Drysuit Diver

Want to stay warm? Want to extend your scuba diving season?

Dive dry! A drysuit 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.

In addition to reviewing dive safety procedures when using a dry suit, you'll learn:

  • Putting on and taking off your dry suit with minimal assistance.

  • Mastering buoyancy control when using a drysuit.

  • Dive safety procedures when using a drysuit.

How to take care of your dry suit.
