Dry Suit Diver

Are you interested in safely extending the diving season?

Would you like warmer dives all year round ?

Would you like to stay dry in the water

Dry suit diving is the perfect answer. Drysuit diving presents some specific challenges, however it is an option open to all Open Water certified divers who seek quality training and wish to stay warmer and more comfortable while in our cooler waters. To answer the need for this training, Sussex Scuba offers the PADI Drysuit Course, an exciting program taught by our qualified staff. Our course covers drysuit diving techniques, emphasising safety and emergency procedures, and will ensure you enjoy your cold water diving

The program consists of one evening classroom session and a pool orientation session. Certification is completed by completing two open water training dives.

What does the course cover ?

Basic thermal considerations and how you get cold underwater- cold water physiology. Comparison of dry suit options, advantages and disadvantages of each type. Drysuit construction, types of drysuits, zippers and material. Types of seals and valves. Insulation and undergarments. Hoods, collars, dry gloves. Care, maintenance, storage, packing and repair.
In the pool session we look at the correct method of donning a dry suit, preparing to dive, equipment evaluation and buoyancy check, including procedures to prevent runaway feet first ascents.

During the open water session, we practice safe descents and ascents, equipment familiarisation, emergency procedures for drysuit diving, and assisting your dive partner
