Wanna stay warm and toasty on a dive? Then dive dry. Yes! Unlike a wetsuit, a dry suit seals you off from the outside water and keeps you much warmer! Even in surprisingly cold water.
Dry suits let you dive more challenging dive sites, and extend your dive season. When you have the right cold water scuba diving attire, you can stand up to the elements and take advantage of the generally better visibility offered by winter months—especially at inland dive sites such as quaries, lakes, sinkholes and caves etc. As a dry suit diver, you’re equipped to scuba dive some of the world’s incredible dive sites in the world’s cooler regions that are best enjoyed in a dry suit even in their warmer months.
Gain the knowledge and skills to safely put on, dive with, take off and store a dry-suit. Get introduced to the different types of suits so you can make a very informed decision if considering purchasing a dry suit.
Practical skills you’ll master in this course:
Scuba diving with a dry suit is useful when diving many types of dive sites. A dry suit is necessary when ice diving (or for the Ice Diver Course) and sometimes while altitude diving (or for the Altitude Diver Course). Many technical divers wear dry suits on almost every dive due to the length of the time spent underwater. The longer the diver is in the water, the more thermal protection is required. If technical diving is something that interests you, check out Discover Tec Diving.
