Season of year 2006 is almost over, but ship "Myth" has just held its first safari. Mostly we had smaller groups, so we've been using such vessels as "Merlin" and "Mars:; or we had extremely big groups which required ships like "Valery". Now, from 1st to 6th of October, we had Plosh group of divers "Nautica", headed by Janusz Solarz There were 8 of them - perfect group for Yaroslavets"
New Year of 2006 we met at Baikal on the ship in the diving Safari. Yes, that's right! Nobody wonders when people celebrate New Year on the cruises somewhere in Thailand or Maldives. Why is Baikal any worse?
A new record in deep diving at Baikal was made by instructor TDI Gennady Misan, who made a dive on 140 meters! Gennady used 2 mixes of trimix fro a dive and 3 nitrox for decompression. See photographs and article "The record dive in Lake Baikal".
First winter ice jeep-safari of the season has finished! Participants: club "BaikalTek". The road from Irkutsk to Island Olkhon was traditional: with stops for the eating of pozy (buryat national cuisine) and the ritual of bringing a victim to Baikal's god Burkhan when entering the ice (it's spraying of vodka). We lived in the guest hall of Nikita Bencharov in Khuzhir.
