When the weather turns cold and the local waters turn to ice, many divers pack up their dive gear and wait for the return of summer. Some hasten its arrival with a trip to warmer climates while winter maintains its grip on the north. But the arrival of winter does not need to mean the end of local diving. In this program, you will learn the techniques, equipment requirements and reasons for safely venturing below the ice in one of diving’s most challenging, and rewarding, activities: Ice Diving. Join Eco-Photo Explorers as they explain the “hows” and “whys” of ice diving and introduce you to some of the best places to dive beneath the ice.
