Crater Lake is best for scuba diving as you can explore lava formation, underwater moss meadows and wildlife in crystal clear shallows or the bottom of a flooded volcano with the help of deep-sea submersible.

Anyone heard of the "Old Man of the Lake", a full-sized tree which is now a stump that has been bobbing vertically in the lake for more than a century? Nathan75
