PADI Drysuit Speciality
Who should take this course?
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.
If you’re at least 10 years old and certified as a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver or higher, you can enroll in the Dry Suit Diver course. However, when you're diving in a drysuit we need to make sure we have a drysuit to fit you. For this reason, we recommend that you contact us first to make sure we have your sizes available.
Our price of £195 includes your tuition, PADI manual, PADI Certification Fee and dive kit hire.
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.
You may be able to get college credit for the Dry Suit Diver course – ask your instructor.
Also, the first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification – ask your instructor about earning credit.
How can you start learning now?
You can view the SCUBA DIVING SCOTLAND course schedules below to check the dates against your availability. Then you just click on the BUY NOW tab to book and enrol in the course and pick up a PADI Dry Suit Diver Manual. By reading the manual, you’ll be ready to get into the water with your instructor and start practising with your dry suit.
What scuba gear will you use?
Clearly a dry suit is necessary along with your basic scuba equipment. Your PADI Instructor or local dive center staff will explain other gear or equipment options you may need to dive comfortably with your dry suit. For example, because you’re more buoyant in a dry suit than in a wetsuit, you may want a different weight system setup.
