Our Water

We are trying new things here at Seabase. We have been testing a new natural Enzyme in White Rocks. Test is in and they are working!! We have stepped up our game and now we are introducing a bottom and mid water Enzyme to all our water. Within the next few weeks we should start seeing results. We will keep you posted…

a sad Goodbye to Ron

The friendly Seabase guy, Ron Simmons, passed away on the 4th of September, after a battle with cancer-and he will be missed! He has been with Seabase for over 10 years, and enjoyed talking with all of you.

Until things get sorted out, Seabase will only be open on Saturdays and Sundays. Keep a watch for changes again- but we still hope to see you on weekends. As usual, reservations are a smart thing to do, and please let us know your arrival time, to prevent a drive all the way to Seabase to find a locked gate!

call 435-884-3874 or email info@seabase.net for info or reservations

Cover is back on White Rocks Bay

It's been an interesting summer.  Now with the (sometimes) cooler nights, we are finding that White Rocks Bay is already warmer -with the cover still installed.   The 62 foot Abyss is open, and is the warmest area, but not as interesting.     Don't forget to let us know if you are coming out 24 hours in advance preferably and diving or snorkeling now on weekends only.   We hope to see you out to enjoy the water. Just let us know when you're ready to dive or snorkel.    

June, 2017 We were open every day in July, and will be again 1n 2018, with a reservation!!! call 435-884-3874, to be sure the gate will be open.

We will be open every day during July, but will require an appointment, so be sure to tell us when you are coming our way.  Hours of operation will be 9 til 3 on weekdays, and 8 til 4 on Saturdays and Sundays.

On September 9th, the Shine Fest people will be doing a lantern festival at Seabase- you need to book it with them online.  We will be open to the public for diving and snorkeling, but just until 4PM, and the Fest will be after that and  is a different issue-get your tickets before the price goes up!  I understand that mermaids will be swimming around in Seabase before the lantern party!

  1. note that there are other companies that put on lantern festivals-check their track record, as they seem to have poor business practices.  

January 2017

We have endured a year of bizarre weather, with great hopes for a more stable climate for the rest of the winter.  Those of you who have been diving here this year can see how clear the bays are, and that the visibility makes the colder water almost tolerable-right?  We are now a great place to learn how to use drysuits, practice rebreathers, such things that we were, in the past, a bit too warm for-so while we wait for summer, lets adapt! Another benefit of coming out now-We offer free fish food for you to take down to the fish so they can stay in their warm nooks and crannies, -so take advantage of that and come on out!

December 29th, 2016

As this year comes to a cold end, there is a new year to look forward to.  Meanwhile, there are some changes to Seabase this year, and one is the erection of a huge solar array.  The solar company told us that by using solar, we are saving the environment 126,582 pounds of Carbon dioxide emissions from going into the atmosphere each year, and are providing the equivalent of planting 1382 trees per year.   

We have loyal divers who brought out Christmas decorations-and installed a Christmas tree in the bottom of Habitat Bay-(raise your hands if you saw it this year) and with the great vis, dress up in your warmest wetsuit and come on out-the fish are easy to find, as they hang around the warm vents, and we provide free fish food to take down to feed them during the cold months.

We are still open every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but please make a phone call or email us some notice that you are coming!

  Happy New Years, all of you!

                    Linda, George, Ron, Selin and Lynda Lou.

December 23rd

We are experiencing colder than normal water temperatures,  A theory is that the Great Salt Lake level is very low, due to the drought,  and not pushing down on the aquifer, so water is not rising as fast as normal, therefore not warming the bays as much as it did.  The fish are staying in the warm vents, so far, and most seem to be doing OK.  It is still good diving, but be sure to plan on bringing or renting a good wetsuit  to have a good experience.  White Rock bay is down to 56 degrees, Habitat Bay is 54, and the Abyss is 75 degrees.
