Winter diving sport in Latvia

Traditionally, the scuba diving season in Latvian waters lasts from May to September and lasts for 5 months, the information is presented by the scuba diving club "Diving", Diving instructor - coach Valters Preimanis. Scuba diving enthusiasts often close the active diving season with October, because they believe that scuba diving temperatures do not allow it.

Winter diving allows you to dive under the ice

Not every winter in Latvia there is an independent layer of ice, and therefore divers are enthusiastic about using ice diving opportunities. Winter diving also has great benefits, as plant particles that are in the water sink to the base of the water body. In Latvian lakes, from a visibility distance of 2 meters in summer, we get 3-5 times better visibility, or water clarity, in winter.
