Arctic Circle Tourist Centre
March 21, 2015 21:28


There is an organization on the shore of Nilmoguba, near the Arctic Circle, that is least expected to be met at the Arctic border – a diving centre. It has been existing for already 10 years - not only as a diving club, but also as a tourist centre with decent excursion services: from trips to nearby islands (with fishing and overnight stays) to a three-day tour to Solovki.

Those who are interested in local attractions such as the legendary White Sea Biological Station of Moscow State University or the village of Chernaya Rechka isolated from the outer world can also come to the “Polar Circle”. But the most important and the most tempting offer is, of course, diving (summer and winter) in the White Sea.

The local diving centre can receive and accommodate up to 25 people, providing services of three dozen White Sea dive sites. The centre has a PADI certificate (certificate of Professional Association of Diving Instructors, one of the largest international certifying associations), so the safety of divers is taken seriously here. No one will let you dive without training (a minimum level for summer diving - OWD PADI or similar). You can, however, try the so-called intro dive - an introductory dive with a safety rope and under the supervision of an instructor. An intro dive will cost 3.5-4.5 thousand roubles (depending on the season). The price includes equipment rental and detailed instructions. Those who want to dive independently should take a course and receive a certificate right here in the “Polar Circle”.

Even experienced divers will have to obtain a certificate “Dry Suit” for winter dives. A “Dry” course will cost 8,000 roubles, and learning from scratch - 21,000 roubles. “Polar Circle” regularly organizes expeditions to shipwrecks and safari of the similar kind. In addition, the tourist centre organizes annual children’s camps. These go without scuba diving and are conventional, educational camps. Each session has its topic, but somehow all children are familiarized with the nature of the White Sea. Another live attraction of the diving centre is tame polar white whales.
