Scuba Diving in PA

Dive in Local Lakes

There is a wealth of locations to dive locally in Central PA. There are numerous Scuba Diving Lakes that are specifically designed and maintained for use by divers. These Scuba Diving Lakes feature underwater platforms for classes and skill building.

Many divers go to the lakes nearly every weekend to practice their skills, share camaraderie, and engage in the active and exciting sport of Scuba Diving. Links to the local Scuba Diving Lakes are located at the bottom of this page. The lakes contain underwater attractions such as:

Submerged Boats, Planes, and Construction Vehicles

Buoyancy Practice Courses

Unique Species of Local Flora and Fauna

Find Pieces of US History

Find Pieces of US History

One of the most exciting activities to take part in while Scuba Diving is searching for discarded pieces of history left resting in the sand and the mud for us to discover. There are scuba diving sites all across Central PA where you can find old soda and milk bottles, pieces of jewelry, and a vast array of items dating back to the founding of Pennsylvania and even into Pennsylvania’s prehistoric period. We go “crickin”, a term derived to fondly describe this activity, in locations like the Conestoga River, the Susquehanna River, York, Harrisburg, Reading and many other locations. Diving and finding these sites does take some practice, and so we invite you to join us whenever we go “crickin”.
