The 'Get Wet' Club!


288 Lake Scuba and Sport Training Facility (formerly Tiki Lake or the Reef)

4800 Schurmier Rd
Houston, TX 77048  

About a 15-minute drive south of downtown Houston, 288 Lake is Houston’s premiere freshwater sports training facility. The pristine lake provides the perfect open water experience. The spring fed water is naturally filtered by having travelled through many miles of sandstone and sand layers. Visibility can range from 4-25 feet. A healthy ecological environment helps to provide the balance in nature of aquatic plants and animals. Individuals and groups of up to 200 can come to train or simply enjoy the lush surroundings of the serene 20 acre facility. 288 Lake is breathtakingly beautiful, surprisingly affordable and conveniently located.
