On this tour we will visit various dive sites. Most of the dives, or maybe even all of them will proceed from the shore. It can be demanding to get in and out of the water. Stones on the beach can be slippery, and waves (in the surf zone) might be challenging. Divers who suffer from knee problem or whose physical fitness is limited might not be able to join these dives.
Even when arranging the diving activities in slack water, (strong) currents must be expected. Some dives on this trip will be night dives and will take place in total darkness. Every diver has to bring a dive torch, as well as a backup light! The dive torch should be taken on every dive.
Maximum depths for most dives are 30 m (100 ft), and can increase to 40 m (130 ft) only if we dive along the Lophelia reefs. Visibility varies from 5 to 20 m (17 to 65 ft). The water in the Trondheimfjord is dark, caused by a thick (1 to 4 meters or 3 to 12 ft), dark-brown layer of fresh water covering the “clear” sea water. This is also one of the reasons why there are so many deep-water species in shallow waters here. We strongly recommend using a dry suit for diving.
We provide steel tanks with DIN double valves (200 bar) and a volume of 10, 12, or 15 liters as well as lead weight in different sizes. Oxygen equipment in case of diving emergencies is available during the whole trip.
The water temperature is around 8 to 12°C (46 to 54°F).
