PADI Dry Suit Specialty Course

Who should take this course?

Want to stay warm? Want to extend your scuba diving season? Then dive dry. A dry suit seals you off from the water and keeps you comfortable, even in surprisingly cold water. There is incredible diving in the world’s cooler regions and in some areas, conditions are even better in colder months. Becoming a dry suit diver allows you to expand your boundaries and dive more places, more often.

If you’re at least 10 years old and certified as a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver or higher, you can enroll in the Dry Suit Diver course.

What will you learn?

The first thing you’ll discover is which dry suit style and accompanying undergarments are right for you and the diving you’ll do. Then you’ll learn how to take care of your dry suit. During two dives, in addition to a confined water dive, you’ll practice:

  • Picking the right drysuit style and undergarments for your environment
  • Proper care and maintenance of your drysuit
  • Putting on and taking off your dry suit with minimal assistance.
  • Mastering buoyancy control using you suit.
  • Dive safety procedures when using a dry suit.
