Keuka Lake

Keuka Lake is one of the Finger Lakes of New York. There’s always something to be found at the bottom of the Finger Lakes from 18th-century glass bottles to old jewelry and even old fossils. Visibility is best in the spring and fall but the water is pretty chilly so bring a thick wetsuit!

You’ll see your typical lake wildlife like trout, carp, catfish, and some bass. But keep your eye out for small treasure, that’s what diving these lakes is all about.
