Despite global warming, it will be sometime before our waters are as warm as the tropics. For those who want to experience “cold water diving,” while minimizing the “cold water.”
The Diving Locker offers ongoing PADI Drysuit Courses. Drysuit training is a prerequisite for rentals from The Diving Locker, as well as most other dive facilities.
The PADI Drysuit Specialty includes a book, class and pool session, and two ocean dives (one day of diving), with an Instructor. Upon completion, you will receive a PADI Drysuit Diver Certification card. This certification will allow you to rent and use a drysuit anywhere in the world.
You can also choose to do only the Drysuit Pool Session, which will teach you how to use a drysuit in a confined water setting, and how to handle the changes in buoyancy. Doing the Pool session with us will allow you to rent and use drysuits from The Diving Locker. (You can also choose this option if you wish to upgrade from a wetsuit to a drysuit for one of our courses.)
Course price includes training materials, drysuit rental, and use of basic scuba gear. Personal gear (mask, snorkel, fins, boots, and gloves) are available at a reduced rental price.
Drysuit Pool Session: $99.95 (Can upgrade to the specialty for an additional $199.95)

>> Class and Pool Session : usually every Thursday starting at 6pm (optionally Wednesday if there is MOD1 on Thursday).
