Dive in for Haiti A Sucess!!

Dive Utah had a great turnout for the Dive In for Haiti Fundraiser. Over 50 people attended and over $1100 was raised for the American Red Cross. We had 17 people take part in Discover Scubas, 6 people in an underwater Texas Hold'em tournament and numerous people bid on various prizes in the silent auction. We had Jazz and Bee's tickets, an ipod, gift baskets and gift certificates to various businesses. A special thanks goes out to the Adams Family, Little Caesars Pizza, Leonhardt Pepsi Distribution, Scubapro, Seadive, PADI, H&R Block and Mount Olympus Crossfit for their donations.

Dive In for Haiti

We are all shocked by the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti. As divers who frequent the Caribbean we have all seen the effects of hurricanes and natural disasters. Join Dive Utah as we raise money for Haitian Relief on January 30 from 1-4pm.

Come down to Dive Utah, donate at least $10 and take a dive in the pool. Feel free to use our equipment if you need (though if we are busy you might need to wait your turn).

Non-divers can try out scuba diving. Our instructors are volunteering so the normal price of a Discover Scuba, $15, will also go the relief donation. Call ahead to schedule your Discover time. Read more about Dive In for Haiti

Saba Trip in February

Rising steeply from the Caribbean Sea, Saba is a special island that takes you away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Four small villages are as quaint and charming as the people that you will meet. Saba is a monument to nature’s best above and below the ocean’s surface.

The famous Marine park is second to none. Lava tunnels and hot springs remind divers of the dramatic volcanic beginnings of the island. The small leeward side hosts spur and grove reef formations but it is her pinnacles that have made Saba famous. The pinnacles are actually the summits of underwater mountains, beginning at around 85’ and extending deep into the abyss. They are awesomely impressive, not only to divers but apparently to the larger fish and pelagics that are frequent visitors. Read more about Saba Trip in February
