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.

Is anybody going on Sat 10/20?
Erik_F - 3 days 8 hours ago.
I might be. I will know in the next day or two.
kayakingphotos - 26 days 7 hours ago.
I’m looking for buddies for Columbus Day Weekend. I’ll be diving from Friday the 5th through about mid-day on Monday the 8th or so.

I’ve been to Dutch numerous times so I’m pretty familiar with many of the things to see.

IronRanger - 26 days 6 hours ago.
Hope to see you there and finally get to dive with you.
DrakeH - 19 days 7 hours ago.
Hey Patrick. I’m planning on going to Dutch Springs Saturday, Oct 6th for a few dives. I’ve been there several times as well and it would be great to buddy up with you and any others. What time are you planning on going?
KelvinBatista - 18 days 17 hours ago.
I am planning to dive on Sunday. I’ll keep in contact with you guys via text. 347-307-7250
kayakingphotos - 18 days 10 hours ago.
Sounds like we will have a crew for Friday through Sunday. I plan on camping there Friday and Saturday nights, so I’ll be ready to go first thing in the mornings. I should be there before noon on Friday
DrakeH - 17 days 19 hours ago.
Where do you guys plan to meet? I plan to be to be there early Saturday.
kayakingphotos - 17 days 11 hours ago.
IronRanger usually camps at the top of the hill above the peninsula side. I’m not sure where I’ll be camping. Hopefully some quiet location.
JoeWR - 15 days 17 hours ago.
Hi, Patrick. I’ll see you guys there on Friday.
kayakingphotos - 14 days 9 hours ago.
DrakeH, I have a commitment to provide services as a tour guide this weekend. I sent you a PM with my number in it. You can also try ironranger, he has his number listed in a message a couple months back down below.
KelvinBatista - 27 days 10 hours ago.
Sounds good. I should be there at 9. When the first person gets there, send everyone else a text.

KelvinBatista - 27 days 2 hours ago.
Not making it tomorrow guys. Sorry
KelvinBatista - 27 days 18 hours ago.
Will anyone be at Dutch tomorrow Sunday 9/23?
JoeWR - 27 days 12 hours ago.
Hi, Kelvin. I’ll be there at opening with some guys if you want to join us. Joe G.
TedG - 9/11/2018 5:20 PM
Looks like the weather forecast is improving this weekend. Is anyone planning on diving? Need a Buddy? I haven’t decided yet, but I’m thinking about heading up for the weekend.
JoeWR - 9/11/2018 10:15 PM
Hi, Ted. I hope to be there this weekend, but I may have some divemaster duties that would interfere with fun dives. I’ll let you know for sure as we approach the weekend.
raygun - 9/13/2018 7:09 PM
I am planning on going there on Sunday the 16th and will be looking for a buddy
TedG - 9/13/2018 7:39 PM
I’ll be there Saturday and Sunday ready to gear up about 9:00 or so. My schedule is totally free both days. I’ll be hanging out with WestShore scuba under a tan 12x12 popup - typically the far left side of the peninsula against the fence.
raygun - 9/13/2018 7:56 PM
Thanks, Ted. I will look for you there. I can’t say what time I will be there, but I would think around 11, if that does not present any problems for you.
TedG - 9/13/2018 8:03 PM
Not at all. There are a few others coming, so I might jump in the water early and catch you for a second dive if you still need a buddy. I’m at 717-860-2745 feel free to TX me. If I’m under water, I’ll respond as soon as I surface.
jstorm - 9/13/2018 9:17 PM
Wreck diving washed out for the weekend, so head to Dutch on Sunday. Open for anything as long as it’s a valid plan. If you are still looking for someone, let me know.
AndreiE - 9/07/2018 7:21 AM
Anybody’s diving tomorrow?
AndreiE - 9/08/2018 7:59 PM
Well, I’ll reply to myself... Visibility was abysmal near Cessna and Firetruck, 2-3ft top. But it gets better as you go deeper. E.g. near school bus it was probably 20ft, and near Comet easily 40ft.
JohnDiver123 - 9/08/2018 10:47 PM
Pretty typical this time of year but it should improve now they colder temps are here. Diving Friday 9/14 if you want to join.

