Laurie, I like to go to Pearl Lake, which is just over the Illinois border (South Beloit area I think it is). They charge 20 bucks to dive there, but it's well worth it. It's a private lake, and they have lots of stuff for divers to see under water...a bus, stepvan, statues, a few boats, airplane, a small submarine, etc.

I am a person of infinite possibilities and dreams.

Forgive your enemies. It messes up their heads.

We have not dove in Lake Geneva. They are not diver-friendly there. emoticon Have a great day!

Welcome to the group! I'm making my first trip to your state next month...Lake Geneva. No diving planned for up in the cold country waters; I'm a warm water mammal. I think it comes from living in the desert for so many years...

Burke is broken up in pieces within Madison-Sun Prairie area. I am about 1/2 miles from Madison :) I have lived here for 25 years, husband for about 14. Most of our diving is local. Devil's Lake, we had an underwater wedding there. Redgranite Quarry is our other fav haunt. Lake Wazee at Black River Falls for deep diving. have not been there for years though, it is easily a $75 dollar day between gas/admission and maybe food. With DH unemployed and I just becoming employed (not good pay) again this week, there is nothing much extra for diving. At least we have our own gear so that helps. Together we are drysuit, deep, nitrox, and equipment specialist certified. Just myself I also took the Research Diver course, also a Master Scuba Diver as well as a Divemaster. Divers are fun folks!

Welcome to our site, Laurie! I'm not sure where Burke is (I suppose I could look on a map) but I'm from Waukesha, how far are you from here? Do you do any local dives, or just in warm salt water???

Good morning divers,
I did a search of groups and was happy to find a group of divers like me. I am Laurie from Burke, WI and my husband I are both divers. I have 404 dives under my weight belt emoticon and earned my Divemaster cert in 2001. We don't dive as much as we used to due to money and time restraints but still love this sport the most. It's how we met. We both earned our OW in 1997, different shops. We met a month after he got certified. We had our first dive together July 26, 1997. We fell in love and married July 24, 1999. We bicycle more than dive now (have a tandem) and will celebrate our 10th this summer. I look forward to getting to know all of you. Have a great day!
