I really enjoy going to Dutch. Most attractions have ropes between them so try to remember which ones you are using. My Favorite dive there is to enter on tyhe Pennisula side at the entrance to the right of the lookouts. (Blacktopped entrance, not the entrance near the aqua park) and swim out to the training platform. When you get to the platform turn left. At the end of the platform is a rope (line) decending to about 60'. This is the silver comet, and it takes you to near the bow. From there off the stern a line goeas to a second wreck, (same depth +/-) I think the line comes in at the stern, at about midships (?) another line runs out to the "island" and the tail of a small plane. at about 30' and warmer. and then return in reverse. Easy.
Enjoy and post back on what you think of the place...
We had a great time up at Dutch yesterday. We've read and heard alot about this place and were anxious to check it out. From where I live its only about a 1 1/2 hour drive. Got there about 10am. Taking your advice (IceSlim & ohm) we steered clear of the majority of the classes on the student side and did our dives from the peninsula. There were still classes doing dives from here, but they weren't very large. The first dive we tried a little underwater navigation and worked on our trim and bouyancy. After a nice long SI we did a second dive. We followed the wall around from the same entry point on the peninsula (to the right of the lookout on the blacktop) to the firetruck near the student side (there were no classes in the water by now).
This is great place to get in a couple of nice relaxing dives and the facilities they have there (food, showers, etc) were well kept and clean. We're already planning another trip back in a few weeks. Hope to see some of you there.
