Warm water all year long. Great for a refresher or classes.  The uncovered
bay is excellent for low vis navigation practice. Suprisingly, the fish are
much bigger than I expected.  In particular, the Jacks seem big and fast
when the vis is low.  The fish were fun.

Bad. It's probably going to be a muck dive. If you're not part of a group,
call the Bonneville Seabase in advance to check on visibility and any
scheduled classes. You might be able to dive on other than their
"normal days", Thurs-Sun. Of course, the vis will be better if
you get in before a group shows up.

I went with son(initial open water) and wife(refresher).  Main building is
just a few steps from the warmest bay, which is covered by a greenhouse
like setup. The Gear up area is warm and protected.

About 40 min drive from Salt Lake City. Lots of snack foods, but pack a
lunch if you want real food.  No services nearby.
