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
- 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.
