STEP 2 - PADI Open Water Dives Homestead



The PADI Open Water Dives are the second and final step in completing your PADI Open Water Diver Certification.  These can be completed over one weekend, 2 dives on Saturday and 2 dives on Sunday.  Once you have completed your certification you will be Scuba certified for life with a maximum depth rating of 60 feet.  Don't wait, make sure you complete this step before your next trip!

Open Water Dive Locations

The Homestead Crater (HC) - Fall & Winter Months, October 2019 through October 2020
Midway, Utah (Approximately 20 minutes from Park City, Utah)
Clear Water, Heated Geo-thermally to 90-95 Degrees 

The Blue Hole (BH)- Occasional Fall & Winter Months, TBD 
Santa Rosa, New Mexico 
Spring Fed, Clear Water, Constant 64 Degrees



If you do not own a mask, snorkel, and fins, and you do not plan on purchasing them prior to your Open Water dives, you can rent them from the shop for $35.00 (for the weekend). 

Important information about Homestead Crater: 

Divers are responsible for their own transportation to and from the Crater, as well as lodging, food, and any other necessities. That said, the Homestead Resort does offer our students a group rate. All you need to do is tell them you’re with Flatirons Scuba & Travel and ask about the rate. We also recommend reserving your rooms as soon as possible, as the resort does book up quickly in the winter. If you’re unable to reserve a room with the Homestead Resort, we recommend the Zermatt hotel nearby.

*Divers Alert Network (DAN) recommends a surface interval of 18 hours after multiple dives. If you want to fly into Salt Lake City, please plan to stay in Utah for an additional day after you complete dives 3 & 4. For more information, please visit diversalertnetwork.org

If you fly, you will be responsible for paying a $25.00 fee for the instructors to transport your gear to and from the Crater.

Materials Included:
BCD, Tanks, Weights, Regulator & Wetsuit. Does NOT include mask, snorkel, and fins.
Requirements:
You must have completed the PADI Basic Open Water Class within a year of your Open Water dives (classroom and confined water work).
