PADI Drysuit Specialty

EXPERIENCE “COLD WATER DIVING,” WITHOUT THE “COLD”


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!

What You Will 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:

  • Putting on and taking off your dry suit with minimal assistance.
  • Mastering buoyancy control using your dry suit.
  • Dive safety procedures when using a dry suit.

Upcoming Courses

These are upcoming drysuit class/pool sesssions. The ocean dives are run on either a Saturday or Sunday throughout the month. Please contact us for available dates.
