Polar bears make shallow dives when stalking prey, navigating ice floes, or searching for kelp.Polar bears usually swim under water at depths of only about 3-4.5 m (9.8-14.8 ft.). They can remain submerged for more than one minute. Maximum dive duration is unknown; however the longest polar bear dive observed to date lasted a total of 3 minutes and 10 seconds covering a distance of 45 to 50 m (148–164 ft.) without surfacing.
