...where is "Dutch Springs"? Seems like it is very popular, but I have never heard of it.

It’s a cold place for divers in the NE to get wet while dreaming of diving in Florida :)

There was just a story in last months Alert Diver about Dutch, I had not been aware that it’s the most dived site, something like 33,000 dives a season!

I wish they would update the map... And the whole website really.

I think it’s 33,000 divers visit the site so the number of dives is probably 2-4x that.

Wow! I never get up that way, but if I ever do I’ll check it out.

From Lehigh Valley Live...

"The former quarry, established in 1980 and owned by Stuart Schooley, attracts about 30,000 divers annually and has hosted more than 750,000 divers since its opening. The lake spans 50 acres and reaches a maximum depth of about 100 feet."

Great setup for newer divers (with platforms at approx. 25’ for CESA etc. and lots of attractions for any skill level.
