What will you 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.
- Also, the first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification – ask Scuba Evolution about earning credit.
What scuba gear will you use?
Clearly a dry suit is necessary along with your basic scuba equipment. Scuba Evolution will explain other gear or equipment options you may need to dive comfortably with your dry suit. For example: because you’re more buoyant in a dry suit than in a wetsuit, you may want a different weight system setup.
