Revised PADI Open Water Course

Dive Utah is pleased to be teaching the revised PADI Open Water Diver Course.

With a bigger emphasis on planning dives and better buoyancy control, the revised course will make beginning divers even more comfortable. Plus, with updated manuals and videos, you now longer have to see the corny jokes that were a bit painful!!

Hogle Zoo

The Hogle Zoo has a fun new exhibit called Rocky Shores.

Seals and sea lions are in one tank and Rizzo, the polar bear is in the other. These tanks are large with Plexiglas sides so you can see the animals as they swim around in the water. The harbor seals are almost always playing and will come right up to the window to watch you!! Read more about Hogle Zoo - Rocky Shores

Indonesia Trip Report

Kungkungan Bay Resort in Indonesia

In March 2013, Dive Utah took a group to Kungkungan Bay Resort in Indonesia.

They spent a week diving the Lembah Straight. This area is famous for muck diving. Creatures that live in these black sandy bottoms have learned how to blend in and they are sure hard to see.

One of the highlights was diving the Mawali wreck. This was a Japanese cargo ship sunk during WWII. We saw many different critters during our week including different octopi, star gazers, pygmy sea horses, ribbon eels, decorator crabs and the list goes on.

The resort was very nice and we had it all to ourselves. The staff was quite possibly the most attentive we have ever seen. Read more about Indonesia Trip Report
