Now it is permitted to conduct a extreme dive in the most salty waters of our planet – The Dead Sea. However only experienced divers will have opportunity to see the salty crystals with own eyes . Well such restrictions are quite obvious , as scuba diving in the Dead Sea can be a real tough experience to pass and this is mainly because such salty water have enormous buoyancy force , which means that the equipment should have a greater weight than usual and can reach up to 60 kg. Beside it the water can damage eyes in case of contact with them . But even professionals are required to pass theoretical and practical training before conducting a dive. After 2 days of diving you’ll get a certificate and be sure you boasting among your fellow divers will be quite easy thing to do as not every diver have such opportunity to see the bottom of the Dead Sea.
Diving is allowed only on Wednesday and Thursday . Prices for these type of diving vary , but I’ve checked the official website and it says
The Dead Sea diving experience cost is US$ 1,200 per diver.
