PADI Dry Suit Diver

Diving Tenerife - PADI Dry Suit Diver Speciality

Wanna stay warm and toasty on a dive? Then stay out of the water. What? Stay out of the water? Yes! Unlike a wetsuit, a dry suit seals you off from the outside water. In the PADI Dry Suit Diver Specialty course, you'll learn how to use a dry suit. And that keeps you warm! Even in very cold water.

What will you learn on the Dry Suit Speciality

  • Preparation and "getting in and out" techniques specific to dry suits
  • Undergarments
  • Dry suit buoyancy control skills
  • How to recover when air is in your boots and you are upside down
  • Dry suit maintenance and storage

Buoyancy techniques for dry suit diving are different to wet or semi-dry suit diving. As such we spend 1/2 day in confined water practising skills prior to open water dives.

How long will it take?

Three dives normally over two days.
