Take the Ice Diver Course with East Coast Scuba & Watersports
Our instructors are very experienced in spending time on and under the ice. We look forward to passing on our knowledge and experience.
Ice diving is one of the most adventurous scuba specialties because you confront conditions and see beauty few others ever experience. Plus, you might get a chance to play with your exhaled bubbles on the bottom of the ice.
Teamwork is essential for ice diving, so you’ll start by learning the roles and responsibilities of support personnel, tenders and safety divers. You also discuss types of ice, site selection and preparation, the effects of cold, emergency procedures and handling equipment issues.
During three closely supervised ice dives, you’ll practice:
Using specialized ice diving equipment and safety lines.
Signals and communications along with line tending and line-securing techniques.
Handling problems and safety diver procedures.
