Beginning in October or November when local waters get a little cold to dive in, FFS&S travels to Utah to dive “The Crater”. At the Crater, we can certify people in a variety of classes and have a great time. FFS&S will resume going to the Crater in Midway, UT in October or November, depending on water temperatures. In 2021/22, our dates to go to the Crater are as follows:
October 16th & 17th – November 13th & 14th – December 11th & 12th – January 1st & 2nd – January 29th & 30th February 19th & 20th – March 19th & 20th – April 9th & 10th – May 7th & 8th – May 21st & 22nd
Where: Midway, Utah (45 minutes east of Salt Lake City)
Travel Time: Nine hours +/-. If you want to ride-share, let us know.
