Scuba diving with a dry suit is useful at many types of dive sites. A dry suit is necessary when ice diving and sometimes while altitude diving. Many 

technical divers wear dry suits on almost every dive due to the length of the time spent underwater. The longer the diver is in the water, the more thermal 

protection is required. If technical diving is something that interests you, check out the Discover Tec Diving experience.

SDI Dry Suit Diver

The SDI Dry Suit Diver Course will open up a whole new world of diving to you. Many diving environments are better experienced in a dry suit. Some areas have an abundance of marine life waiting to be seen and photographed – they just happen to be a little colder! Dry suits are also used in tropical water during the cooler months. This course allows the student to develop the knowledge and skills to properly use a dry suit. It will discuss the types of dry suits, accessories, maintenance and how to make basic repairs.

Who this course is for:

The certified diver looking for advanced training in dry suit equipment, selection and diving techniques. This diver can extend their diving season, spend more time diving in cooler environments and/or enjoy enhancing their dive experience by staying warm and cozy in a dry suit.

Course prerequisites:

  • SDI Open Water Scuba Diver, SDI Junior Open Water Diver, or equivalent
  • Minimum age 18, 12 with parental consent
