Antarctic Scuba

Beneath the frozen expanse of Antarctic ice, life exists in places we never knew could sustain it. The weird and wonderful organisms being discovered underwater in Antarctica reveal extraordinary things about our planet’s deep past and even the wider universe.

In the icy depths, cutting-edge subaquatic research facilities are at the forefront of unravelling these mysteries. Equipped with advanced features like aquariums, dive facilities, recompression chambers, and laboratories, these state-of-the-art facilities allow dives to continue year-round. In this filter, you’ll be one of our intrepid divers, who access the water through holes cut in the sea ice during the winter.
