Who should take this course?
A dry suit mainly seals you off from the water and keeps you comfortable, even in surprisingly cold water. If you’re at least 10 years old and certified as a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver or higher, you can enrol in the Dry Suit Diver course.
We also offer Dry Suit Diver as a package with PADI Open Water (dive dry from the start) and PADI Advanced Open Water Diver courses.
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
The course will give you a greater insight when you decide to purchase a suit of your own, helping you make the right purchase from the start.
How can you start learning now?
Stop by your local Diveworld centre to enrol in the course and pick up a PADI Dry Suit Diver Manual. By reading the manual and completing the knowledge reviews, you’ll be ready to get into the water with your instructor and start practicing with your dry suit.
What scuba gear will you use?
Clearly a dry suit is necessary along with your basic scuba equipment. We provide a dry suit during your course. A full length, wicking base layer is a good to start with.
£100 (own suit)/£150 (hire suit)
