I know that it is allowed because I have done it several times and I have talked to a dive shop in Columbia about it.  I am actually trying to find out how to locate a submerged bridge in Lake Murray that should be a great dive site.  It is a huge steel structure that is about 60-80 feet tall and maybe a couple hundred feet long in about 150 feet of water.  I've heard that it is marked with a bouy, but I haven't tried to find it myself.  If anyone can verify that there is a bouy and tell me where to find it I would appreciate it.  Thanks.

Is there shore diving or do you have to rent a boat?

Been diving lake murray since 4-07 never had a problem the worst danger is the boaters unawareness of what a dive flag means.
You can walk in at the lexington side of the damn at a swimming area , but a boat will get you access to better things.The brigde bouy is still there but has some prop damage (2-17-09) its between goat island and bomb (lunch) island. I am presently attaching  bouys to other things of intrest  as the season allows. check out Lake Murray Diving on facebook for info.
