The Crater

To make a reservation to soak and swim at the Utah Crater, please book online at utahcrater.com, and email [email protected] to schedule a diving experience.

One of the most unique activities you’ll ever experience in your lifetime, The Utah Crater is a geothermal hot spring that sits beneath a beehive-shaped limestone rock located on the Homestead Resort property. It is the largest mineral dome in the area and is approximately 55 feet high and 400 feet in diameter at the base.

Once inside, visitors can swim, scuba dive, snorkel, enjoy a therapeutic soak, or even take a paddle board yoga class. The Utah Crater is the only warm-water scuba diving destination in the continental US and attracts many diving enthusiasts and those wishing to get certified in a comfortable environment.

Over 10,000 years in the making, The Utah Crater likely formed when melting snow on the Wasatch Mountains seeped deep within the earth. Two miles below the surface, the earth’s interior heated the water. As it percolated upward, it picked up minerals, which were then deposited on the surface — eventually forming the volcano-shaped limestone deposit called The Homestead Crater.

Many decades ago, the warm water flowing from the mineral-rich hot springs was instrumental in the resort beginnings as a place where weary miners and travelers could bathe and soak away their aches and pains. The Homestead Crater was opened to the public on July 12, 1996. The calm, azure water maintains a year-round temperature of around 95 degrees, beckoning scuba divers, snorkelers, swimmers and mineral bathers, as well as those interested in seeing the inside of a geothermal hot spring. A deep layer of silt covers approximately 8,000 years of history about 65 feet down and on the bottom of the floor. An ongoing archeological research project has discovered thousands of coins and other interesting artifacts.
