During the winter months here in Michigan many divers think of warm diving destinations as their only option to get wet. For those who are ready to dress for the occasion there is another option, Ice Diving!!!!! Last year we were denied the opportunity to engage in this very different yet cool (literally) for of diving. A special certification is required to engage in Ice Diving as the overhead environment demands additional safe measures. If you’re already a certified Ice Diver or looking to take the class and join on in this great experience call the store at 248-549-0303 today and get your name added to the list. We’ll be finalizing our plans shortly and contacting those who are interested with all the details.
For students who will just be learning about ice diving you’ll learn everything you need to know how to plan, setup and execute ice diving safely. The course will cover all of the follow aspects of ice diving:
- Dive Gear Considerations
- Ice Diving Specific Safety Equipment
- Surface Safety
- Site Selection
- Required Ice Conditions
- Surface to Diver Communications
- Emergency Procedures
- Securing the Site After the Dive
- And more….
We look forward to seeing all of you excited enough to brave the cold and surf along the side of the ice few ever see.
