The PADI Dry Suit Diver course with AQUASUB SCUBA DIVING CENTRE

The PADI Dry Suit Diver course is designed to provide divers with the knowledge and skills necessary to safely use a dry suit for diving in colder water conditions. The course covers topics such as the advantages of dry suits, the types of dry suits, and how to properly don and doff a dry suit.

During the course, you will learn about the differences between dry suits and wetsuits, and the advantages of using a dry suit in cold water environments. You will also learn how to properly maintain and care for a dry suit, and how to properly don and doff the suit.

To enroll in the PADI Dry Suit Diver course, you must have a minimum of the PADI Open Water Diver certification or equivalent, and be at least 10 years old. The course typically includes both classroom and practical sessions, and culminates in several open water dives where you will apply the knowledge and skills you have learned while using a dry suit.

The PADI Dry Suit Diver course is an excellent opportunity for divers who want to extend their diving season and explore colder water environments. However, it is important to remember that dry suits require additional knowledge and skills to use safely, and should only be attempted by divers who are properly trained and prepared.

Becoming a dry suit diver allows you to expand your boundaries and dive more places, more often. This suit seals you off from the water and keeps you comfortable, even in surprisingly cold water.

Course Overview

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.
