Ice Diving at the White Sea

A diving trip to the White Sea in winter is a dive into a completely different underwater world with a fantastically transparent water, fabulously beautiful ice and the White Sea fauna, that is diverse in winter not less than it is in summer. Bubbles of air, exhaled by ice divers, flowing like mercury under the ice cover, the glare of the sun, dancing in the water and on the ice surface, underwater rocks and rifts and their inhabitants make ice diving at the White Sea so special! You'll get unforgettable impressions under the ice arch of the sea, watch amazing soft corals under the frozen sea surface with ice-hummocks and cavities.

In winter time our Dive Centre is one of the best places in the world to experience marine ice diving. We provide a well-established mobile ice camp, equipped with portable warm wooden cabins, for ice divers to feel comfortable on ice before and after the dive. The cabins are equipped with special sledges, on which they can easily be moved between dive sites with the help of snowmobiles.
