Become a PADI Drysuit Diver Specialist - The Benefits

Surprisingly, drysuits are useful for many dive sites. A dry suit is necessary when ice or altitude diving. Many technical divers wear drysuits on almost every dive due to the length of the time they spend underwater.

You need more thermal protection the longer you are in the water. Check out the Discover Tec Diving experience if this type of specialised scuba interests you.

PADI Drysuit Diver Specialty Certifications can also credit towards the top rating in recreational diving, the PADI Master Scuba Diver.

Drysuits - The Really Cool Part!

Unlike scuba wetsuits, drysuits seal the diver from the surrounding cold water helping to keep you warm while submerging in cold water environments. A drysuit helps you meet the challenge of diving in extremely cold water such as inland caves, quarries, lakes, sinkholes, underneath ice, and during Northern European winters.

The drysuit diver is equipped to explore some of the cooler dive sites around the world where even using a 7mm wetsuit would not be possible. The course requires a confined water drysuit training session for divers who have never used one before. This is to orient you to dry suit diving prior to making the two required training dives in the open water environment.
