Introduction to the Drysuit Diver Speciality

Planning on diving in the UK throughout the year? Why suffer getting cold in a wetsuit? Learn to dive in a drysuit. Unlike a wetsuit, a dry suit seals you off from the outside water and that keeps you warm! Even in surprisingly cold water.

Even if you don’t want to dive in the middle of the winter, a dry suit will allow you to extend your dive season. In the right equipment, you can stand up to the elements and take advantage of the generally better visibility offered by winter months (especially at inland dive sites such as quarries and lakes). Also, of course, you won’t be sitting on the boat between dives shivering, because you will be warm and dry.

During this one-day course (2 open water dives) you will learn:

  • Techniques for diving in a drysuit and associated buoyancy control skills.
  • Emergency drills.
  • Drysuit maintenance, storage and basic repair.

Prior to going diving in open water you will need to complete a pool training session (included in the course price).
