Antarctic Diving 7 - Entrance / Exit Hole

Back to gallery    Back to thumbnails    Next     Previous

Just got into the water and ready to go down - I'm already down to take this picture. Note the ice blocks that have been cut to make the dive hole stuck up against the ice, these are pushed under the ice with a pole as they're too heavy and difficult to get out of the dive hole.

This kind of diving is really like entering another world, more so than anything I've ever done. A great thing to do at the end of a dive when you have a little air left is to go up to the dive hole and take off your weight belt. You're then very buoyant and so can go back under the ice and walk around upside down on the underneath of the ice, if you lose your footing, you fall - up! Highly recommended to anyone who has ever thought about walking on the ceiling.
