Last weeks Dutch Spring's weekend brought on 18 new Open Water Divers and 5 folks in our Advanced Open Water course. Others just headed out with us to escape the heat of the City! It was hot in Bethlehem PA too, except when our groups hit the thermocline, where it was a wonderful 55 degrees F.
A big shout out to our two new Instructors Kathryn & Tomasz. They were great Dive Masters and it is awesome to now have them on board as Instructors. Thanks for all your hard work!

The Dive Crew at Pan Aqua Diving would like to extend our congratulations to Lenny Speregen, our repair technician extraordinaire! You see for many years after spending his mornings servicing regulators, after heading to places like the Gowanus Canal and doing salvage work; after doing battle with local Harbor Seals; after heading home to be with his family; Lenny some how found the time to go to college and pursue his dream of getting his Bachelor's Degree. Last weekend he not only achieved that dream but managed to graduate summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa as well; all of his dive buddies at Pan Aqua give him big hugs and high fives! Lenny you are incredible!
