Dry Suit Diver

Want to 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 Speciality course, you’ll learn how to use a dry suit. And that keeps you warm! Even in very cold water.

  • Must be a PADI Open Water Diver or Junior Open Water Diver (or hold a qualifying certification from another training organisation) and at least 10 years old
  • Don and doff techniques specific to your dry suit
  • Dry suit buoyancy control skills
  • Dry suit maintenance and storage
  • Undergarment (fleece or overall-type garments worn under the dry suit) options
  • The PADI Dry Suit Diver certification credits toward the PADI Master Scuba Diver rating

We have courses running throughout the year around the Isle of Wight and at Vobster Quay in Somerset. As a stand alone course the price is £145.00 with manual and certification card included in the price; entrance fee to Vobster or boat dives is not included in the Course price.
