Under ice [Constant weight]

65 m (213 ft) — Konstantin Novikov (Russia), geographic North Pole, April 13, 2015 (North Pole Freediving Challenge 2015). Total dive time: 2 min 12 sec.

This is also the absolute record for the deepest dive under ice [Freshwater | Ocean | CCR | Open-circuit].
One or more dives have reportedly taken place at equal or deeper depths at Rana, Norway, and Lohja, Finland. Although both sites in Scandinavia begin as ice dives, the divers quickly enter extensive cave systems. During winter conditions, the ice ceiling creates a cave-like environment from the moment of immersion. With the added cave penetration, we consider these dives as extreme ice dives.
