Anyone know if Dutch Springs is still opening May 16th, or have they pushed it back to June?
chasep255 - 4/30/2020 12:20 PM
I hope they open. I think PA is allowing outdoor recreation now.

MDW - 3/10/2020 10:16 PM
I can’t go on the 18th, but I will be there the 19th
ChristopherBurgert - 3/22/2020 11:11 AM
I heard they’re shut down now until further notice.
MDW - 3/24/2020 2:22 PM
Yes, the PA Governor made an unconstitutional proclamation that all "non-essential" businesses must shutdown. Most businesses are doing this anyway, which is probably a smart thing to do. That may be lifted by 18 April. we’ll see. In the meantime, Chase and I are planning to dive in some public bodoes of water, starting with Randolph (NJ) Park this Saturday. I’ll probably be going in the Lehigh and Delaware rivers if DS stays closed into April.
ChristopherBurgert - 3/26/2020 5:52 AM
I go to the Delaware river sometimes, but I haven’t found any spots more the a few feet deep.
chasep255 - 3/26/2020 8:30 AM
There is a 113ft deep hole in the upper delaware and there seems to be some depth by the delaware water gap. I would like to try diving both sites so message me if you would like to dive there.

Hello fellow divers,
Could you please recommend Ice Diving certification in the area?
(Anything within 6 hours drive from Dutch Springs works)

Lancaster SCUBA has run this class in past years. Not sureif they still do it.
MDW - 1/23/2020 8:44 AM
You may also want to contact Hunt’s Dive Shop in the Thousand Islands area. They get some good ice up there. I was invited to do some ice diving with them last year but I’m not sure if they offer it as an actual class.
