Catch up with the MARES / SSI / rEvo Dive Expedition Team on the Mares blog!

The MARES / SSI / rEvo Dive Expedition Team’s first trip is underway.

So far they have had to adjust to the freezing temperatures of Siberia, and have left the comfort of their hotel in Irkutsk for the harsh landscape of Lake Baikal, diving under ice which is at times 5-6 meters thick!

They have seen how challenging these extreme conditions can be for both the equipment and the diver, and they even lost a trailer en route to their dive destination on Day 5, but teamwork and expertise have helped them overcome the obstacles they have faced along the way.

Keep up with all the latest news from their expedition and see their incredible pictures on the Mares blog:
