Perch Lake

Perch Lake belongs to the City of Santa Rosa, NM park services and requires a permit from the city to dive. While “Blue Hole“ sees more divers due to its depth and great visibility, Perch Lake offers unique training and experience with the Limited Visibility, the ability to dive a wreck (plane) and more.

Ducks will occasionally be present in the fall and other water birds. Underwater you will come across catfish and others. Watch out for fishing lines around the plane wreck.
