...with an abrasive owner. We arrived to find a individual, later identified to us the owner of the facility, shrieking alternately at the bewildered driver who was "in the wrong line!!!" and a poor young employee who had directed him there. This off-putting episode over,...More

This quarry will no doubt be "sold" to you as a great place to do your check out dives for any of your training. This makes sense as it is at a temperature that allows diving in a 7mm wetsuit with gloves and hood for...More

Stew and the staff work to coordinate this event with Handicapped SCUBA Alliance and Wounded Warriors. From planning to break down, everyone is made to feel welcome. Its about fun, but Stew and his staff are there to watch out for everyone's' safety as well.

We were here on the Saturday before the 4th of July and while there were a lot of people, it never felt crowded. They provide life jackets without additional cost which is very much appreciated. The inflatables are lots of fun and it's also nice...More

We visited Dutch Springs to go scuba diving. It is difficult to get to the water with all the equipment and personally we felt like the water was murky. The park was very clean and nice there. The snack bar serves decent burgers. The tank...More

Very cool day trip for the family. Kids had a blast climbing all over the inflatables and the highlight for them I think was the blob. Will go back, pack a picnic and snacks.
