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.

Apart from the private safaris on "Myth" there surely were safaris for big groups of divers. We welcomed divers from Russia, Poland and China. For the first time in our career we hosted a Chinese group on a diving safari and it was new experience for us, which will hopefully have its continuation, because  the Chinese divers liked lake Baikal diving safari. The Poles are traditional guests at our lake Baikal safaris, as they come in different groups almost every year.
