CliMissouri is one of the mid-west states bordered by 8 different states, which are Arkansas, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Tennessee. The state capital is Jefferson City, although the most populated city is Kansas City. Geographically, one of the most important features is the confluence of the 3 greatest rivers in North America, with the Mississippi and Missouri joining in St Louis and the Ohio River meeting the Mississippi.

The climate of Missouri is continental with an average of 50f/10c in the north of the state and 60f/15c in the south of the state. January temperatures in St. Louis are 29f/-2c and for July, the temperatures are 80f/27c. The annual rainfall is approximately 40 inches.

The main and most well known dive location in Missouri is the Bonne Terre Mine, which is a national historic site and is also the largest fresh water dive resort in the world. Visibility is an amazing 100 feet and the water temperature remains a constant 58f/14c. There are 24 dive routes and on your dives, you are accompanied by a dive guide to a maximum depth of 40/60 feet. Another location is The Blue Water Lake at Oronogo with visibility of 20/40 feet.
