment and the basic signals to communicate.



Those who arrive in Bariloche can already get excited about the idea of immersion in the lake, even more so if they have never done so. Lake Moreno is one of the places chosen in Patagonia for recreational diving, framed by the scenic silhouettes of Cerro López and Cerro Goye on the south side and the Llao Llao and Campanario hills on the north side. Depending on the weather conditions, the provider Ardilla Buceo takes its users through different corners to diversify the lake options of this walk and its own characteristics, such as the island of the Rabbits, the beach Without Wind, the wall Cachetethe rock of the Seagulls.



By the way, the low concentrations of organic compounds that characterize Lake Moreno allow light to penetrate and be reflected in a high transparency in these meltwaters that come from the Casa de Piedra, Goye and De la Virgen streams, even exceeding 20 m deep. This phenomenon favors diving to enjoy the underwater landscapes of walls and rocky massifs, even to observe some fish fauna.



It is an activity for all audiences, over 8 years old. The service includes the provision of 7 mm wet suits prepared for cold water dives that are complemented by gloves, hoods and boots. With these suits, underwater activity is very comfortable despite the cold water temperatures, although more temperate than those of other lakes in the region. In addition to the proposal of immersion baptisms, Ardilla Buceo offers courses for all levels and specific workshops.
