You need to have at least OWD certification or higher to participate in dive packages. For example Rummu quarry is suitable for beginners and max depth there is only 14m. Shipwrecks are at the depths between 6-40m. As rule of thumb we dive to maximum of 40m deep to keep you safe during your vacation. For technical divers we can organize special trips where you can make deeper dives.
Please bring your Certification Cards with you and DAN or other diving insurance, if you have it! Insurance is strongly recommended!
Most of the historical shipwrecks are under the protection of Estonian Heritage Board and we have obtained all neccessary permissions to organize such dives. During the trip you will be briefed about diving regulations and you need to fill a list of paperwork regarding safety of Heritage Protection and your Health status.
Water temperature in Baltic Sea is cold, so if possible you should bring your drysuit, cold water regulator and other accessories what will keep you warm & comfortable. In July-August water is getting warmer and diving in Wetsuit + Shorty (5- 7mm) wetsuit is OK. We always provide weights and single 12L or 15L tanks for clients as part of the package. If you want to dive with double tanks, you should bring your own set. Rental equipment is also available but you should inform us what you need at least 1 week before your trip!
It´s good to bring along windproof Jackets & Trousers and also a Towel to use between and after the dives. Also bring a Hat that would keep your ears in good condition for the following dives.
