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:

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!

In general, places and dates are in the schedule on our web-site. We prefer organized groups, but there are places for single divers, who can join organized groups or we might arrange a combined safari hosting such divers.

See you in the Baikal safari and have a great diving!

We planned to finish mounting a new engine and generator on our safari boat Valeriya. The testing was complete, State Ship Register seriously examined all equipment and approved of its operation, so in the third decade of May we started our first safari. This safari was only for BaikalTek members, as no matter how State Ship Register is strict, our BaikalTek testing is still more important.
