Whether you are newly certified or an experienced diver, dry suit diving is for you! Let’s face it: New England Diving can, at times, be a bit on the chilly side. Dry Suit diving presents some unique challenges in comparison to diving in a wet suit. It’s these challenges that the Dry Suit Diver course will help you learn to overcome. Come learn to dive warm, comfortable and safe with the experienced staff here at Undersea Divers.

The Course

In this 2 day course there are three main sections you will cover; academic, pool, and ocean dives. You will have an academic session which is combined with a pool session on the first day. On the second day, you will complete 2 ocean dives. In the academic portion of the course we will compare different types of exposure protection options and the advantages and disadvantages as well as the care involved with each option. In addition, we will cover the different types of valves, seals, undergarments, and other dry suit accessories and components that you might need during your diving career. Finally we will discuss some of the special considerations for dry suit diving and methods for coping with these situations should they arise underwater. In the pool portion we will familiarize ourselves with some of the buoyancy characteristics and new techniques that are required to safely and comfortably dive in a dry suit. In the open water dive session we will apply the skills that we learned in the pool to an open water dive.
