UPDATE ON LOCAL DIVING
For the past 15 years, we have conducted our open water dives at Dutch Springs Aqua Park in Pennsylvania. It was a convenient place to offer a training experience for our students, and we are very thankful for all the memories we made there while getting students their SCUBA certifications.
This past fall, the owner of Dutch Springs announced his retirement and sale of his property to a warehouse development company. While the new ownership of the property has pledged to keep the quarry available for divers once construction is complete, a timetable for that has not yet been established, and local diving options will be different in 2022.
This change has brought us new opportunity to enhance our scuba diving experience and strengthen the bond between SCUBA Network stores. We have run the numbers (including entry fee to the park, gas, tolls, rental car and hotel), and have discovered that we can deliver an open water scuba diving weekend with our sister store in Fort Lauderdale for the same price or cheaper!
We are very excited to introduce our students to the open water over a beautiful coral reef and the awesome shipwrecks of sunny South Florida. Our weekends will include 3 nights hotel, all rental gear, a New York instructor escort, and more.
For those who do not wish to leave the tri-state area, we can provide referrals to our Long Island store located in Carle Place, NY. We look forward to diving with you! Click the button below to see available Florida weekends.
