NEDEG wishes to thank

Dutch Springs

for their many years

of service to the community

The North East Diving Equipment Group (NEDEG) is a group of individuals dedicated to preserving, promoting and diving a variety of underwater gear from all around the world.

These include historical gear such as vintage and modern Navy diving helmets, modern lightweight commercial diving helmets, double hose regulators, and other open circuit gear. Learn about the history of diving and the equipment that evolved from the past.

We give a chance for sport scuba divers to actually dive some of the gear you would normally only see on television or old movies!
