Zandmeren Steenfabriek is indirectly connected to the river, the Waal. This has many advantages. You get to see all the species that live in the Waal, without the strong current and poor visibility. Zandmeren Steenfabriek is located in a quiet area where not many people come.

Particulars

On the northwest side (to the right of the entrance) the dive site is in connection with another lake. Here big predators are waiting for an easy prey. The trees on the northeast side of the entrance (left) become partially or totally flooded at high water, This area attracts a lot of fish in search of larvae, beetles and other insects.

Warnings

The site becomes part of the river at high water, making diving impossible. Close the gate that provides access to the dive site thoroughly to prevent livestock to escape.
