During your PADI Dry Suit Diver Specialty course, you’ll not only cover the background knowledge related to dry suit diving, you’ll go up to the aquatic center for 1 evening to practice in a confined environment. Then, once you’ve mastered confined water, it’s time for two open water dives and applying that knowledge, including dive planning, organization, techniques, problems and buoyancy control.

And the best part? We can run this specialty alongside every course we offer, so anytime you want to earn this specialty, we can teach you! All you need to do is call or drop by the shop to register.
