Lake & River Tours, Scuba Dives

Beaver Lake is nestled high in the Ozark Mountains of northwest Arkansas, guarded by limestone bluffs and with almost 500 miles of shoreline. Created by the flooding of mountain valleys, the lake is exceptionally beautiful and dotted with islands - which are the mountain tops!

One of the cleanest and clearest lakes in the South, Beaver Lake draws scuba divers from around the country. They marvel at the variety and size of fish in the lake, and have the opportunity to explore old home sites, sunken boats and submerged timber. Let’s hear it for “wet and beautiful” in Eureka Springs West!

But if you’d rather stay dry, then take a lake excursion with an excellent narration that will explain local fauna and the history of Beaver Lake. This is also perfect for groups, seniors, and nature-lovers. There are even special eagle-watch cruises.

Another exciting tour can be created just for you. Personalized for either Beaver Lake or the White River, this private expedition can take you along towering cliffs, under the White River Bridge and into Tablerock Lake. What a special opportunity for an adventure tailored to your own desires!

If your preference is to explore the water on your own, check the “Boat and Canoe Rental” page under the “Lake and River Fun” menu.
