  • Great place to dive for Houston. The water is relatively clear and the staff do a great job of keeping the place tidy. Definitely worth camping if you're going for the weekend. Not sure if I'd recomme...  more »
  • If you go to the Blue Lagoon and take a class make sure you ask for Brian Avenarius. This guy will not only give you the skills to become a great diver but give you a huge smile to go along with them....  more »

  • The staff is awesome and the dives are great until all the swimmers get there. I know they have to make money but wish they'd cut back on the swimmers. They stir up all the silt. All and all beautiful park and great place to blow some bubbles for a day trip. Depths to about 25 ft. Have sunken items to explore. Visibility pretty good on a slow day or early. Limestone quarry that doesn't support aquatic life. May see a few tadpoles at the bottom. We love it.
  • Awesome facility awesome staff. Now to all the non divers leaving bad reviews. I'm a diver and I will explain the process with blue lagoon as it is a diving facility. If you are not a diver or with diver you will not be given priority and required to wait. Most of the time they give non divers sites that is hard for divers to enter into the water from. If you do not show up early enough you should not be mad at Blue lagoon but your self as those who are at the front of the line have priority. So if your at the back of the line you will most likely be turned away. They use swimmer only as a way to fill all the spots when there are not enough divers to do so. If the whole facility is full of divers then you will not be able to enter. Next a lot of the time when swimmer come in to blue lagoon facility. They do not pick up after them selves, they leave litter, throw beer bottles and beer cans in the water, and throw rocks and large stones in the water. Why are the stones and rocks a problem, is there could be a diver below. Some divers could be using a rebreather which do not exhale air like a regular scuba equipment which makes it harder to tell if there is a diver below. When litter and messes are left behind the divers and blue lagoon staff are left to clean up after those who do not wish to respect what we have here as an awesome place to swim and dive. And those who wish to throw the race card out there out of disrespect. The blue lagoon staff are not racist. Plenty of people of ethnic background come through their facility. To throw the race card out there is disrespectful and shallow. If you were nicer in your communication with the blue lagoon staff they will extend that same courtesy of respect back to you. I am in no way associated with blue lagoon. I am a diver but I also have a friend that is a swimmer that come to blue lagoon to swim. Let's keep this awesome facility clean and be respectful in our communication. And take responsibility for being late or on time to ensure you have a chance as entering as a swimmer.
  • The water is alright but the staff is racist. If you notice priority is given to Anglos, there were non divers there waiting since 5AM and they kept waiting past 9AM. If you're Hispanic don't expect to get one of the good cites. The last time my family and I came we were given a spot at the very end of the lagoon. We had to ask for a better place, the day we went there were only a few people there. The place is basically a big pool. They have porta pottys not real restrooms. This place is truly overpriced for the service given to non divers. Also non divers pay more than diver and are still not treated as equalls. Horrible place never going there again.
  • It's nothing fancy but its better than nothing. The water has a ph of 3.6 which is more acidic than a bottle of coke. Explains why there's nearly no wildlife in it.
  • Let's get one thing straight, this is NOT a natural resource, it used to be a quarry, the pH levels are what keep the water so clear (lack of algae/animals.) This is a PADI dive facility FIRST, and my favorite in the area. Great place to get your dive fix. I only wish they would turn away all swimmers and parties with their alcoholic beverages and trash. it should be divers ONLY.