Joe Kickstand may be there Friday as well. John, how did you do the double post 8 hours apart? Oh, I’ll be there also.
Erik_F - 9/09/2018 10:29 AM
I was the Friday on the student side. We had about 5ft viz. Platform, fire truck, diamond reef, van and everything in between. Went to round valley yesterday for clearer water.
IronRanger - 9/09/2018 11:51 AM
Hi Eric, Next year I’m going to enlist you to show me Round Valley. Plus, I need to study how you move through the water so smoothly...worth emulating
Erik_F - 9/09/2018 12:08 PM
RV is still open until the end of October. I’ll probably be there next weekend. You can see some of the foundations there if you like.
JohnDiver123 - 9/09/2018 12:28 PM
Had some back button issues which caused the double post!
JoeWR - 9/11/2018 9:06 PM
Hope to see you guys there Friday.
akf - 8/29/2018 10:52 AM
Where’s the Labor Day Weekend crew at? Anyone camping out and staying the whole 3 day?
TedG - 8/29/2018 11:34 AM
I’ll be there Saturday and Sunday - I might stay over Sunday night. Will be training, but happy to do some additional dives - especially night dives.
JoeWR - 8/29/2018 11:44 AM
I’ll be there with my shop all weekend. We should be doing a night dive on Saturday.
IronRanger - 8/29/2018 12:52 PM
Camping Friday to Monday
Jack18 - 8/31/2018 12:05 PM
Are you guys driving early Sunday morning? Me and my brother-in-law will be there at 8 AM. Probably in the water by nine. I need someone that knows the quarry really well. I don’t know it well enough to do the guide.
gefilteefish - 8/27/2018 7:51 AM
I went scuba diving here on 8/26/2018. Average viz: 5-10ft/2-3m. Water temp: 56-60°F/13-16°C.
KelvinBatista - 8/25/2018 5:44 PM
Is anyone available to dive tomorrow, Sunday August 26th? If so text me @ 347-307-7250. Thanks
TedG - 8/23/2018 8:04 PM
I’ll be there on the 1st and 2nd training for Rescue Diver. I’m definitely in for a night dive on the 1st and probably the 2nd. Hopefully a few fun dives. I’m not sure what my schedule will look like yet, but I’m happy to buddy-up as time permits.
HenryFDrake - 8/22/2018 3:59 PM
Looking for a Buddy to dive Dutch Springs. I’ll be camping there Labour day weekend.

IronRanger - 8/18/2018 1:49 PM

evilcorvette - 8/18/2018 7:40 PM
Thats awesome guys, thanks so much. Is ther elike a super secret handshake we should use to identify ourselves?
evilcorvette - 8/18/2018 7:49 PM

IronRanger - 8/19/2018 7:05 AM
Scott, super secret handshake AND magic hat issued after dive #5
IronRanger - 8/20/2018 8:25 PM
Hi Guys, Expect to be at Dutch Friday (8/24) by 10am and leave Sunday afternoon. Camping Peninsula side. Once I leave home I won’t be checking the forum so you (or anyone else that wants to dive) can txt me at 856-313-4965.
laurenperez16 - 8/15/2018 12:50 PM
Looking for a buddy for 8/25 for a few dives. I’m an OW diver and I tried to do my advanced at Dutch, but struggled and didn’t complete it between anxiety being in murky water for the first time and my ear just not working out well that weekend. If anyone doesn’t mind diving with a new-to-NE waters OW diver, I’d live to link up with someone or a group. :)
IronRanger - 8/15/2018 6:22 PM
Hi Lauren, I’ll be camping that weekend. I’ll be your buddy. We’ll have you slicing through murky water like a shark in no time. :)
laurenperez16 - 8/16/2018 11:50 AM
Wayne!!! I can’t wait to see you!
IronRanger - 8/18/2018 1:48 PM
Hi Lauren, Do youhave an estimated arrival time for Saturday?
laurenperez16 - 8/18/2018 2:01 PM
Hey Wayne! I’ll be camped there from Friday night.
gefilteefish - 8/23/2018 1:55 AM
Hey are you guys staying there sunday the 26th till like late afternoon?? Im looking for a buddy but i can only get there around 3 and i would love to get in around 2 dives
IronRanger - 8/23/2018 8:54 AM
Isac, I can’t speak for anyone else, but that’s pushing it for me. Here’s what I’ll do..I’ll sign up for one dive if you are there by 3:30. Unless you’re doing really short dives you probably won’t get 2 dives in. Dutch wants you in the water by 5 for last dive and out of the gate by 6. Let me know...856-313-4965
AlexD - 8/14/2018 7:51 PM
Hello guys,
I’m going to be at Dutch on Saturday (8/18) and Sunday (8/19).

TedG - 8/15/2018 12:39 PM
