I’m just getting back into diving and found a list of all the diving spots in Utah. I’d like to start going to the different places to explore around. Lets meet up and go together or lets get a group of people together to start going.

I’m up for that. Are you local? I see your profile says Cali.

Hi! I’m from PA but I’ll be in Salt Lake from March 4-12th. I’d love to get in the water while I’m out there!

By, that would be great! I have not been in the water in a year; just had a baby, but I plan to get back in the water in a week or 2. I’d love to plan an outing.

I use to dive at Dutch Springs in PA all the time! I am an instructor and dive often in salt lake. We could take you to the crater, if you can handle diving in 95 degree water temps 😉. Otherwise other dive sites would most likely be dry suit diving in March. The crater rents out all gear too.

Fantastic Amber and Candace! I’m excited to have people to dive with let alone other women! It’s fairly uncommon out my way unfortunately. I’ve sent both of you buddy requests. Feel free to message me whenever or I’ll try to reach out once we get a little closer with your availability. My dates are set at this point and I can make myself available whenever. I’m also working on a dry suit so hopefully by March I should have one. The crater sounds fantastic though!

I’m assuming this is what you’re referring to as the "crater"?: homesteadresort.com/utah-resort-things-to-do/homestead-crater/

Just following up.
Anyone interested in going this upcoming week? The sessions are for one hour and cost $22. For a tank rental it’s $10 and for weights its $5.

I have a reservation for Thursday 03/09 at 6pm right now but I’m flexible.

I would love to but I’m watching my sisters kids over night. I can do any other Thursday though. Are you making your own appointment or going through a dive along?

Anyone want to go to homestead crater this weekend? June 30th, July 1st weekend? It’s been over a year since I have been in the water due to having a baby and I’m ready to get back in. I need to get a couple dives in before my trip to Mexico so I’m comfortable. I’m excited but nervous because I’ll be diving in salt water rather than fresh water and I don’t have my buoyancy down yet.

When will you be coming back, (after this trip)? I my sister has left town so i don’t have a sitter for my daughter, therefore I can’t go during the week. So sorry! I really would like to get out in the water though. I might be able to go in the evening when my husband gets home around 4 pm, but it will have to be the crater since I’m not night certified.
