Description

 I think we can all agree, being cold can be a real bummer when you're trying to enjoy a dive. No matter where you go or what kind of diving you do, ultimately, Drysuitdrysuit diving is the best.  Wetsuits help to slow the loss of your body heat, but if you really want to be more comfortable,then there's no substitute for a drysuit.  

There's a myth out there, drysuits are for extremely cold water only... wrong!  That is simply not the case.  Even tropical divers are finding that going dry is the ideal choice. Everyday divers out there are saying 'once you go dry, you never go back'    

 

The Course: To use a drysuit safely you need specialized training. In the drysuit course that we teach you will learn the proper techniques, apply these new skills into practice in confined water then to open water. Upon completion you will know how to control your buoyancy, how to use and maintain your suit as well as how to manage the potential problems that are unique to drysuit diving.

 

How it works:  Remember back to your open water course... Water conducts heat away from the body 25 times faster than air.  With that in mind, a drysuit works similarly to a wetsuit. But instead of trapping water next to your skin, the drysuit traps a layer of air. You wear insulating garments under the drysuit that keep you warm and add to suit's effectiveness. Because air is a better insulator than water, the drysuit keeps you much warmer. Are you a nitrox diver? That longer bottom time you enjoy with enriched air can often exceed your wetsuit's ability to keep you warm. The longer you're in the water, the more a drysuit makes sense.
