Returning to Dutch Springs

Dutch Springs is a fun place to dive and an excellent location to further your scuba training and skills. Dutch Springs does not provide any scuba instruction, so check with your local dive shop or instructor to learn about training opportunities that they may offer.

To gain entrance to Dutch Springs you will need to pay our daily admission fee, show your certification card, fill out a waiver, and have our season waiver sticker placed on your C-card. If you purchase admission for consecutive days, filling out and signing a waiver is only required on the first day. We will accept temporary scuba certification cards in place of your actual C-card. If you do not yet have a certification card, please discuss entry procedures with your scuba instructor. Children under 12 years old must be accompanied by an adult.

Once a waiver has been filled out and signed, a sticker will be placed on your C-card indicating that a signed waiver has been submitted. As long as you show your C-card, with our sticker, another waiver does not have to be submitted during our calendar year.
