Hi, James,
Some of my buddies and I would like to do some late winter/spring diving and are looking for locations. We would be happy to drive to you. Please let me know if you’re interested and the body of water you have in mind.

Thanks,
Joe G.

Hello Joe,

For dive sites near me there’s Canandaigua lake, we could also go north to Rochester and the great lakes, or even further north to the St Laurence River for some wreck diving near Clayton NY. I’d also be willing to venture down to PA if there are any easy/good sites. I know there are a few good quarries down your way.

Cheers,
james

Hi, James,
Those sites near you sound interesting. I’d like to check them out. As for quarries, Dutch Springs and Willow Springs are near me. Dutch opens April 6, and Willow is available by appointment over the winter. There are also lakes in state parks. Let me know your preferences and when you’re free to dive.

Thanks,
Joe G.

Thanks,
James

Matt, that sounds great! I actually drive through there fairly regularly, going back and forth from college.

Hey Joe all good here you’ll definitely have to get up this way this season. I’ll plan on being down at Dutch too.

Hi, James.
I live right by Dutch Springs, so I will be diving there most weekends starting from opening day, April 6. If you want to come down here to dive, just get in touch.
I am also planning several trips up to the St. Lawrence this year. My plan was to start that in June, but if you want to go earlier, I could be up for that.
I’d be interested to dive some of the sites you list near you, since I have never done any of those nor know anything about them. If you know how to get to them, where to enter, etc. I’d be game to try them out.

Mark!

That sounds like a great plan. If everyone wants to message me with their numbers we can get a group together to plan some trips.
