Below is some of the scheduled instructor and technical diving courses

25.12.2018

We dive Lake Baikal all year round. That’s why:

1. Recreational diving courses take place any time, all year round (there are open-water areas in the Baikal all year round), thus, these do not require booking long in advance.

2. Ice Diving courses take place from February till beginning of April.

3. Technical diving courses take place from May till January (when the lake is not covered in ice). 

4. Cave diving courses take place all year round. 

If you are interested in taking Technical, Cave or Instructor courses with BaikalTek Instructors you have to keep in mind we are busy with safaris and courses, so the dates are to be agreed on in advance.

However, there are some fixed dates and places for Instructor, Technical and Cave courses, which you might find convenient. Here they are:

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!

And I was really lucky. One teacher is good, two is even better. And two best teachers make it precious. Gennady Misan and Tatiana Oparina, thank you for your making all the long way and coming to share your knowledge, experience and wisdom! You did not only answer all our questions, but you also analyzed the situations, and you gave solution options and practical examples. Thank you for your high-grade professionalism, objective evaluation, thorough debriefing and promptly encouragement that was inspiring and empowering. Thanks for the interesting and useful communication. Living on the shore of Teletskoye Lake feels like living on another planet. When you came, it felt like the guests from a similar neighbor planet visited us, the same kind of people, and that was great! A return visit is ours!
