I know this is probably a lost cause but I've been trying to find clear water around Savannah. Tom Triplett Park has about three or 4 foot visibility but I was looking for something on the order of 6 foot or better. I'd like to try to make some underwater videos. I know about the springs in Florida, dove there several times but unless you stay over it makes for a long driving day. As I recall Gilligan's was about the same as Tom Triplett Park.
Many years ago I dove in a borrow pit not too far from Savannah but I can't remember where. It was crystal clear water about an acre in size and an all sandy bottom, 30-40 foot depth. It was the closest thing to a swimming pool, but very boring as a dive, just the sandy bottom a few plants and hardly any fish. But it would be great for an underwater submarine video.
There is a website that lists state parks in Georgia but doesn't really give specific water clarity information. I've even checked with the local dive shops but they either go offshore 15 to 20 miles out to get clear water or go to the springs in Florida. I dove in lakes elsewhere every bit as clear as the Florida Springs, but nothing that I know of around Savannah or even North Florida.
So does anybody know of any good spots with clear water other than a community pool? Well for that matter even a community pool if it would be feasible to film underwater without going through a lot of waivers and paperwork?
