Dutch Springs - Bethlehem PA

Located in the beautiful Lehigh Valley, Dutch Springs is a little more adventure... A little more extreme... above and below the surface! Besides scuba diving, there is an aqua park, you can go camping, and climb their rock wall and ropes course.

Cburgert - 1 day 14 hours ago.
Just a few short weeks until opening day.

My friends and I dive a lake in Randolph, NJ when ocean viz is crap and we hit 31° deeper than 40 feet. This weekend was the Dutch instructor weekend?

I know some people that dove here today. Water temperature is 35. A little cold even with a drysuit.

A well established quarry for SCUBA divers!
Cburgert - 2/10/2017 1:38 PM
The first day I go I’ll be trying out new equipment. Hopefully a Hydros pro and Nova Fins.
ScubaSteve321 - 2/10/2017 3:44 PM
Hey, I just picked up a hydros pro too. Can’t wait to try it out as soon as the water is warm enough for a semi-dry
Cburgert - 2/11/2017 8:17 PM
I just did my taexes and im getting enough back for my equipment. What do you think of the Hydros pro so far? Even though you havent tried it out in the water, im just curious since I have been wanting one since last year.
ScubaSteve321 - 2/11/2017 8:19 PM
Haven’t tried it in the water yet but it seems pretty top notch in terms of quality and fit. Super comfortable and impressively light weight. Plus it comes with a cool bag to carry your whole kit in.
LarryMill - 2/10/2017 6:12 AM
April 8th is the opening day.
Erik_F - 2/07/2017 7:24 AM
I have no idea what the water in Arizona is like, but Dutch in June will probably be in the high 40s to low 50s below 30 feet. If you don’t have one, you can rent a 7mm wetsuit, gloves and hood. Mostly everything is within 60 feet deep with a few exceptions. You have plenty of time, but figure out what you want to see the most.
ScubaGammy - 2/07/2017 5:38 PM
Thanks for the info! AZ in June, the water temps are 70-80. I dive a 1mm but I will bring the 5mm, boots and gloves. I can sweat underwater! I will bring my dive light and camera so I can see it all if possible.
ScubaGammy - 2/06/2017 6:38 PM
I am flying in from Arizona on June 8, 2017 and would love to dive at Dutch Springs on June 11th!
I will bring my own gear, just need tanks and weights, one tank can last me about an hour.
I am a rescue diver with over 100 dives, max depth right now is 117’
Please let me know if I can meet ya’ll at DS so I can ditch the family for a day!
Erik_F - 2/06/2017 7:10 PM
It’s a bit early for me to commit 100%, but I can more than likely meet you there. A Saturday would be best as we can get 3 day dives and a night dive and see the majority of the lake.
ScubaGammy - 2/06/2017 11:09 PM
Well that sounds like fun and I do have my night diver certification, so will change it to Saturday instead of Sunday. Thanks!
LarryMill - 2/07/2017 7:03 AM
Leave me know when it gets closer to the time. I am up almost every weekend. I am a rescue Diver also.
Cburgert - 2/04/2017 2:49 PM
Jeez, 39,℉ is a little too cold.
Cburgert - 2/01/2017 10:17 AM
Anyone know when Dutch opens for the 2017 season? Also looking for a dive buddy for this season at Dutch I’m getting new equipment I need to test out.
LarryMill - 2/01/2017 6:54 PM
I think April they open. If you are looking for a buddy ever leave me know. I go almost every weekend. I am a rescue Diver.
LarryMill - 2/01/2017 7:38 PM
I emailed them they do not have a date yet.
Cburgert - 2/02/2017 12:05 PM
I meesaged them on Facebook, and they said the same thing to me. Yeah, maybe the second or third week after they open. I always hear it’s elbow to elbow the first couple weeks after they open.
Erik_F - 2/02/2017 12:11 PM
Usually, they open the weekend after Easter, but Easter is a little bit deeper than usual I think. The first weekend or two is usually empty. Last year, the water was 39 degrees on opening weekend.

I might be diving there on 9/17 doing a refresher for a friend. Doing 3-4 dives (including night) if I go. You’re more than welcome to join us. I’ll confirm on Thursday with you if I’m definitely going or not.
