bear lake
Bear Lake
  • Relatively close: a little over an hour to Cisco Beach (the dive site) on the eastern shore.
  • Warm enough to dive June to October (with thick wetsuit). Visibility ~30 feet
  • Day use fee ($?) or camp overnight ($10)
  • Short walk to a rocky shore entry. Quick drop-off to beyond recreational limits. Use a dive flag.
  • Small “caves”, some fish (trout, carp, sculpin)

homestead crater
Homestead Crater
  • Busiest dive site in Utah. Located in Midway, near Heber (2½ hour drive)
  • Geothermally heated: ~95 degrees all year (no wetsuit needed).
  • Neat dive site: through a cave, inside a small mountain. 60’ deep, visibility ~40 feet. Swim-thrus and other things suspended. Gear rental available on site.
  • Admission: $22/$27 (weekdays/weekends, register well in advance of trip).
  • Life: none
  • Overall: Definitely dive it once. Popular for check out dives.
bonneville seabase
Bonneville Seabase
  • Most interesting Utah dive site?
  • Water temp varies with season: dive during summer best (may still want wetsuit). Poor visibility (~3 feet). Gear rental available.
  • Several interconnected ponds stocked with tropical fish (bring romaine lettuce), including 2 nurse sharks.
  • Admission: $15 (call in advance).
  • Overall: Definitely dive it once, and make sure you find the sharks.
blue lake
Blue Lake
  • Long drive (~4 hours): out Hwy 80, near Wendover. Dirt road.
  • Geothermally heated (~70 degrees, likely want wetsuit). Gets warmer toward hot pots on bottom. Vis: 15 ft. Depth: 50 feet. Small dock, some metal sculptures underwater. Nearest facilities (lodging/food) in Wendover.
  • Life: fish relatively common
  • Overall, nice dive site, but no shops nearby for rental or fills and it’s very far away.
