PADI Drysuit Diver Speciality

What is the PADI Drysuit Diver Speciality Course

Would like to stay warm and toasty on a dive and stay dry? Unlike a wetsuit, a dry suit seals you off from the outside water and that keeps you warm! Even in surprisingly cold water.

The Fun Part

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 quarries and lakes. 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.
