I was planning to go to Dutch springs, but I'm currently buddy-less...Have you used the Dutch springs buddy finder?

Not me. I usually go through my LDS for a buddy. Let me know how it works out for you, or better yet, let us know when you want to dive.

I've used it and met some nice people. There's a ton of garbage posts on there, but there are legit people looking for buddies too.

Edited to add: We're camping out at Dutch this weekend, so if you're there and looking for a buddy, you're welcome to join us for a dive or some dives. My buddy has about 25-30 dives, and I should be hitting 60 this weekend, so it looks like we're all in pretty much the same range of experience (judging from your profile)

That's for looking for a DIFFERENT kind of "buddy" :smiley2:

I had a friend that used to just find stray divers and dive with them up there...got himself a pretty good stable of dive buddies!

My local dive shop is setting up a trip to Dutch Springs in sept - went there last year at that time, it was great! http://www.portdiver.com/index.php (http://www.portdiver.com/index.php)

I did not know they had a buddy finder either. I get a season pass every year and go up with my LDS too. Maybe I should look into this. I also want to find a permanent dive buddy.

Season passes for next year went on sale this weekend, and if you buy now, you can use them for the rest of this season too. It's a great deal. I'll be buying next weekend for sure.

That's awesome, I was planning on buying a season pass for next year. I am planning to head up this Sat. If anyone needs a buddy PM me...
