Package Details

The White Sea will be the base for this week long ice diving holiday. Whether you have been ice diving before or it is a new experience the package can be open to any qualified divers although AOWD with dry suit experience/Sport diver qualifications are preferable. If you are not already a qualified ice diver or have at least 5 ice dives under your weight belt then an ice diving course will be recommended on arrival. Once qualified you will be experiencing visibility of up to 50 metres, ice hummocks and rifts, amazing soft corals and a great variety of fish and sea life. Heated huts are placed over the ice for your comfort and there even heated toilets and a “restaurant” cabin on the ice for lunch! This is one of our most popular diving packages, narrowly ahead of diving in Iceland as here you actually dive under the ice.

  • Flights from Heathrow or Manchester to Kuusamo via Helsinki
  • Car transfer to White Sea (approx 7 hours)
