Learn to Dive Dry!
Are you traveling to a cold-water environment such as Iceland or Antartica? Do you want to stay dry on night dives? Unlike wetsuits, drysuits are filled with air. During your drysuit course, your instructor will teach you how to control the air in your drysuit along with your buoyancy. You’ll also learn about different types of drysuits, basic drysuit repairs and maintenance.
During one pool session and two open water dives, you’ll learn how to comfortably and confidently dive in a drysuit. An experienced instructor will help you dial in your buoyancy and shorten the learning curve.

Most divers enroll in the Dry Suit Diver specialty course after earning their Open Water Diver certification, but in some areas, it’s necessary for divers to complete their Open Water course in a drysuit.
If you’re interested in using a drysuit during your Open Water Diver course, talk to your instructor. To earn the drysuit specialty certification, you’ll need to make one additional dive after your Open Water Diver certification. Ask your instructor for more information.
Each Diver must be medically fit to dive. Please reach out to the Dive Center for a copy of the most up to date diver medical form.
