PADI Dry Suit Diver

Dry Suit Diver

Dry suits let you dive more challenging dive sites, and extend your dive season. When you have the right cold water scuba diving attire, you can stand up to the elements and take advantage of the generally better visibility offered by winter months - especially at inland dive sites such as quarries, lakes, sinkholes and caves etc. As a dry suit diver, you're equipped to scuba dive some of the world's incredible dive sites in the world's cooler regions that are best enjoyed in a dry suit even in their warmer months. 

This specialty can be used as one of five Specialty certifications required for your Master Scuba Diver certification.
