Diving locations

Diving conditions

The water temperature in the Mazurian Lakes is pretty low, so it is important to take care of a dry suit. The visibility here is often better in the winter and can reach up to 15 feet away. During the summer, the visibility drops to 4 metres.

Lake Hańcza is the deepest Masurian lake. The depth of descent is 108.5 meters. This place is chosen by divers because despite the poor vegetation, many of them want to face the large depth. The rock formations occurring in the lake are also interesting.

Lake Mamry is known as the best place for diving in Masuria. It is located on the route of the Great Masurian Lakes and consists of six smaller, interconnected lakes. There are 33 islands within the lake, and one of its biggest attractions are underwater meadows. You can come across a variety of fish there, especially pikes.

In Lake Harsz, you can find amber. This is not a simple task, but the mere fact of their presence attracts many divers.

I’ve been diving for almost 10 years. The underwater world won my heart quite quickly. From the very beginning I wanted to be a good diver and partner, so I kept practising until I got a Master Scuba Diver PADI degree. I dive in hot and cold waters around the world. The thing I like most about diving is the sense of weightlessness and possibility to dive in the depths. I’m not too demanding when it comes to the landscapes, although I do enjoy their diversity, so I like diving in different places and conditions.
