All of our UADC instructors and staff are fans of local diving. If you have questions, just ask!
Dutch Springs which was sold and is currently closed will re-open as (Lake Hydra), a scuba diving facility in Bethlehem, PA (approx. one hour away). While we are waiting for Lake Hydra to open. We do have some alternative locations. These locations are in Pennsylvania at Willow Springs and Lake Allure and on occasion to North Carolina at Fantasy Lake. We also understand that Indian Valley Scuba is opening up a quarry in Slatington PA that will be called "Lake Aquarius" It is in the works, but sounds very promising. We also have local diving at Round Valley Reservoir, which is a NJ State Park. And there is always the Delaware River.
Need a buddy? Let us know ahead of time and we'll try to connect you with another diver who is headed out to dive for the day. If you also want to brush up on your diving with a pro, we can arrange for a local dive guide or a divemaster to dive with you. We have also started a Dive Club to bring together our divers for events, local diving and destination diving. Please reach out if you are interested in participating in the Dive Club.
