One of the coolest specialties that you can follow! Of course, diving involves 'certain risks' under certain circumstances, but we will teach you how to deal with this specialty. Ice diving is done in a team: you work with linetenders, stand-by divers and a dive team. That makes ice diving not only very adventurous, but also the cosiest specialty right away.
Explore the unique underwater landscape that you can only find under ice. You can be one of the few who have ever dived under a hard ceiling of ice. Imagine the face of your Divemaster when you show your PADI Ice Diver certification on your next trip to the Caribbean Sea.
You may get the opportunity to play under the ice layer with your exhaled bubbles, or you have the chance to try out the unique sport where you go skiing upside down on the ice ceiling.
For logistical and safety reasons, the Ice diver specialty is only given on the Vinkeveense plassen or the Noorderplassen in Almere and only if the circumstances permit ...
