Why dive dry - simply to stay warm.  No one said diving had to be cold or wet.  More often than not, in colder waters, dry suit diving can be the difference between experiencing multiple dives in one day and telling the other divers what they missed on the dives they were too cold to make! 



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.

In addition to reviewing dive safety procedures when using a dry suit, you’ll learn:

    • Which dry suit style and accompanying undergarments are right for you.
    • How to take care of your dry suit.
    • Putting on and taking off your dry suit with minimal assistance.
    • Mastering buoyancy control when using a dry suit.
