Ice Diving UK

Ice diving is one of the most adventurous scuba specialities. Learn the roles and responsibilities of support personnel, tenders and safety divers. See beauty few others ever experience.

Ice diving can be a serene and beautiful aspect of scuba diving. As a winter activity, diving under ice offers the opportunity to enjoy sport diving year-round. Diving under ice presents hazards not common to the open water diver, and special training is required. The purpose of this course is to acquaint the diver with the hazards associated with being an ice diver, as well as how to plan and execute an ice dive.

The course involves a theory section that you can complete online in advance, followed by a day of practice in Scotland, where not only will you get two dives under the ice, but also get to learn the practical safety management and rescue skills side of being an ice diver for real.

This is an awesome experience, one that will stay with you for a long time. It heightens your senses, preparing you to dive in a safe and controlled manner under the ice.

I am a passionate adventurer, loving being in the mountains walking, climbing, scrambling as much as I love being under the water exploring shipwrecks, mines and caverns, or in search of treasure in the depths. My real passion lies in combining mountains and water and as such you’ll often find me either in the mountains altitude diving, or in the mountains ice diving. Both exhilarating and peaceful – allowing me to regenerate the inner me, whilst pushing myself physically and mentally.
