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.

Looking for a buddy for this Saturday, July 14th. Is anyone coming? No specific plans, will join any adventure within OW limit.
-JD- - 6 days 16 hours ago.
I’m planning on being there for the SDI/TDI Demo event ( also on the Dutch events page.) Since I don’t know exactly what they have to actually try and how it will be run/scheduled, I don’t really know how free I’ll be to do general diving. If you are interested in the event I’m sure a demo-buddy would be good - you should sign up online ad do the waivers in advance.

I"m flying solo and will be camping out all weekend, also trying to jump on any adventure.

Was nice to meet you all, guys. Sorry, I wasn’t able to join you on Saturday. My last demo dive had been finished around 2:30pm, you were on a dive and I had no chance to stay much longer. Hope to dive with you next time. Ashley, I’ll send you the information about girls’ dive event in private message.

Hi, Folks. Newbie here.

Is anybody looking for a buddy Monday 7/2 or Tue 7/3?

I did AOW in the fall there and will be doing Rescue in a few weeks and need to do some tune/tweak/kit-checkout diving before. Beyond that, I’m amenable to pretty much anything. I’ve been out of the water since the fall - my spring break dives in the keys got blown out. :-(

Got certified at Dutch Springs this year. Visibility was good, 30 to 40 feet. Temperature was 50F at 55 feet or so. Everything was convenient to use. It makes a great place to just dive and practice.
