Twiske at De Stootersplas

Twiske (“Onderwaterpark Twiske”) is a diving area located in the lake of De Stootersplas, north of Amsterdam. With a maximum depth of 30m, there are plenty of things to see. This is also the location where police forensic divers train.



  • Down Under is the nearest dive shop – 15mins drive from the dive location offering gas fills. Note: they are only open 5-days per week.
  • Plenty of parking (billed per hour).
  • Paviljoen Twiske offers food and drinks. You can also get your log book stamped here.
  • Limited toilet facilities, and no benches to set up on.

What can I see?

  • There are several chained “circuit loops” that take you around the various wrecks and sites. A map is available at the entrance to the water.
  • Our favorite is the container maze – multiple shipping containers connected across two levels that are often packed with schools of fish.


  • Underwater visibility is best during winter (up to 6m), but temperatures can reach as low as 5c in Dec/Jan.
  • Water temperature during summer can reach 16c.
  • Drysuits recommended!

Good to know

  • Significantly less busy than other dive locations in the Netherlands like Eiland 4, but the area is still popular amongst dog walkers
  • Take a changing mat with you – it can get a bit muddy from the rain.
