Scubs diving in Kansas
Kansas is one of the mid-western states and famous for its wheat production and sunflowers. The state capital is Topeka, but the most populated city is Witchita.

Kansas has a continental climate and is extremely variable from the north to the south. The temperatures for Topeka in the coldest month of January are 37f/17f (3c/-8c) and for July 89f/68f (32c/20c).

Had a problem in finding dive sites in Kansas, so if anyone out there would like to contribute with some information that would be great. Divers from Kansas do travel to Beaver Lake in Arkansas where you can get air fills at Lost Bridge Marina. The lake is 300 feet deep in places and numerous objects have been placed to dive to, such as boats, cars and statues, but the most popular spot is The Old Foundation, which was a holiday resort from the 1800s and way back then, it boasted as having the two largest hotels in the world. Today, all that remains are the foundations, plus there are some large bridges and an amphitheatre.
