Independence Day


This Independence Day, Loch Low-Minn is making a long weekend of it!

For the Fourth of July, we're going to be open for four days.
Come by during regular business hours on Saturday and Sunday, and then keep the diving party going on Monday (3rd) and Tuesday (4th). During the two extra days, doors will be open from 9AM to 3PM, and divers are welcome to stay and make the most of their visit until 6PM.

If you need to arrive after doors close on the extra days or want to schedule an evening or overnight dive at any time, give us a call in advance, and we'll work with you to arrange some fun and exciting after hours diving.

Long Independence Day Weekend

Also, this Thursday (June 29th) only, Loch Low-Minn will be open a partial day from 11AM to 6PM. Take a day off and enjoy the water. If you call in sick, the paddlefish promise not to tell.


Opening Day Weekend

and Mother's Day

Get excited - there's just a few days left until Loch Low-Minn's 2017 opening weekend, starting on Saturday, May 13th!

But don't forget, Sunday is Mother's Day, and you don't want to be neglecting your mama while you go diving. Instead, treat her to a sunny day out at the loch and start the season off right. We welcome you both, and we'll take $5 off the entry fee for any diver who brings their mom to celebrate the day together at Loch Low-Minn. Diving moms get the discount, too, and non-diving moms can come watch for free. The water is warm and the weather promises to be wonderful. Invite your mom, show off your diving skills, and make a day of it.

We look forward to seeing you!

Mother's Day

All divers must have a valid diving certification, even if your mom says you're a pro. Portable grills are welcome as long as they are supervised.
Come enjoy the day, and contact us if you have any questions.
