PADI Dry Suit Diver

Feel the cold? Want to dive all year round and stay nice and warm? Then dive dry.  A dry suit does exactly what its name implies, it seals you off from the surrounding water keeping you comfortable and secure. Tasmania has some of the best temperate water diving in the world and it gets even better in the winter months.  Becoming a dry suit diver enables you to enjoy your diving throughout the entire year in Tasmania and other temperate water areas, more often and in comfort.

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 you’ll practice the following

  • 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.

What you will need

You will need to bring all your scuba equipment.  We can help supply any accessories you do not have as well as hire scuba equipment for the course if required.  You will also need to provide your own.

  • Dry Suit Surface
  • Marker Buoy
  • Knife or cutting tool.

This course can be done all year round as we run it at request during one of our Open water courses.

Once purchased we will arrange to have your PADI manual sent to you and also contact you to book a time to complete the practical session of the course and answer any questions you my have.
