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!

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!

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.

Another amazing week here at the Seabase!

It was busy last week with students doing their open water assessments and some underwater pumpkin carving!

Habitat bay seems to still be on the cooling trend, and while this makes diving there a bit chillier, the fish have mostly moved to White Rocks bay where it is warmer. It is hard not to see a lot of fish there and if you bring a bag of food, you are sure to be swarmed!   Keep your fingers in close and watch as the life of Seabase comes to you.

 Halloween is right around the corner, and October 22nd saw our annual underwater pumpkin carve.  With a dive knife and pumpkin, these divers were able to show us your skills and win  cool prizes, like dive computers, masks, dive bags, shirts, hats, etc.  Young Z. Zoun was busy keeping things in order, and the day was a success.  Entry fee was free, and a lot of people made it fun. Come join us for the next fun day, and hopefully, meet some new dive partners.

This weekend, our wonderful friends from Casper are busy with classes, and they do small groups at a time, are easy to work around-c'mon out!

We hope you are all doing well! Keep blowing bubbles!
