The Traditional Week of Tech Diving in the Baikal


We make tech dives all year round and even almost every day, but it is always more fun when there are like-minded people around, a team, who get their kicks from diving deep, diving to wrecks and in caves. There is always something to talk about, share experience, discuss and just enjoy diving in a good company.

As usual, we will be making daily dives - a boat to make return trips to Bolshiye Koty and Circum Baikal Railway grand walls and canyons. In Listvyanka we can make practice dives up to 100 metres deep. It has also become a tradition that during the tech week one can upgrade their diver and instructor qualifications from Nitrox to Trimix levels. The courses are delivered by Trimix Instructor IANTD Tatiana Oparina and Trimix Instructor Trainer TDI/SDI, IANTD & CMAS Gennady Misan.

In the framework of the tech week Gennady Misan and Tatiana Oparina are giving master classes in cold water deep diving. The master classes are either for back-mount or side-mount configuration. 

For those practicing side-mount - there are 10 and 12 Litres tanks available for mounting on the side. For those opting for a traditional configuration - twin tanks. Surely, stages, Oxygen, Nitrox, small tanks for inflation are available for everybody.

The number of tech week participants is unlimited, but better book in advance. We need to know how many twin tanks - stages, Helium, Oxygen are to be prepared in advance, how much sofnolime. Besides, this is high season and many hotels, including the most expensive/the cheapest ones are being booked right now.

Diving conditions: on  the surface - summer time, quite warm, often hot; the water closer to the surface gets as warm as +7+100 С, under the thermocline +4. Good visibility, decompression procedures in warmer water.

Join us! Let’s dive! Tech is for real divers! 

Tech week dates: July, 23-28, 2019.

One can quickly lose the skills. The habit to dive from a boat makes you relax. During the last three years, we haven’t had any deep trimix in Listvyanka. Time to catch up! (Gennadi’s comment: “That’s true. All the deep dives in the last three years were made from the safari boats”). And now, it is December again, the freest time to dive “for yourself”. Be it Covid or not, there is a lot of work in summer, as usual. So, the intensive preparation has begun! (Gennadi’s comment: “The idea is to dive VERY deep!”)



The two weeklong “coronavirus” diving safaris in June were technical ones. So, technical diving is always there. BaikalTek is a technical dive center, with Trimix facility TDI & IANTD. However, it does not mean that there is no place for recreation, photography, filming and other kinds of divers. The other way round: we pay attention to everyone’s need and interests, and are ready to accompany you in your diving any time.



The BaikalTek instructors often meet the seals under the ice because they dive often.  A ‘normal’ diver is rarely so lucky. Jean from Switzerland is one of the lucky guys. Though it was his first Olkhon Ice Safari at Lake Baikal, he saw a lot: huge ice shapes, moving ice mass, dancing planaria… and finally, a seal!
