DRY SUIT DIVER The PADI Dry Suit Diver Course

The PADI Dry Suit Diver course with DIVEWORLD

Fancy staying warmer  on a dive? Then dive dry. Yes! Unlike a wetsuit, a dry suit seals you off from the outside water and that keeps you warmer! Even in surprisingly cold water.                    Click to ask us about our superb range of Azdry suits.

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, lakes, sinkholes and caves etc. Our Farne Island trip as an example to see the seals. 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. Add this course on to your PADI Open Water  or Advanced Open Water course and dive in greater comfort from the start.

Your Next Adventure

Scuba diving with a dry suit is perfect when diving many types of dive sites, most UK divers will dive in a Dry Suit. A dry suit is necessary when ice diving and sometimes while altitude diving. Many technical divers wear dry suits on almost every dive due to the length of the time spent underwater. The longer the diver is in the water, the more thermal protection is required. If technical diving is something that interests you, check out our Discover Tec Diving experience.
