TOPSIDE ADVENTURES
Did you know that One World Dive & Travel does adventure travel too. In addition to our popular group SCUBA trips, we also guide adventures to non-dive destinations as well. Here’s a look back at some of our favorite top side adventures so far:
It’s hard to beat an adventure that starts out by traveling as far south of the border as you can. After a week of chasing waterfalls (Iguaçu falls that is) and sight seeing in Buenos Aires, we hopped aboard our ship to cross the famed Drake Passage over to the most southern continent in the world. We kayaked with leopard seals, photographed penguins, and even . . . click here to keep reading.
TRAVEL TIP OF THE MONTH
There are so many great safety accessories you can use to keep yourself safe above and below the water, from a simple safety sausage to a GPS beacon. On our recent Galapagos trip, our divers used Dive Alerts at the surface, and Nautilus Lifelines as a backup. Ask our staff about what safety features are recommended for your favorite destinations.
CONGRATULATIONS!

TOP 3 REASONS TO VISIT HOMESTEAD CRATER
October kicks off our winter certification season at Homestead Crater! Located just 20 minutes north of Park City in Midway, Utah, the geothermal hot spring of Homestead Crater allows us to offer Open Water dives year round.
 
If you have yet to complete your open water dives, a weekend adventure to Homestead might be the best option for you! These are just a few of the reasons you should do your Open Water Dives with us at Homestead (according to our staff and instructors.)
 
3.) Homestead Crater is a nice weekend getaway
Dive trips are always an adventure and getting certified at Homestead is a great “first dive trip.” Pack the car for a scenic drive and spend the weekend in the fun mountain town of Midway, Utah where you can explore the winter wonderland of Heber Valley.
 
2.) Homestead Crater Resort has the best fudge
We love diving, but we are also all big dessert fans here at OWDT. The fudge shop in Midway, Utah is Jill’s favorite…in the world! (And Jill has been taste testing across the globe!)
 
1.) Homestead Crater is a natural phenomenon to behold
The crater is over 10,000 years old and was formed when snow from the Wasatch Mountains got trapped approximately 2 miles beneath the Earths surface. As it melted, the water bubbled towards the surface, creating the volcano like cave structure around the crater. When you do your open water dives, take a minute to float on the surface of the clear, warm water. On a winter day, you can watch the snow fall into the pool through the opening at the top of the dome and appreciate the natural wonder all around you.

Pool
POOL NIGHT ~ Once a month, we open our pool for divers to come in after hours and splash around. This is a self guided review (there won't be an instructor on duty) but gives you a chance to set up your gear, blow bubbles, and keep things fresh between trips. If you can't make it to Pool Night, you can call us to book a Pool Workout whenever our pool is available.
 
The pool will be available from 6:00-9:00 pm on the following nights:

  • October 18th
  • November 19th
  • December 30th

Rather have an instructor help evaluate your skills to make sure you're actually doing it correctly? Then our Scuba Refreshers are the choice for you!

SCUBA REFRESHERS ~ If it’s been longer than 2 years since your last dive, then you’ll need a SCUBA REFRESHER. In this four hour class, instructors will share practical tips from their personal experience of diving and jump in the water with you to make sure you are comfortable setting up your gear, controlling your buoyancy and review your emergency skills. The class is offered three times each month, and is often required by a resort if you haven't been diving in a year. If you have been out of the water for longer than 10 years, you will need to schedule this class privately.
