PADI Specialty Course Manual: Dry Suit Diver
Some of the famous dive sites of this world are in cold water areas, such as the well-known dive site in Silfra, Iceland, where you can dive between two tectonic plates. With temperatures barely above freezing, you want to be protected against the cold and dive in a drysuit. By becoming a dry suit diver you expand your boundaries and are able to dive more places, throughout the whole year.
Due to the large air-filled capacity in a dry suit, buoyancy is harder to master. In the PADI Dry Suit Diver Specialty Course (79901) you’ll practice donning and doffing your dry suit with minimal assistance, mastering buoyancy control underwater, as well as dive safety procedures when using a dry suit.
After finishing your knowledge development, schedule your drysuit dives with a PADI instructor. During two dives, you will put the theory into practice. After the course, you can rent and dive in a drysuit anywhere. If you prefer to have your own, you can check out the drysuit and undergarment sections in our webshop.
