In 2014, YPT brought in the first SCUBA diver to the DPRK, and we are now pleased to announce not only our first ever scheduled SCUBA diving group tour, but also our first trip into the North-East to originate and finish in Russia!
The trip starts with us arriving by our own means in Vladivostok before a day of diving in the Russian Far East. From there, we enter the Rason Special Economic Zone of North Korea by train. After two days checking out the SEZ we head to the lovely Mt. Chilbo area and the East Sea of Korea for two days of serious diving.
This is the first scheduled trip of its kind into the country and will be run at a very strict maximum of 12 participants. We will not be taking you on your average dive – all joiners to the trip must have at least a PADI open water certificate, and if you are in two minds about your diving skills we can take a look at your dive log book and make recommendations. But for divers everywhere, this will also be a chance of a lifetime!
