Climb through a chainsaw-cut hole cut in the thick Antarctic ice (wearing your very thickest wet suit) and descend into a breathtakingly cold and heart-poundingly beautiful world of endless cyan blue depths. This is a quite unbelievable escape from the real world, where penguins and seals flit through the darkness below, crisp, clean ice forms unearthly shapes and sunlight shatters into rainbows as it passes through the frozen surface. Ice divers can always be sure of a unique experience, as no two dive sites are ever the same and the constant movement of ice floes, the changing temperatures and slowly-morphing ice formations make every new plunge below the surface a voyage of thrilling discovery.
