The water here can get quite chilly, which is why most of us dive in a drysuit year round! It is possible to dive in a wetsuit from June – September, but a drysuit is still highly recommended.
If you haven’t dove in a drysuit before, you will need to complete the drysuit orientation. You will do some additional pool training which will teach you how to use a drysuit in a confined water setting, and how to handle the changes in buoyancy. You will then get to use the drysuit for your ocean dives.
Drysuit Rental – $75 (If you’ve already completed the pool orientation)
Drysuit Upgrade – $99.95 (Includes additional pool training, and drysuit rental for all 5 of your ocean dives)
Should you decide to upgrade to the full PADI Drysuit Specialty later on, you would just pay an additional $199.95, and come out for two more ocean dives.
All scuba equipment (including wetsuit) is provided for your course.
Students need to provide or purchase their own mask, snorkel, and regulator mouthpiece (special packages available).
A Dive Light and Dive Computer are required for this course, both of which are available for purchase or rent.
Computers can be rented for $25, and Lights for $20.
