PADI Dry Suit Diving Course
DATES: Weekends, or weekdays on request
PRICE: £245 or £175 when integrated with another course
MINIMUM AGE: 10 years old
It’s not diving in cold water that isn’t fun, it’s being cold! Wearing a dry suit keeps you warm and dry throughout your dive and allows you to stay underwater for longer periods. Unlike James Bond, you won’t be wearing a Tuxedo under your dry suit but either an insulated body suit or warm clothing, depending on which dry suit you use.
The course teaches you the different types of dry suit available and how to use them. It’s very different to diving in a wetsuit so we start your course off in shallow confined water. Once you’ve mastered the basics you are ready to complete two open water dives which are either conducted in Mercers Lake, Chepstow or possibly on one of our club trips.
PADI’s eLearning. lets you read and watch video about dry suit diving on your PC, Mac or tablet in preperation for the pratical skills
All equipment hire including dry suit and under suit
Dry suit orientation in shallow water
2 open water dives (or one extra dive if combined with another course)
