Diving with a dry suit



Do you want to stay warm? Do you want to extend your diving season? So… dive dry. Even in surprisingly cold water, a drysuit insulates you and keeps you comfortable. In the colder regions of the world you can do beautiful diving and, in some areas, the conditions are even better in the colder months. Learning to use a dry suit allows you to expand your limits, and dive in other locations more often.
If you are at least 10 years old and 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 drysuit and undersuit best suited to 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 waters, you will practice:
Put on and take off your drysuit with minimal help.
Master buoyancy control using your drysuit.
The procedures for diving safely with your dry suit.
Thanks to the Dry Suit Diver course, you will be able to obtain school credits. Ask your instructor how to do it.
Additionally, the first dive on this PADI Specialty Diver course can be credited as an Adventure Dive towards your Advanced Open Water Diver certification – ask your instructor how to get credit.

Obviously a dry suit will be needed along with your basic equipment. Our PADI Dive Center will provide you with everything you need to complete the course.
