Hey guys! So I am finally getting to Dutch Springs and my plan is to go on Saturday July 26th, probably in the early AM. I am really open to diving anywhere, but I tend to be the type of person to take things slow once on the bottom and take in the scenery. I am Open Water Certified so I can’t really dive TOO deep, but I personally have no problem going down to 70 feet. Anyone available? It would definitely make my plans easier lol

Scubadelphia will be there that weekend. You might try hooking up with them. Scubadelphia.com
Or the Dutch Springs buddy finder.
There is a student area where it is relatively shallow and you can walk in off steps and a platform.
That’s the easiest entry area I know off.
A group of four of us (all guys) are going this weekend, some one is bringing a new diver along.
If you stay above 30’ the temps should be pretty comfortable.

I am more experienced than that lol. I am actually going on an 80 foot wreck dive this weekend. I logged 7 dives last year, this is my second year diving, so I am not worried about that. I will try to get in touch with scubadelphia. The Dutch Springs buddy finder is down right now and they told us to come here.

I don’t guarantee I’ll be there, but if I decide to go there instead of a non-"pay to play" site i’ll try to remember to post up here again.

From peacelovedreamer: I am actually going on an 80 foot wreck dive this weekend.

Enjoy the wreck!
I don’t know about Dutch having spent last week in the Bahamas it might take me a little while to man-up to the cold. LOL

But depending when you want to dive, 3+ of us will be there 7/19 and 7/20 diving. Dives will probably vary from 45-100’.

I’m looking to dive that weekend and need a buddy.
If you still need a buddy, let me know.
I could make the 26th work.

I do! It would be awesome to dive with you. What time did you plan to get there and did you have any specific dives in mind?

Sounds good. I should be able to confirm the 26th in a few days. I’ll let you know.
For visibility, I like getting there when they open. The earlier the better.
I have no specific plans. We can work that out.
I’m flexible.

I too am looking for someone to dive with on the 26th at Dutch Springs, actually also looking to get a couple of dives in on the morning of the 27th too. Let me know if you think you might want to get together. I’m there when they open the gates, I dive wet with air.

I would love to meet up. Perhaps you, me, and chasbub could all go together (if he is still going). I plan to get there for opening.

Hi guys, the three of us diving together sounds good, I’m a season pass holder so I will be going right in. If we exchange contact info perhaps I can get in and get a table where we can set up at and let you know where I ended up, if there are tables available. I would think that we would end up on the Peninsula side, they won’t let us park down there, but I believe we can go in with the vehicles long enough to drop our equipment off. I’ll email you my telephone # for a call or text if necessary and perhaps you will return with your’s. I already have chasbub’s email address but will need peacelovedreamer’s. Mine is ricio3@comcast.net.

Yes, you can drive down and unload. they wont rush you as long as you get you stuff out and get the car moved,
