Prerequisites:
-Minimum Advanced Open Water certified for the full course (Open Water for the Adventure Dive)
-Drysuit Certified
-Minimum 18 years old

Recommended:
-Cold water experience
-Lots of drysuit dives
-A certain sense of craziness

Learn how to work as a team - including acting as surface support, line tender, and safety diver. Learn more than you cared to know about ice, how to get a site ready, and how to deal with emergency procedures related to colder diving. And, of course, put it all into practice, and go for some dives under the ice!

While we would typically supply BBQ on the ice, this will be determined closer to the date based on COVID recommendations at that time.

Our instructors on this course regularly dive in overhead environments, so you'll likely learn a little bit more than you thought you would on how to really plan for a dive under ice!

Session 1: Saturday, February 12 - Sunday, February 13, 2022

Sesson 2: Saturday, March 12 - Sunday, March 13, 2022

February Session:

Thursday,

The Dive Shop is not new at running these courses; we have successfully done so for many, many years. In the past, we have canceled classes due to extreme weather conditions. This, however, is a unique situation. We have made this call as we saw fit for our staff and participants.

As always - if you have any questions, comments, feedback - we would love to hear from you.
