Course Description

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 10 years old and certified as an Open Water Diver, you can enroll in the Dry Suit Diver course.

What You Will 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.

Includes

The TSC Dry Suit certification course fee includes use of our training pools, instruction, use of a Dry Suit, BCD, regulators, tanks and weights and certification card. Students are required to have their own mask, fins and snorkel for this course. Due to the wide range of sizes students will be asked to provide thermal undergarments for warmth.
