Specialities PADI - Don't like being cold? Here's your answer

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 sites 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 in more places, more often.

If you are at least 10 years old and certified as a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver or higher, you can enroll in the Dry Suit Diver course.

The first thing you’ll discover is which dry suit style and accompanying undergarments are right for you and the diving you will do. Then you eill 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.

- Diving safety procedures when using a dry suit.

Also, the first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification – ask your instructor about earning credit.
