Do you want to stay warm? Do you want to extend your diving season? So… dive dry. Even in surprisingly cold water, a dry suit insulates you and keeps you in comfort. In the coldest regions of the world you can enjoy beautiful dives and, in some areas, in the colder months the conditions are even better. Learning to use a dry suit allows you to expand your limits, and dive in other locations and more often.
If you are at least 10 years old and are at least a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver, you can enroll in the Dry Suit Diver course.
The first things you will discover are the style of dry suit and undersuit that best suits you and the type of diving you do. Then, you will learn how to take care of everything. During two dives, in addition to one in confined water, you will practice:
Put on and take off your dry suit with minimal help.
Master buoyancy control using your dry suit.
The procedures for diving safely with your dry suit.
Thanks to the Dry Suit Diver course, you can get college credit. Ask your instructor how to do it.
Additionally, the first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course can be credited as an Adventure Dive for your Advanced Open Water Diver certification - ask your instructor how to get credit.
Obviously you will need a dry suit along with your basic equipment. Our PADI Dive Center will provide you with everything you need to take the course.
You can sign up for the online course, and start right away.
