The beauty of the underwater world of Gamov peninsula area is more outstanding than its over-water landscape. Every meter of the depth reveals new associations of sea organisms giving the divers an opportunity to observe peculiarities of their behavior. Those who can't dive can only stay ashore gazing after divers and watch pictures made under the water later.

The Sea of Japan and the area of Gamov Peninsula  have a complex underwater relief and perfect aerodynamics. The water is very transparent and rich in pleasant undercurrents and undersea fauna.
It is known that water temperature is a determining factor in diving planning. Its deviations are significant and account for -1+4 in winter, +4+10 in spring, +12+24 in summer and +20+8 in autumn.
Even in August the temperature of water on the surface is +24 and is cold when you dive in. The first layer of transition occurs at the depth of 14-16 meters and temperature drops to +15+12. The second transition layer is observed at the depth of 30-35 meters where the temperature goes down to +7+4. The values are not absolute as from time to time water layers are mixed due to wind and undercurrents and the borders are moving up.
