Ice diving obviously carries many inherent risks. Consequently this type of Specialty Diving activity is conducted by working in a close Team. Consequently The Teams work closely not only with each other, bu also with support personnel, tenders, and Safety Divers.
On the PADI Ice Diver Course you are under the ice to learn how to adapt your skills in this new environment. Skills such as control buoyancy, underwater navigation under the ice, Buddy Contact all take on more meaning. Additionally you will also need to learn how to keep in contact with the Lead Diver, as well as the Tenders for example, via Line Pulls.

Now you are a PADI ICE Diver: How cool is that?
Although some brave Ice Diver’s dive in a wetsuit, you’ll probably find that you are more comfortable in a Dry Suit. The PADI Dry Suit Specialty Diver course is a course you should do before a PADI ICE Diver Course. The PADI Dry Suit Course will get you familiar with using a dry suit and the unexpected surprises which can occur when you first start diving in one. Such as that moment when the air goes to your ankles, due to bad trim, and you find yourself heading very fast, feet first, towards the surface.
Furthermore, Rebreather diving is not confined to warm water either. The Poseidon MKVI and Se7en Rebreathers have been under the Ice. Hence the stunning photos of these Rebreathers on PADI IDC Diver Courses that are available.
And while you are expending your Specialty Diving skills, why not also take the PADI Rescue Diver Course? Remember Rescue Diver Certification is a prerequisite for your PADI Master Scuba Diver (MSD) Rating. Which will put you that one step closer to the coveted PADI Master Scuba Diver rating.
Remember: a good diver never stops learning ...
