Despite global warming, it will be sometime before our waters are as warm as the tropics. We offer ongoing PADI Drysuit Courses all year round. Drysuit training is a prerequisite for rentals from The Diving Locker, as well as most other dive facilities.
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.
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:
Clearly a dry suit is necessary along with your basic scuba equipment. Your PADI Instructor will explain other gear or equipment options you may need to dive comfortably with your dry suit. For example, proper undergarments or dry gloves to keep extra warm during your dives.
We run the PADI Drysuit Specialty Course almost every week! The class/pool session is held on either a Wednesday or Thursday, and the ocean dives are scheduled on a demand basis, either Saturday or Sunday.
