Hi everyone
Here you go, my recent diving in Canada but this time under the ice ! ! This place between Ontario and Quebec border! Quarry called Morrison, they have Airplane, submarine and others stuff. shallow point around 1mtr and Deeper point around 70mtr. We're normally cut the holes at 1 mtr of water and swim through until we reach 2 mtr of water. basically the dives procedures is cave diving rules. run the main line from entry point as a permanent line, thickness of the ice around 20 inches. 

At the Hole

Exit to the hole ( as you can see the main line )

Somewhere!

Post after the dive!

I keep diving during winter in Canada, only time stop me diving when its winter storm or very very cold days i mean -30'C outside, and that not fun!  its look scary diving in any overhead enviroment mean ice, wreck or caves but you need to be solid as a diver and  have good training and educated what it right r wrong. Diving in cold enviroment especially either ice or open surface can be really hazard, most common is malfuntion gear such as freeflow, drysuit valve stuck open or bad gear. For your information, before I submerge underwater, im normally make sure all my hoses is clear ( S- Drill), bubble check n etc, only took few minute. Thia is the  protocol I follow i going diving pretty much everywhere.

It's depends of surface temperature if air temp colder I'm talking around -30'C up.. yes the surface with from but very  tinny tinny layer of ice.  Since we cut the holes 2 mtr x 2 mtr so changes of surface frozen less happening. Also if the air temperature colder like -30'C , we basically go back to bed and cuddle the blanket!  ;) ;) ;) ;)

Hi

the airplane not from air crash or what so ever,  they sunked on purpose ! I guess they have too much big toys kicking around  [-( [-(, Regarding with the condition is no current since this site is a quarry.
