PADI Dry Suit Diver Speciality
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 around the UK and 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.
What Will You Learn?
The first thing you’ll discover is which dry suit style and accompanying undergarments are right for you and the diving you’ll do. Then you’ll 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.
Dive safety procedures when using a dry suit.
As long as you are a PADI Open Water Diver (or equivalent) you can begin this Speciality Diver course.
You must be a minimum of 10 years old.
Similar to many PADI courses, the PADI Dry Diver Specialty course is a self-study course.
You'll receive quality training materials from PADI, specifically designed to teach you what you need to know.
Classroom sessions with a qualified PADI Instructor will ensure that you fully understand the information.
Confined Water Dives
You'll complete a Confined Water session, in order to learn how to use a dry-suit safely and properly, ready for your Open Water dives.
Open Water Dives
