Where to dive in Poland: The Baltic Sea

Diving in the Baltic Sea

You can definitely say one thing about diving in the Baltic Sea – it’s hard to compare it with any other experience. Water visibility is variable and its temperature is low enough that they require relevant diving experience and preparation. By far the biggest attraction of this reservoir are wrecks. Many of them are unique structures that have preserved in very good condition. They are the reason the Baltic Sea may be classified as one of the most interesting diving sites in Europe.

Diving conditions

It is difficult to clearly assess the visibility in the Baltic Sea. Definitely it is best in winter and depending on the conditions, it can reach up to 25 meters. In contrast, for example, in the Bay of Gdańsk, it does not exceed 15 metres. The temperature is also not uniform, but certainly water at greater depths is cold. It is worth to take care of warm, preferably dry suit, because at the depth of about 30 feet, you can expect a few ° c. The green hue of the water is also characteristic.

The main attraction of the Baltic Sea is wreck diving. Usually, the sunken ships are found at a depth of about 25 meters and diving takes place from boats. The most interesting specimen can be seen in the area of the Bay of Gdańsk and Władysławowo. In other places, you can find wrecks at different depths. Both these easily available, already a few meters deep, and those for technical divers, resting at the bottom of the about 40 to 70 feet under water. The most interesting wrecks include: Swanhild, Arngast, Mount Vernon, Groźny, Wicher.

Łukasz Głowacki

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.
