    MAP

    My wife and I are headed to Dutch at the end of this month and were trying our best to track down a map to get a few things done on a single dive. Last time I was there my buddy and I had a hard time finding thing once we got down. We could start at one site and find another however it was hard to find that 3ed site with out any headings. Its a long drive for us and we plan on spending the weekend but I can only afford one to two trips a year up that way so we like to see as much as we can.

    Anyways I was wondering if anyone had compass headings, and distances from point to point. I do not but I came up with an idea using google to find them and I would enjoy seeing how close my google information is to the information on the surface of the water.

    If this images post right you will see what I did. I think I am missing a few markers and I may have missed labeled a few as well. Please remember that I have only been to Dutch 2 times and used a map located on the DS website to get a good direction for this map.

    Please input would be great. If this does not work I am going to Swim out with a waterproof GPS and try it.

    I think the gift shop at Dutch Springs sells a slate with a map. I believe it has compass headings form location to location.

    Unless they've changed it, the underwater slate/map does not have compass bearings. Picked one up last year, and nothing. Locations are a wee bit off as well.

    I started this last year, want to try and pick up more info on my trip this year...

    Headings

    I dove on sat and the group wanted to find the heading from the Heli to the silver comet. In the process of planning the dive I asked one of the divers if he had any headings recorded. Here's what I got from him:

    Heli(nose) to the silver comet(cabin cruiser) 300*
    Heli(nose) to cessna on the island 200*
    Heli(nose) to island 260*
    Heli(nose) to road 0* follow road to bus
    Bus(rear) look for small boat 90* of bow of boat to the hell diver
    From the steps on the student side 205* to plane
    Crane to trolley 210*
    East end of trolley to 6x6 150*
    Crane to island 30*

    It's not much but hope it helps.
