Dry Suit Diver
Duration 1 Day
Don't like going for a dive when the water is cold? Want to go for a dive but have an important meeting straight after and you don't want to get wet? The Dry Suit Specialty course with Perth Scuba is for you! Diving dry is a strange feeling and you will soon become the envy of your cold diving buddies in the middle of winter. Jump into your dry suit (clothes and all ) and head for the water. Complete your dive nice and toasty warm and then hop back out of your dry suit and you are ready to go! A great way to dive! Don't ever let the weather be an issue when it comes to diving. Dive all year round with the Dry Suit Specialty course. On this course in a swimming pool environment, you will be taught how to fill your drysuit, release air from your dry suit, perfect buoyancy using the dry suit and learn how to right yourself, if the air goes into the feet of your suit. Learn about the types of drysuits available and what is the best option for your type of diving.

Who should take this course?
Want to stay warm? Want to extend your scuba diving season? Then dive dry. A dry suit seals you off from the water and keeps you comfortable, even in surprisingly cold water. There is incredible diving in the world's cooler regions and in some areas, conditions are even better in colder months. Becoming a dry suit diver allows you to expand your boundaries and dive more places, more often.
If you're at least 14 years old and certified as a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver or higher, you can enrol in the Dry Suit Diver course.
What will you learn?
The first thing you'll discover is which dry suit style and accompanying undergarments are right for you and the diving you'll do. Then you'll learn how to take care of your dry suit. During two dives, in addition to a confined water dive, you'll practice:
- Putting on and taking off your dry suit with minimal assistance.
- Mastering buoyancy control using your dry suit.
- Dive safety procedures when using a dry suit.
The first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification – ask your instructor about earning credit.
How can you start learning now?
Stop by Perth Scuba or select your date online and pick up a PADI Dry Suit Diver Manual and Dry Suit Diving video. By reading the manual and watching the video before class, you'll be ready to get into the water with your instructor and start practicing with your dry suit.
What scuba gear will you use?
Clearly a dry suit is necessary along with your basic scuba equipment. The Perth Scuba staff will explain other gear or equipment options you may need to dive comfortably with your dry suit. For example, because you're more buoyant in a dry suit than in a wetsuit, you may want a different weight system set-up.
