PADI Dry Suit Diver

Want to stay warm? Want to extend your scuba diving season? Then dive dry.

A very popular PADI speciality course, especially for divers that like the UK waters.

PADI Dry Suit Diver Course

Not ready to end your scuba diving season? In a dry suit you won’t have to!

It’s no secret that the weather in the UK is unpredictable; meaning diving in a wetsuit could cut your season short. As a PADI Dry Suit Diver you can extend your diving season by staying warm and dry in surprisingly cold water.

In the winter months you are likely to find better visibility; notably when diving in inland dive sites such as quarries, lakes and caves, but you will also gain access to more challenging dive sites across the country and throughout the year. For example, a dry suit is a necessity when ice diving and often when altitude diving.

You will no longer quiver at the thought of jumping into cold water, as the suit seals you off completely and the thermal undersuit holds in your body heat – keeping you both dry and warm.

Nothing beats being toasty while UK diving in November.
