Swim Inside A Utah Natural Hot Spring Crater

Salt Lake City, Utah, United States

Experience hosted by Cisco

  1. 4 hours
  2. Hosted in English

What you'll do

We will start our family friendly journey up the canyon as we listen to some tunes and chat as we drive through an iconic Utah road.

Once we get to the crater, we will go over some safety tips and enjoy a one hour dip in one of the coolest and most hidden gems in the world. (Water is a consistent 96 degrees. Not as hot as a hot-tub but warm enough to be relaxing). Great for people of all ages as there isn't any hiking or climbing involved!

Once our dip in the crater is over, we will head back down to SLC and stop at THE BEST chocolate factory in the city (it is soooo good that they once had their own TV show) where we will drink the best hot (dark) chocolate your lips have ever tasted.

Other things to note:
Don't know how to swim? Don't worry, for safety reasons, everyone is required to wear a life jacket. Have little children in your family? Don't worry, we will have life jackets for their little sizes. Are you afraid of water? Don't worry, there is no wild life in the water so we are all safe!

I was born in water (no, really) so technically, I've been swimming since birth! Since then, I have snorkeled in various parts of the world and I can truly say, this natural crater is the most unique and relaxing experience you'll ever have. Join me on this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

    Great experience! We learned some history about Salt Lake City on the way there and had the best hot chocolate I’ve had (and I’m a hot chocolate queen). Cisco was extremely friendly and made the drive fun! Hot Springs weren’t too hot so it was nice being able to swim around in it for an hour. Definitely recommend this adventure if you’re visiting Salt Lake City!

    Hosts unresponsive to communication and you can find the excursion for a lesser cost and easier met up with other hosts if you are not staying in Salt Lake. I try to avoid negative posts but communication is essential to business.

    Overall, a fine experience. A shuttle ride out to the Hot Springs, spend 45-50 mins swimming (likely with many scuba divers and other swimmers), drive back to town, get gelato or hot chocolate at an eclectic shop and return downtown. Everyone was pleasant on the tour and the guide, but it wasn't an *overly* exciting experience.

    Awesome trip. The hot spring was very relaxing and spent more than enough time to enjoy it. Would highly recommend renting the goggles. Our host, Steve made the trip easy and answered all our questions. The group we went with was friendly and had great conversations. Also the gelato/coffee shop has some very good hot chocolate and excellent gelato. Overall would highly recommend the trip!

    Steve was AWESOME. So warm and personable. And the actual swim experience was just neat! I said “wooooow” at least as dozen times as I bopped around like a cork. Definitely would recommend for something different and very peaceful

    We really enjoyed our trip to the hot springs crater. Steve was a great host. We learned so much from him about SLC and Utah. It was a unique experience. I would recommend for anyone visiting the area.
