Drysuit Diver

 

Water may cover seven tenths of the Earth’s surface, but if it weren't for exposure suits, diving would be limited to a relatively narrow band straddling the equator. That would indeed be unfortunate as some of the best diving lies well north and south of the tropical waters and also in lakes, at altitude and at deeper depths that constantly remain cool. Without protection from the cold, some of the best diving would be inaccessible.

Of the exposure suit types available, the dry suit has opened the door to comfortable diving in the coolest waters.

Dry suit diving will allow you to comfortably enjoy fantastic cold water diving. There is phenomenal diving right on your door step just waiting to be discovered by you. Dry suits reduce the heat loss that your body suffers diving in wetsuits which allows you to remain comfortable in water temperatures in single figures.

Diving in cold water IS fun. Being cold is not!!

The Dry suit course teaches you the techniques to dive safely and comfortably in your dry suit.
