Dry Suit Diver

Get Equipped For the Right Dive!

Quick Details

Certified Diver

Dive dry in the Avalon Waters with this course!

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

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.

Clearly a dry suit is necessary along with your basic scuba equipment. Your Diving Catalina Instructor will explain other gear or equipment options you may need to dive comfortably with your dry suit.
