What's a little snow and ice?
Not to be deterred by a little thing like freezing temperatures and a wicked cold front, some of our intrepid UADC staff ventured out for a New Year's Eve dive at Dutch Springs. Paul, Gerry, Chris, Neil, and Greg braved the cold to increase their 2017 bottom time by an impressive 58 minutes. The hearty crew logged almost an hour dive as they made a circuit of favorite underwater attractions, including the Cessna, the tanker, and the cove. They are happy to let you know that all of your favorite Dutch Springs destinations are hibernating, awaiting your spring dive arrivals!

when Dutch Springs was a comfortable 75-90 degrees this summer!)
New Year's Eve Dive Log
Time: 58 minutes
Max Depth: 68 feet
Min water temp: 44 F
Air temp: 11 F
Hot chocolate, good humor, and dry suits sustained our crew. However, they reported a long, cold walk back from the cove to the shower room, during which they all got to experience the excitement of ice formation on their suits. Exciting! They're just about ready for diving in the Arctic! Many thanks to Rob for surface support and assistance in getting divers out of their icy gear! Many thanks to Paul for the hot chocolate.
And now, anyone up for doing a little ice diving? Seems that this will be the winter to try out that specialty...
Can't wait until the Spring to get in the water? Join us for the annual New Year's Eve dive at Dutch Springs (weather permitting). 11:00 am start. We'll bring the hot chocolate. Wetsuit divers get extra respect! Let us know if you have any questions.
