Boat Diving ClassWant to stay warm and in cold water environments? Then stay dry and dive in a Dry Suit. A dry suit seals you off from the water and keeps you comfortable in cold water. There are incredible diving locations in the world’s cooler regions and in some areas, conditions are even better in colder months such as Monterey Bay California. Becoming a dry suit diver allows you to expand your boundaries and dive more places, more often.

This Dry Suit scuba diving class teaches the skills and concepts required to safely and comfortably dive while using a dry suit. You will learn the special requirements for dry suit diving, how to use your new equipment, the benefits of a dry suit, and how to deal with emergency situations that are unique to dry suit diving.

You will earn the SSI Dry Suit Diving Specialty certification after completing this program.

Open water students completing their certification dives within two weeks of taking the Dry Suit course will complete their certification dives in the Dry Suit on Saturday and Sunday.
