Diving in Poland

Poland, in spite of appearances, offers lots of interesting dive sites. While diving in Poland in the Baltic Sea, you can admire a variety of ship and aircraft wrecks.

Diving conditions

The best visibility is ensured when diving during the period from early spring to early autumn. In some Polish tanks, visibility is even up to 15 metres. Water is not as clear as in the seas of southern Europe, but it also offers a large amount of interesting vegetation and various species of fish. Water temperatures are rather cool and they change depending on the time of year and type of tank. In the summer, they can reach up to 23°C. In winter, ice diving is popular in Poland.

The Baltic Sea offers many interesting wrecks. Among them, we can find both ships and aircraft. With the low salinity and low temperatures, the wrecks are preserved in very good condition.
In Poland, there are many diving centers and bases. Besides the provinces of Łódź, Świętokrzyskie and Silesian, you will find at least one place to dive in every province. There is also a number of diving schools in the country.

In addition to the Baltic Sea, Poland offers great lakes – especially in the Mazury region and in Greater Poland. Located in the Masurian, Hancza Lake will satisfy advanced divers. It is the deepest lake in Poland with bottom covered with boulders. Diving in inactive quarries will give you the greatest visibility underwater. One such place is Zakrzówek in the vicinity of Krakow with wreck of bus and car resting on its bottom. In Greater Poland, the popular diving resort is the Budzisławskie Lake.

Both beginners and advanced divers can find great dive sites in Poland suitable for their level of training.

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.
