What is the best time to dive for pearls on the Tennessee River? Shell and pearl diver Bruce reminds us that the best time to dive is dependent on many factors. First, of course, has to do with overall weather conditions. There are tides and visibility to take into consideration and in rainy months the high water flows effect both of those factors.
Barometric pressure is normally higher in the summer months and Bruce, and other divers, believe this affects the movement and access of the mussels. To get the full explanation of the best time to dive for pearls on the Tennessee River, see our video below!
