Below is some of the scheduled instructor and technical diving courses

19.07.2017

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:

An unusual divesite - Methane Volcano - was explored. 4 km away from the mouth of the Selenga River, at the depth of 40 metres in the dull clay bottom (what else can be expected from a place next to the mouth of a big muddy river?) there is a huge methane volcano and a small volcanic crater.

It’s been quite a while since we last published our news. This surely does not mean that there wasn’t anу. A lot of things have happened, so many, that we did not even have the time to sort them all out in order to make a nice quality presentation about our safaris, programmes, course and so on.

Gennady Misan set a personal record having reached the depth of 160 metres (his previous record depth was 155 metres). Tatiana Oparina also beat her previous record of 156 metres, which was, moreover, Lake Baikal record deep dive and, possibly, world record of diving deep in very cold water. Thus, her new dive to 170 metres, which Tatiana made, is a new Lake Baikal record and, possibly, a new world record of diving deep in very cold water.
