DRY SUIT DIVER SPECIALTY

Wanna stay warm and toasty on a dive? Then dive dry. Yes! Unlike a wetsuit, a dry suit seals you off from the outside water and that keeps you warm! Even in surprisingly cold water.

 

Prerequisites:

• PADI Open Water Diver or
• PADI Junior Open Water Diver
• Drysuit Diving Elearning

    THE FUN PART:

    Dry suits let you dive at more challenging dive sites, and extend your dive season. When you have the right cold water scuba diving attire, you can stand up to the elements and take advantage of the generally better visibility offered by winter months—especially at inland dive sites such as quarries, lakes, sinkholes and caves etc. As a dry suit diver, you’re equipped to scuba dive some of the world’s incredible dive sites in the world’s cooler regions that are best enjoyed in a dry suit even in their warmer months.

    What You Learn

    Get introduced to the different types of suits so you can make a very informed decision if considering purchasing a dry suit. You will gain the knowledge and skills to safely put on, dive with, take off and store a dry-suit.

    • Dry suit buoyancy control skills
    • Dry suit maintenance, storage and basic repair
    • How to select appropriate undergarment (fleece or overall-type garments worn under the dry suit)
