PADI Dry Suit Diver

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.

Minimum Requirements:
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.
**This class can be taken in conjucntion with the PADI Open Water course so that you may complete your quarry training in a Dry Suit.  Please contact the shop for more details.

Academics

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.

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.

Equipment

Clearly, a dry suit is necessary along with your basic scuba equipment. You will need to rent a dry suit or purchase one prior to your class. Aquanautics does not rent dry suits. Your PADI Instructor 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.

Getting Started

You can enroll in the course online or come in to the shop. While you're here you can pick up a PADI Dry Suit Diver Manual and Dry Suit Diving video. By reading the manual and watching the video before class, you’ll be ready to get into the water with your instructor and start practicing with your dry suit. This class can be taken for FREE with the purchase of a Drysuit and Undergarment package. Contact the shop for more details!
