Dry Suit Diving


SC-DRY

The Dry Suit Diver course

“When the shows become longer, the days shorter and the water gets colder – then the time for Dry Suit Diving has come.”

If you want to dive during the fall and winter in the colder climates, DRY SUIT DIVING is the course you should take. Visibility at these times of the year is usually excellent so it’s a great time to get out there.

The Cool Part

In your DRY SUIT DIVING program you will learn about the advantages of dry suit diving, different suits, valves, underwear and dry suit accessories.

During the 2 mandatory dives you will apply correct dry diving techniques and demonstrate the correct care and maintenance of a dry suit.
