Top best answers to the question «How long do polar bears stay underwater»

  • Polar bears will usually stay underwater for around a minute before needing to surface for a breath, although the longest dive recorded for a polar bear lasted 3 minutes and 10 seconds without surfacing! So, averaging it out, some say that a polar bear can hold its breath underwater for around 2 minutes or so.

A polar bear can stay underwater for 7- 9 minutes but they usually prefer to go for 6- 7 minutes...Its gives them enough time to hunt underwater...After 7 minutes they start struggling for air... While hunting they hold their breath for 1- 3 minutes and come up and as soon as they see their prey, they use their average capacity i.e. 5- 6 minutes...
