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

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.
