Deep freediving courses on Lake Sevan

Armenia is a beautiful mountainous country that attracts tourists with its nature and historical sights. Mountain peaks and valleys, ancient temples and magnificent Lake Sevan are places that once you’ve seen, will remain in the heart forever.

Lake Sevan, the pearl of Armenia, is the largest lake in the Caucasus. A huge reservoir of the purest fresh water, bordered by mountain ranges, is located at an altitude of 1900 meters above sea level. With its scale, grandeur and delicate colours, Lake Sevan is somewhat reminiscent of Lake Baikal.

The locals call Lake Sevan the sea. Like the sea, it can be gentle and quiet, but it can be harsh as well due to the height above sea level. However, there are practically no strong storms in Sevan, and in the morning the water surface is always calm. There are no undercurrents here. In the summer months, the surface of the water warms up to 21-22 degrees, and in sunny weather it is very warm and comfortable.

For us, freedivers, Sevan is interesting not only for its beauty, but also for its unique opportunities for apnoea diving: depths of up to 80 meters are available in the immediate vicinity of the coast.


And on the shore there is a modern cozy dive resort Altitude1900, offering its services to divers and freedivers!

Schedule

Morning: freediving gymnastics, diving session.

Day: lunch, tourist trips

Evening: lectures or relaxation, watching films about freediving in the cinema of the dive center under the open sky.

In addition to Tatev, we plan to visit the temples of Sevanavank, Noravank, Geghard, visit the archaeological museum in Areni and go to Dilijan - the green oasis of Armenia. We highly recommend to everyone who has the opportunity to stay one more day in Yerevan itself - to visit wonderful art or historical museums and enjoy Armenian cuisine.

Equipment

At the end of May, the mountain sun is already hot, but the water is still quite cool.
The predicted temperature by the end of May this year is 13-15 degrees.

Therefore, for diving we recommend a 7mm wetsuit, 7mm socks and 3-5mm gloves.
(Make sure your fins fit comfortably over the thick neoprene sock!).

In August-September, the water on the surface warms up to 19-22 degrees.
We recommend a 5mm wetsuit, neoprene socks and gloves (from 3mm thick).

We will have a freediving platform at our disposal, equipped with a counterballast system for deep diving. The platform serves as a great place to relax.

It is possible to rent equipment (wetsuits 5mm, masks, weight belts, fins).
To rent, you need to contact the organisers IN ADVANCE and make sure that the equipment that suits you is available! There are unlimited waist weights in the dive center.

You can choose a certification course or on-demand training. We always provide an individual approach to each of the participants, regardless of the level in freediving.
