Being my first time at DS, I was looking forward to the hype of the great visibility compared to our local quarries. We arrived on Friday late afternoon and have to say the check in process was painful. The check procedures with their staff was confusing in my opinion a lot of unnecessary bureaucracy. The staff was very friendly and... More

Always the best place for teaching students, clean, clear water and safe place for learning the basics of SCUBA diving. A lot of attractions for students to see and to maintain interest.

The visibility at Dutch Springs can be very hit and miss, some trips have been great others not so much. Overall, there is generally not much to look at underwater, unless you like exploring sunken vehicles. Personally, I would like to see more fish. But this is definitely the best place to dive in Pennsylvania.

We went to Dutch Springs for mini vacation with some friends. My wife does not dive and for her to have something to do while I dove was a great addition. She absolutely loved it! There are many children that utilize the park, however it is also adult friendly and plenty of room for all. When my dives were finished... More

You have to know what you are visiting before set your expectations too high or even too low. The water park is a place within a controlled environment where scuba divers play. The park is intended so divers can bring non diver friends and family. I am personally a diver and love every minute I spend in the actual water... More

Took my kids last summer summer and they had a blast. They couldn't wait to go again this summer. We went last week and they all had a great time! If you don't arrive early, you will probably not get a lounge chair. I suggest bringing your own chairs and an umbrella as well. There is a grass area to... More

The water temp here is chilly, but moving around warms you right up. The park has done a nice job with sinking "wrecks" to enjoy while scuba diving. There are plenty of very large bass and other fish. There are some really cool elusive koi fish that if you spot consider yourself lucky. Renting paddleboats or kayaks are another fun... More

I went to Dutch Springs Park for the North East Diving Equipment Group, the staff at Dutch Springs told me where they were setting up the event, answered all the questions I had and was very welcoming. The Event (not related to the park) was great, if you ever wanted to try commercial diving gear from as old as a... More

There's lots of sunken features in the quarry and they are at varying depths, so it suits all levels of divers. There are platforms to train on. My club usually does some exercises on the platform as refreshers for the newer divers. The water is COLD in May, especially without a warm spring proceeding it. Vis is very good.Staff is... More

Plenty of attractions for the recreational diver and loads of platforms for refreshing scuba skills and/or certifications. Just remember to bring a thick wetsuit or drysuit... Especially early in the season.
