Dry Suit Diver

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 even better in colder months. Becoming a dry suit diver allows you to expand your boundaries and dive more places, more often.

The first thing you will discover is which dry suit style and accompanying undergarments are right for you and the diving you’ll be do. Then you’ll learn how to take care of your dry suit. During the two dives, in addition to a confined water dive, you will 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


In order to finish this course there is one confined water dive and two open water dives. While it is possible to do all the dives from the beach, most people prefer to complete this course over at Catalina Island.
