Cabin Cruisers

In the 1980’s, four wooden cabin cruisers were among the first attractions sunk at Dutch Springs.

The cruisers range in depth from 40 ft to 70 ft.

Three cruisers are marked attractions, two on the Peninsula Side and one on the Student Side. The fourth, sitting between the Diamond Reef and Challenger 600, is unmarked ideal for natural navigation.  From the Bus, just follow the old quarry road southeast and you will find the boat.

Car

Donated by Mr. Peter Wright, owner of Keystone Helicopter, the Sikorsky H-37 was sunk in November of 1995.

This suspended from the surface attraction is penetrable by experienced scuba divers through several openings along the sides of the aircraft or through direct openings to the surface in the cockpit and just behind the main rotor.

Originally in the center of the lake, the helicopter was moved to the mouth of the cul-de-sac during the winter of 2016 to make room for Dutch Springs newest attraction, the Challenger 500 airplane.
