Points of entering to the lake (see map)

Płotki lake has a well-prepared diving infrastructure. The local Deep Diver base is located just 15 m from the water table and bridge. Thanks to this, in the winter, after a while, we will find ourselves in a heated room near the fireplace. By using the services of the base, you will prepare on the stands at the base and go to the water. Your non-diving companions will have the opportunity to observe your immersion from the jetty. Often the visibility here is so good that it will look you down even to the dinosaurs.

Underwater attractions

This dive site hides 4 sunken dinosaurs 4 - 6 m, two 5 m platforms, a Mercedes wreck, a boat and several smaller attractions. The story of a drowned white lady was also heard here. If you are not afraid, ask your local guide about her.
